will it float if let go of it?
RICHARD W No, it will sink.
JIM D No, it will not float, due to the fact it is made of stainless steel and fiberglass...however, it is an excellent Lionfish spear if you don't mind taking it slow and getting close enough to them...I have bought two so far and gave one to a friend in Cozumel.
GEORGE T The spear will not float. I use the power band as a lanyard so as not to loose the spear.
M C The spear sinks to the bottom. No bouancy. It does work great though. We went out yesterday and sent 4 to Lionfish heaven. I recommend knocking down a few barbs though. Mine has 6 tines and all have barbs. I think two or 3 are plenty to get the job done and it will make it easier to get the Lionfish off.
ART R I've used the spear quite a bit. It handles easily and you can hold the spear and hook the tubing in the web between finger/thumb and its secure. Super sharp tip so the real issue is not hurting yourself. I would recommend a slightly longer tip - in some situations the spear is too short for Lion Fish.
DON B Absolutely NOT! Both the steel tips and the fiberglass shaft make the spear quite negatively buoyant.
DAVID S no, it won't float. It is made of strong lightweight fiberglass but the tip is steel.
MICHAEL F Great spear but absolutely does not float
JOSE C no it won't float. It sinks quickly.
JASON T No it will not float. Just get a lanyard and attach it to your BC or weight belt.
DON D It will not float. It is easy to use, but needs some type of point cover to be safe when not in use. I like it.
DAVID M NO, it does not float
ANDREW S Mini Lion Fish spear works great but still need to be careful when taking lion fish off. I use a Knife and cut it off and feed the other fish around the reef. I also found a large Pill jar to carry the tip in for my luggage.
GREG L sinks like a rock!!
KEN R It won't float, but works well..very deadly and simple
H. S No, it's negatively buoyant.
DONATO G No...it will not float.
DON W No, if u drop it, say good bye.
DENNIS B I don't know. I gave it as a tip to our d.ive master. Probably not, IMO.
RAZ B It will not float if you let go of it. This type of spear is designed to never leave your hand, but if you are very concerned, then tie a separate line to the spear and tie the spear off to yourself.
RONALD S No, it will sink.
