About JBL Explorer 22 Single Sling Speargun (4D22)

If you're looking for a speargun that's big on performance while still leaving a little green in your wallet, the Explorer is perfect. Same quality as the Magnum Series: hardened stainless trigger and shaft, cast aluminum, two piece handle, but combined with a 1" aerospace alloy barrel for quick target acquisition and fatal results. Same parallel power source and low profile design make the Explorer perfect for cagey fish when the shot window is a split second

The JBL Explorer 22 Single Sling Speargun (4D22) is commonly used for Close To Shore, Cold Water, Open Water, Small Prey, Warm Water and more. The JBL Explorer 22 Single Sling Speargun (4D22) is popular because customers like the following qualities of the JBL Explorer 22 Single Sling Speargun (4D22): Accurate, Durable, Good Range, Lightweight, Low Recoil.

    Comments about JBL Explorer 22 Single Sling Speargun (4D22):

    I love this speargun for the price, quality, and performance. I have used it on about 10-15 seperate occasions in lakes and rives and I have not had a single problem. It is simple to load and operate and it seems to shoot true each time. I purchased a 2nd band for it, but I only used it once. The single band that comes installed has plenty of power behind it for now.

    Comments about JBL Explorer 22 Single Sling Speargun (4D22):

    This is a great overall gun. The only thing is that it has poor range but that can easily be solved. I simply replaced the 9/16 and out on two 5/8 rubber, it works great after that.I use it to hunt all kinds of fishes like grouper, snapper, barracuda etc.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  What is difference between jbl explorer 22 and jbl explorer 22 lightning?
        KIMBERLY S  I don't know but I have the jbl explorer 22 and it doesn't penetrate fish. Bounces off. Probably angers them.
        Shopper  I have been using this gun for about six months, i have replaced the bands with 2 new 18s, the same thickness, but im still losing fish, especially larger and faster fish. What size band will give this gun more thrust, and what tip will pierce and hold better?
        DOMINGO S  hi shopper, I when to the samething you are writing about it and somebody give me a new idea and since that i haven't lose one mnoore finsh since that, the spear of the jbl 22 is to heavy so i changed for another spear that i build by myself.
        Shopper  I'm 13 yrs old, 100 pounds and about 5 ft. tall do you think I should get a bigger or smaller gun and are the bands easy to pull back?
        CHARLES B  With a little practice, I think you can manage. Its all in the technique. You may want to put a second band on the gun as well. I found it a little weak with just the one band. I would not recommend a smaller gun. This is an entry level gun IMO.
