I'll be traveling for a year around Oz and space in the 4wd is everything!!

Any thoughts on good inflatable floats, who has one? Do you like it? I have used a rob Allen float but happy to trade it with a decent inflatable or just here people's thoughts on inflatable floats.

Also people's thoughts on roller guns again do t have much room in the car so if I can bring a smaller gun that shoots like a 130 cm great. Anyone have a roller gun? How do you like it?

One of my mates has a roller gun. Seems to break every few weeks.
I have a carbon that i bought 4 years ago and hasn't skipped a beat.

If you're 4WDing, then i recommend getting one that's simpler and less that could go wrong.
Spares kit will be a must...and i would even take a hand spear as a backup.

Both Esclapez and Legendary have guns that are reliable.

Durable, high VIS, and takes up little space. I got a nice little foot pump from a bike store pumps it up quite quickly.
