Freedivers Protege Elite Speargun Product Description

 

The Freedivers Protege Elite Speargun is an origional that has been around for many year and the reason that it has lasted this long is the fact that it is reliable, durable and a great buy. It holds a 16mm rubber with a dyneema bridle that sits in a double closed muzzle. The double muzzle allows you to add a second rubber on the gun if you want more power out of each shot. The single 16mm is ideal for starting out and shooting small to mid sized fish where if you are hunting larger pelajic fish, a second rubber is ideal. 

 

The shaft is 6.6mm in thickness and has 2 loading notches to suit double rubbers. The spear is attached to a monofilament line that is rated to 180kg and connects the the spear gun via the gun bungee. This is a 10mm rubber shck absorber that takes any pressure off the gun and yourself as well as the fish once it takes off. On the handle of the Protege Elite gun is a safety catch and line release that holds the mono line out of the way when loaded. 

 

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!

Care Instructions

 

  • Rinse with fresh water after every use to remove all sand and sea water
  • Keep rubbers in the freezer if not being used for long periods of time - this slows down the perishing process
  • Remove spear when cleaning and dry throughly before storing
  • Keep in a dry and safe place
  • Store in a speargun bag if possible
  • Do not load out of water
  • Do not rely on the safety catch

 

Extras:   When purchasing a speargun, there are a few extras that we recommend you purchase to complete your 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

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.
