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.

Does this gun penetrate well? Can this gun go through a grouper grouper? If not than what small gun can?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Can this gun use 3 bands / use a shaft with 3 teeth?
CORY H on Dec 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
What bands would make this gun stronger?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.

can this gun hold 2 3/4.in bands and is shock line included?
A shopper on Feb 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The manufacturer recommends 9/16" but you can most likely to 3/4" ok. Yes shockline is included.
