About JBL Elite Woody 38-Special Gun (6W38E)

Looking for a spear gun that's fast, quiet, accurate the Elite. Woody feature JBL's revolutionary M-8, 3-piece trigger mechanism. Its compound leverage design and laser cut 1/4" (6.35 mm) stainless components make it the strongest mechanism in the world and provide shooters with smooth, effortless trigger pull. The handle is well, amazing. The ergonomic 45° design and hex pattern increases grip control and accuracy. Once you hold it you will never want to shoot another gun. Shoot Tahitian-style or remove the flopper and screw on a break-away tip for large game fish. Gun deliver precision accuracy in all conditions and feature the legendary JBL performance and durability that has made them a world leader for over 40 years.

Point, shoot, eat. It's about that easy if you're shooting a JBL Woody spear gun. Each solid African mahogany blank is hand selected for straightness and grain pattern. The result: a spear gun that works just as well shooting fish as it does looking good. Just pick one up and you'll know what JBL's talking about. Comfortable in blue water or right off the beach, these guns are the best shooting partner you'll ever dive with. The all new M8 Trigger is perfection. New internal components reduce loading force by 50%. Like its predecessor, the M7, it can handle inhuman levels of pressure 2400 lbs. (1089 kg), yet still deliver a butter-smooth pull less than 8 lbs. (3.63 kg). The secret is its proprietary three-piece trigger mechanism.

The JBL Woody Elite 38-Special Spear Gun has a gun overall length of 36" (91.4 cm), comes with a corrosion resistant 17-4 (spring) stainless shaft that is hand-tuned for alignment then heat-treated for maximum hardness to reduce flex and provide optimum energy transfer. The shaft for the Woody Elite 38-Special Spear Gun, measures 36" x 5/16" (91.4 cm x 8 mm) and has a 5/16" threaded point and flopper wing with shark fins sling tabs. Spear shaft has a 2-sling capacity.

The Gun is equipped with the JBL515E 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. Gun has an integrated open muzzle, with full shaft rail contact for maximum accuracy and comes with two Nitro 16" x 5/8" (406 mm x 16 mm) slings. JBL's unique latex formulation and dip manufacturing process delivers radical modulus strength. The power curve increases as bands are stretched for optimum performance.

Broke on first stretch


One of the power bands broke on the first stretch. Leisure Pro estimated it could be 5~7 weeks replacement time after they received the defective part back. AND They had the replacement band in stock. I bought 2 and went fishing the next weekend. Between Leisure Pro and JBL, both provide terrible customer service on an item that shouldn't break on the first pull of the band.


Great gun for a great price!


Well made ,great feel in the water, easy to arm.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
CHRISTOPHER H  Loved my JBL D7, but was looking for a little bit quieter gun for a stealthier approach. This gun did a great job. It has a bit less of a punch than the D7, but upgrading the bands fixed the issue.
Heidy T  Is this fun an open muzzle or closed one?
Sam S  This speargun is an open muzzle. The shark fin tabs are an easy way to tell that it has an open muzzle set up.
Right on Cue R  It's a speargun! Neither open, nor closed!
SHANE W  It is an open muzzle. If you're new to spearing, the line wraps over the top and secures the spear. I've owned it for years and it's been a great gun. I use it for inland lakes so nothing too huge, but it's fast and accurate.
MIKE M  Closed, super smooth, easy to reload.
Shopper  Is the 44" measured from the tip of the spear to the butt?
DAVID,ROBIN J  Yes ,We love this gun for reef spearfishing.We use longer guns for blue water.
JEFF H  The JBL 38 special elite woody that I am using is 42 and 5/8 inches from spear tip to butt.. For use in kelp, rocky structrue, and shelves; it is the best spear gun, period. If you are working open water get the same rig, only bigger. I prefer bands with rope over wire.
