If you want to shoot big fish you need a reel. A large fish can pull your spear gun right out of your hand when it gets shot. The fish will begin to sound and when it does the fishes strength can take you for a ride. If you are not on Scuba this could become a problem very fast without a reel. The Salvimar Voodoo Mini Horizontal Reel sits streamline under your spear gun for better hydrodynamics than a vertical reel. The reel components are made of corrosion resistant stainless steel and impact resistant Delrin. Reel is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.
