About JBL Explorer 24 Lightning Single Sling Spear Gun (4D24-L)

If you're looking for a spear gun that's big on performance while still leaving a little green in your wallet, the Explorer is perfect. Made with a corrosion resistant hardened 17-4 stainless steel trigger and shaft, JBL748SB shaft has a pointed tip and wing, cast aluminum, two-piece handle, and combined with a 1" (2.5 cm) aerospace alloy barrel for quick target acquisition and fatal results. The Guns overall length is 50" (127 cm). Same parallel power source and low profile design make the Explorer perfect for cagy fish when the shot window is a split second.

Lightning models feature Tru-Glide rail and 48" (122 cm) 9/32" (7.11 mm) shaft. These guns are all about speed and accuracy. To increase power and additional 5/8" O D (16 mm) JBL424 sling can be added. The sling is a unique latex formulation and dip manufacturing process that delivers radical modulus strength. The power curve increases as bands are stretched for optimum performance. Special anti-oxidants help protect against harmful U V rays, prolonging sling life. The slings wishbone is 302 stainless wires that provide superior strength and durability.

The Gun is equipped with the JBL515L Shock Line. Sometimes we miss or we shoot a large fish and the recoil can pull the gun out of your grip, which ever the shock line will keep you in control. Guns range is 21' (6.4 meters). At the end of the day it's not the flash, but the fish count that really matters, and nothing stacks them up like the Explorer.

    Comments about JBL Explorer 24 Lightning Single Sling Spear Gun (4D24-L):

    200 lb mono broke first time I used it, but I think it was the way it was crimped at the spear shaft. I added a reel and 600 lb line, and changed the shaft to a slider type(748SB6mm or 742SBF6mm. I like the weight, and handling. I added an additional 424 power band but havnt tried it yet. I was very pleased with this product.And it doesnt take Conan to arm it. All in all its great as is without modifications

      Questions about this item:

      Daniel C  can i add a reel?
      PIETER C  Not worth it.
      Shopper  Anyone been successful in making this somewhat bouyant?
      TERRY H  I havnt tried, but was thinking along the lines of a shallow wing type structure on the muzzle. Or some type of buoyant material inside the hollow tubing. I knew what I was buying when I got it, and with some customizing, mine is already heavier than the OEM gun. But a little buoyancy towards the muzzle would be nice. I use a float and line in order to keep track of a dropped gun, and use a snap clip to my weight belt or torpedo float if I need both hands at the surface. I would also be intrested in what other users have to say.
      Chad K  In the description and features it informs you can add an additional band. Where is the room to add another band or does one have to get a muzzle upgrade?
      DERRIK H  It can hold two 9/16 bands or one 5/8, the power will be about the same though.
