The most important thing a new owner will encounter as a challenge will be cocking the gun by stretching the band to the shaft notch. Due to this gun's lack of extension butt pad its very tough to get the band loaded. I've made a PVC sleeve/pad that fits over the handle to give me more leverage for easier loading. On the positive side, I use this for spearing Northern Pike in Alaska's lakes where the quarry is often hunkering in thick weed beds and shooting distance is often point blank so the limited range is not an issue in this application. The shock cord does need to be lengthened for longer shots and to give the fish room to fight. Works great in close quarters and light enough to use all day without tiring.

    Comments about JBL Mini Carbine Spear Gun (D-6):

    I use this gun for fish and lobsters in and around reefs in the Caribbean. This is not a bad starter gun, but I have used it 3 times and I'm ready for a better one. The default range is just insufficient. I replaced the cord with a longer one for more range, but I lose many fish because the spear does not completely penetrate, or the fish simply spin off the line.
    Having used my friend's Beuchat, I now find this gun to be terrible by comparison. You'll have a lot more fun, and bag a lot more fish with a proper gun, which this is not.

    Comments about JBL Mini Carbine Spear Gun (D-6):

    The ripcord this gun comes with is very short, it also does not come with a spear tip. I just went to the dive shop down the street and got a longer cord and a good tip. Otherwise though this is a great gun if you're going after small to medium sized fish. I got a 6lb sheepshead last weekend no problem.

      This is my fourth JBL mini. I use it just about every weekend. It is great for small to medium fish--2 to 20 lbs. Easy to maneuver in and around pilings and rocks. Had bigger, sold'em. You want be disappointed.

      Everyone seems to have a problem with the short range. Easy way to fix that....buy a longer shock chord. Ever since i added a new one this gun has been great. I made the new line about 8 ft or so and it seems to work great.

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  how long is it?
      Frank L  22.25 Inches without the shaft.
      Shopper  I have this gun but need a replacement tip. What do I need to get?
      ALEXANDER P  you need to buy 6mm replacement tip
      Tom A  Does it come with 1 or 2 bands?
      ROBERT S  The gun itself has 2 short bands that propel the spear, but it did not come with any spare bands, if that's what you're asking. It's actually a pretty nice speargun for the money, nothing very elaborate, just a functional small gun that isn't too cumbersome to carry around while you're snorkeling. My sons really enjoyed using it while we were snorkeling in the keys.
