THE GREEK EXPERT ENTERS PATHOS TEAM
“Pathos” welcomes Mr Costanasios Andreas to its team!
A great spearo and a product design expert, whose knowledge and experience are going to invigorate the Pathos team even more. “Pathos” has already shown, through its products, the capacity to innovate and to bring high quality and experience in the spearfishing market.
But, let’s meet Mr Costanasios a bit more:
He is a Greek spearfishing champion with good results in many competitions, such as being “Greek Teams Champion” in 2012 and 2016, winning the “Syros Nautical Week Spearfishing ournament” three times, and being champion of “Glafkos Spearfishing Championship” also 3 times. He was also a “Greek National Team athlete” in Croatia, and in 2014-2018 he was a “Greek National Team athletes selector”, with the great result of “World Champion with National Team” at “SYROS 2016 World Championship”.
Born in Athens in 1973, he competed for the first time in 1996, together with the famous Greek Champion Roberto Calich.
He also wrote a book, titled “In the fish Hunter’s Lab“ (2017), with contents coming from the big experience and passion of Andreas Costanasios to improve all the spearfishing equipment, also thanks to his big talent in drawing and sketching items in 3 dimensions. All these qualities have contributed to him being requested by many clubs to have seminars and workshops in all of Greece. He is also one of the first Spearfishing YouTubers, also winning first place in the “Deepex Spearfishing Video Awards”.
From November 2020, Mr Andreas Costanasios (A.C.) collaborates with Pathos in the design and new products department and in the production quality check.
Below, we can enjoy him in some photos and read some of his words from his last interview.
«What is Pathos for you? What does Pathos represent
for a Greek athlete?
AC: Pathos has been a great opportunity for me to make good use of and to unfold my inclination towards the design and manufacture of everything that is spearfishing related. I consider myself very lucky to be able to work on something I love so much. As far as the needs of Greek athletes are concerned, Pathos has always been a great aid, providing us with the safest and most efficient equipment; not to mention the financial support every athlete under Pathos umbrella gets. I am sure everyone knows about that…
Since 1991, I’ve been involved in improving my spearfishing equipment, designing and creating conversions, in order to make my gear work at its best. During my time with Pathos, I intend to use my experience of 34 years both in conceiving and materializing new ideas, as well as improving those in production today.
Which Pathos products do you prefer and which products you have some ideas to improve?
AC: My favorite Pathos product is Laser and Saragos spearguns. I love their simplicity and their shooting accuracy. I also like Pathos carbon blades for two reasons: a) They provide the boost every deep spearo needs and 2) They are comfortable. The basics that we all deal with are the speargun, the fins and the mask, along with their accessories. We, as Pathos staff, will focus on these issues for starters.
Which Pathos products did you try already in your career and what did you like the most?
AC: The closed muzzle Laser speargun (old school) and a longer shaft attached to it will always have a place in my speargun bag. My most recent Pathos product trial is the Sniper. Its accuracy, underwater movement and perfect balance have really amazed me. I definitely recommend it! Also, the reels and shafts by Pathos are worth giving a try!»
