Cressi Cherokee Fast Speargun Product Description 

 

 

The Cressi Cherokee Fast Speargun is the ultimate in spearguns not only in features but in the looks department too. This unique looking gun has a black sleek barrel with a red handle and red rubbers. It is a 28mm barrel that holds a 6.5mm double finned shaft with a single flopper. The Cherokee Fast comes standard with twin 14mm rubbers as it has a double muzzle, however if you choose you can swap those out for a single 16mm rubber or twin 16mm rubbers for extra power if you choose. The muzzle has a quick loading magnetic spear lock that holds the spear tip in place when re-rigging to prevent it slipping off the barrel. 

 

A great feature of the Cressi Cherokee Fast is the all metal trigger mechanism including the trigger and line release. Being all metal and no plastic means it will last alot longer and is more durable to the elements making it last much longer than plastic components. Make sure you give the entire gun including the mech a good wash after every use to remove all salt water and sand and never leave the spear in the mech when it is wet or unclean as this will rust and potentially get stuck. The trigger mech is also called a reverse trigger mech which means that it sits further back towards the loading butt so the rubber that you pull back to load has to come that little bit further to give more thrust when fired. Although it may only be an extra 8cm or so, this makes a hugh difference with the amount of power your actually get. 

 

The aluminium barrel has a rail running the length of the barrel for the 6.5mm spear to follow which helps with accuracy, however the gun is only as accurate as the user. The single flopper on the spear prevents fish that have been shot from coming off. Attaching the shaft to the gun is a monofiliment attaching to the gun bungee and these are made from a 10mm rubber and designed to give a bit of bounce when a fish takes off at speed with your spear. It will take pressure and strain off the gun and yourself, especially when the fish is larger with alot of power.

 

On the side of the handle is the safety catch that is a small lever that will hold the trigger in place so you can not fire it. Never trust the satefy catch 100% as you want to be safe so only load the gun once you are ready to shoot as a misfire could be deadly. The Cherokee Open is available in 3 lengths from 100cm - 120cm.

 

The general rule when purchasing a speargun and what length to get is determined on where you will use it. 90cm - 110cm are normally used in shallow reef diving as they are shorter and easier to maneuver in shallow water. 120cm - 140cm are 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. Here at Dive Warehouse we are loaded with information regarding spearfishing, gear and tips so feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What is the warranty?

 

Cressi Spearguns have a 2 year warranty on the handle, trigger mech and barrel.

 

Do I need a license to buy a speargun?

 

You do not need a license to purchase a speargun, however you may need a fishing license depending on which state you are in. In Queensland you do not need a fishing license.

 

How do I load my speargun?

 

The best place to load your spear gun is on your hip. Place the butt of the gun on your hip, lean over the gun to grab the rubber with palms facing upwards and pull with one swift movement towards you to hook the bridle on to the spear notch. If you can not reach the rubber (usually on 1.2m +) you will need to load the gun from your chest. Simply grab one side of the rubber with 1 hand whilst placing your other hand on the butt of the gun. As you start to pull the rubber towards you, push with the hand on the gun until you can slide the butt of the gun in to your chest and then grab the rubber with both hands and finish the load.

 

Where can I go spearfishing on the Gold Coast?

 

On the Gold Coast, you will need to stay out of all of the rivers and the broadwater. Stick to the headlands and ocean. There are fines if you get caught where you should not be and your gear can be confiscated. 

 

What length is best for me?

 

The best length of speargun for you depends on where you are spearfishing. If you are in shallow reef waters then a shorter gun from 50cm -110cm is perfect. If you are in deep open waters then 110cm - 140cm is perfect.

 

Which one is a beginner gun?

 

All of the spearguns work in a simular way. There is no such one as a beginner gun, its more about quailty and what you are prepared to spend for your first gun. The more you spend, the better the quality they will be.

 

Can I shoot the gun out of water?

 

No, this is dangerous and all spearguns are to be used in water only. 

 

What else do I need once I have my speargun?

 

Once you have purchased your speargun, you will need a knife to kill your catch, a float and flag to connect the gun to and your mask, snorkel and fins. These are the necessary items however there are many more things you can add on like a wetsuit, gloves, socks, stringer, flasher & more.
