Product Description

 

The Rob Allen Sparid Spearguns are made from high grade aluminum which makes this gun is a great choice as it is lightweight, extremely sturdy and packs plenty of power. It is a raill gun which means that there is a rail running the length of the barrel where the spear sits in. When fired, the rail guide the spear out smoothly and perfectly straight without any wobble. Keep in mind that even though the rail keeps the spear straight, the gun is onle as accurate as the user. Coming with a 7mm shaft with a single flopper  that is engineered from ultra tough spring steel that allows you to penetrate the largest of fish. It comes equipped with a double muzzle which means that it can hold 2 rubbers at one time to give maximum power. It does come standard with a single 16mm rubber however if you want more thrust you can simply purchase another one. If you do not want the hassel of loading 2 rubbers, you can remove the 16mm rubber and purchase an single 18mm or 20mm rubber which will equal the same amount of power as twin 16mm rubbers. These are harder to load as they are thicker and have less flex, however loading a speargun is not about strength, it is about technique. The bridles are made from a durable dyneema that are hooked in to either notch on the top of the spear for loading. Connecting the spear to the gun is a monofilament that is rated to 180kg and this is connected to the gun bungee that sits under the barrel near the handle. This bungee is exactly what it is called, a bungee that is a shock absorber. These are made from 10mm rubber and designed to give a bit of bounce when a fish takes off at speed with your spear. Holding the mono tight when loaded is the stainless steel line release which drops the mono when the trigger is pulled to free the line. There is a safety catch on the handle of the gun that sits just above the trigger mechanism, this is to be used carefully and not to be relyed on. Only load your gun when you are ready to shoot, do not load, flick the safety on and then get ready, if the safety catch fails, it could be potentially very dangerous. Only load the gun once you are ready to shoot. The Rob Allen Sparid is available in sizes 90cm, 100cm, 110cm,120cm and 130cm. They call Rob Allens the original railgun, not because it was the first speargun with a rail, but because it was the Rob Allen range that made full barrel length rail systems on spearguns, the popular choice they are today.

 

The general rule when purchasing a speargun and what length to get is determined on where you will use it. 90cm - 110cm and normally used in shallow reef diving as they are shorter and easier to maneuver in shallow water. 120cm - 140cm and normally used in open water aiming for the larger fish, this is due to them have a longer range which you need with bigger fish. This is a general rule though!

 

Extras:   When purchasing a speargun, there are a few extras that we recommend you purchase to complete you kit. A float rope and divers float are the 2 main extras. The rope is connected to the gun at handle and the other end of the rope is to be connected to the float, this will ensure you will not loose your gun by accidental dropping it, or having a fish steal it! (It does happen). A pair of gloves is another item that we recommend you purchase also. Once you have shot your fish, trying to grab it and finish the kill can be very difficult without gloves. Fish are not only slippery but also have made spikes and teeth. Gloves will prevent cuts and scratches as well as grip.
