I am asking this as a serious question! Have you ever fired a speargun out of the water???? If not, I would not advise it AT ALL!!!! It's not meant to do that and well, it can have some disastrous effects to anyone in the vicinity of it being fired!

Replace the bands and the blueberries ! Neither will be good for your health at that age

yes on a special occasion you need to pay a tad more attension. normally no I'd enter water then shot.


When I first started using this weapon I reliezed the black slings where to weak for me so I upgraded to the blues and liked the extra tension.

Planning to replace slings again w/ none blacks. How doeís this rubber look? https://www.amazon.com/Spearit-SPEAR...162&th=1&psc=1
?1.Iím thinking the bright green will attach fishs attension. Is this true or false?

Would prefer to keep the metal section wishbone that contacts the spear grooves however the few videos Iíve sean seam to skip reusing the metal and just use string.

?2.These metal pieces are held on w/ plastic rings are both ends of rubber stretched then simply slide ring over stretched tube? Just canít image holding onto the grinded down rubber u(unless holding it w/ needle nose pliers)If I canít reuse the rings can I just lace w/ string?

My first weapon abillgner was wooden.
?3.Doeís anyone here add floatation to there weapon?

Currently just have the orginal 15í shock line cord, I would love to add a reel for my weapon. Gun is JBL 41Ē shaft mini Magunm

?4.any suggestions is appreciated.STB

Canít believe Iím the first one pointing this out but, I gotta ask is your plan really to shoot the cobia from the boat? Seems like a great idea to shoot one and pull in a green cobia or shoot one and not pull it in...
would only shoot a obviously none green like a large momma. I would never shoot then measure.

dam that sounds painful because of you, think I'll keep the shooting underwater untill I get a bow or harpoon, just give me as many fish weapons as I can hold.

now I just have to have a reel.

After viewing a half dozen videos I’m starting to think the plastic rings holding the wishbone to rubber isn’t reusable. Is this true or false

Apparently I’ll be forced to lace the wishbone what type or cord are you Guy’s lacing w/.?

Plan on shooting large wahoo & cobia (I usalley just shoot flounder never attempted a extra large fish yet this is why I thought I needed a reel.
Holding off on the new reel plan to extend the cord w/ 10’ of 300LB mono.or possiably a coil cord.

Steve,
Kevlar constrictor cord is what you need, I’d say buy new bands for $15 though... and please post a video of shooting your Cobia or wahoo...

I thought the constrictor was just the name of the knot yes what you say makes sense now "Kevlar constrictor cord"
I could have ordered this alone w/ the sling rubber but don't see myself ever using 50'. for $13. heck the string cost more than 4' of sling rubber.$12. the installation people have #9 AT&T lacing cord it's very strong waxed string need to find out if it's waterproof.

I need to replace the rubber on the shockcord is this rubber also none replaceable?

thanks for advice STB

edit: decided to get a bow for on deck shooting.
