Perfect starter gun perfect all around

By aok

super easy to load, very lightweight and shoots amazing no recoil very accurate. definatly would recomend a friend.

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 stoning fish as it does looking good. Just pick one up and you'll know what we're 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. Laser cut 1/4" (6.35mm) stainless components ensure that it's the strongest trigger in the world.

The Woody 38 Special feature hardened 17-4 stainless steel JBL731SA shaft 31" (78.7 cm) long with a 5/16" (8 mm) diameter and two 9/16" cx 16" (14.3mm x 406mm) Hi-Mod JBL216 bands with 302 stainless wire wishbones. Gun is equipped with the JBL515 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 14' (4.27 meters). Guns overall length is 36" (91.5 cm).

Let's get right to the point, these tips are designed to punch through even the toughest fish, penetrating thick skin and hard bone. Constructed of hardened 17-4 stainless with a razor-sharp finish they'll make short work of just about any game fish. Low-profile, stainless wings are quickly deployed and angled to grab tight and hold on. Sliding wing retainer allows for easy removal of fish. JBL's patented (#4685239) rotating design allows for 360°-degree spin, providing greater holding power and minimizing the chance of your point unthreading from the shaft because of a fish "rolling" in battle. 2-5/8" (67mm) wing span designed to perform even after impact on rock and reef, the JBL843 is a durable workhorse. Each point is designed for low maintenance, dependability and most important results. The gun has positive buoyancy.

Spear gun

By Joe P.

Great gun great feel only thing is my first fish I shot it didn't even go through .... I don't know if I hit the spine just right where it didn't penetrate the fish (small grouper) ... It killed on contact ... Fish didn't even flinch musta broke it's back so the gun worked well just it dint fly through the fish like I imagined :(


Great gun but small

By Hogkiller17

Great gun shoots well reload is easy good gun if you aren't going to be going deeper than 20 feet. The gun isnt really a 38 its more like a 36 i was kind of disappointed about that but its not a bad little gun.


Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  What bands would make this gun stronger?
Michael C  In order to make this gun stronger you would need bands that are either shorter or thicker than what you have right now. The slings that come with this gun are 9/16in x 16in. So either get something thicker like a 5/8in sling, or you could get a shorter band, like a 14in sling. http://www.leisurepro.com/Catalog.aspx?op=gcsSearch&Term=sling#!1
Shopper  Does this gun penetrate well? Can this gun go through a grouper grouper? If not than what small gun can?
JACOB B  I got a through and through shot on an 18lbs grouper in a hole at a distance of 3 feet from the end of the gun. Also got a good shot through a trigger fish. They have tough hides. There is good penetration power in the range of the cord that comes with this gun. If you are going to add a longer cord I would recommend adding a spear with a second notch and another band. Or just learn to stalk your prey better.
MOISES S  My son shot about four grouper last summer, its a good gun.
CORY H  Given my experience with this gun i would recommend purchasing a sharper speartip. Its a great small reef gun for hogs and snapper but i would only plan on hitting the smallest of grouper. Easy reload. Great size. Accurate.
KRISTAN S  Haven't used the gun yet!
ARISTOTELES S  Well, depends on the grouper's size. This gun works pretty well for small medium size fish (15-30 inches) but for larger fish it may disappoint you. I've killed 6-7 pounds snappers at relatively close range with it, but a 10 pounds barracuda laughed at me when I shoot it, the shaft just didn't get through. For large fish I prefer pneumatic guns.
ADRIAN R  Ive seen people lad gruper with it. Ive missed a pretty large grouper and very large mutton because of penetration. If you upgrade the bands you should be fine. If not go with a riffe euro 90 or a cressi comanche 90. I prefer woods guns but the railguns get the job done aswell. Good luck!
ERIC D  i have never had a problem with it penetrating anything ive shot at
CORY H  Can this gun use 3 bands / use a shaft with 3 teeth?
JACOB B  If you get a 3 tooth shaft and extra bands, yes. You may also want to get a longer shaft retention cord and/or a reel.
JAMES G  TAKE THAT BACK- Please ignore my prior comment, I got this confused with my Omer, this shaft only has two teeth/fins. Only supports two bands. Sorry!!!
JAMES G  The shaft does have 3 teeth/fins to support three bands, but on the end, it only has ports for two bands. Not sure how to insert a 3rd, I dont think you can.
ERIC D  the band slot on this gun is big enough for three bands if you can a short enough shaft. the shock cords are interchangeable so if you put three bands on it you could increase range. i was going to make mine a three band gun but couldnt find a shaft that was short and had three slots.
ROBERT B  Not necessary to use three bands, packs a good punch with 2 . 3 bands too much for smaller gun
CORY H  I already own the gun but It has been deflected by some small hogs and snappers. I was wondering if there was a way to prevent that in the future..
CHRISTOPHER D  Never tried it but I think that there is enough room to fit three bands on this gun.
