Best underwater scooter for spear fishing | Tusa or Apollo?

Can you recommend a great underwater scooter below 2k which is great for spearfishing, etc?

Thanks so much!

Best scooter three is is a Silent Submersion Magnus.
I just sold mine, used it for cave diving, in cave diving you want reliability above all else, and Silent Submersions are the cave scooter.
The MAGNUS. High power, long range ultra performance DPV

Ain't cheap though,but you get what you pay for in a scooter. If your near Central Fl call some of the cave shops around and see what they may have used, you may get lucky, a Minnus would be a good little scoot for that if you can find one used.
