Mares Essence, Razor Pro and Viper Pro Pack

 

The Mares Essence, Razor Pro and Viper Pro Pack is a spearfishing starter pack that can be used for both new divers and advanced spearfishermen. Purchasing a pack always gives you a better deal on price and this pack is no exception. It contains the Mares Essence mask, Pro flex snorkel, Razor pro fins and the Viper Pro speargun. 

 

The Mares Essence mask is a all rounder mask, if you are scuba diving, it has great vision due to the single lens design, if you are spearfishing, it is very low volume. Where the silicone and glass come together and blend, it creates this mask that is truly one of a kind. Light weight and foldable at the buckles prevents this mask from cracking where any dives masks do. With a single glass piece, this mask is a popular pick due to having maximum vision. It comes in Black or Green or White (for scuba). The black silicone is generally used by spearfishermen however many divers do like the black silicone, it really is a personal preference. Being low volume means that there is less air inside the mask when being worn. When heading underwater, you need to equalize, this means you need to equalize the air inside your mask to prevent for mask squeeze. When on scuba diving, this is easier as we have spare air to use from our tanks, however when spearfishing, you are on breathe hold so you need less air in your mask so you don't use up too much breathe equalizing. This is why the spearfishing masks are low volume. Getting the perfect fitted mask is something that ideally needs to be done in store, however we do realize here at Dive Warehouse that it can not always be done. If you have any questions or concerns on this mask feel free to contact us and we will answer any questions.

 

How to look after your mask:  All of our masks here at Dive Warehouse are made from 100% silicone with tempered glass. When a mask is made, it gets a thin layer of silicone on the inside of the glass. This is what causes it to fog. Anti-fog's will not work until it has been pre-cleaned, as to work it needs to reach the glass and with the silicone layer covering this, it cant work. To remove this layer of silicone, you will need to purchase a pre-cleaner or you can use toothpaste. These products have a slight abrasive in it and will scrub off that silicone layer. A blob of paste on to each lenses on the inside only, give it a good scrub and rinse off with fresh water. Repeat this process 3 times to ensure you have scrubbed off all of the silicone layer, then you can anti-fog. The glass will not get scratched as it is tempered. You can purchase a good quality anti-fog here at Dive Warehouse, or you can spit or lick the inside of the lens as spit is a natural anti-fog! After you have cleaned your mask and are no longer fogging, you will need to wash your gear after every use to prevent it from perishing. The best way to clean you mask and snorkel is to put them in a tub of fresh warm water and give them a good rinse. this will take off all of the salt and sand that you get from the ocean. Store them away in a dark dry place to prevent the silicone from turning an off color. The sun will do this if you store them in direct sunlight.

 

The Mares Pro Flex Snorkel is a specific spearfishing snorkel that is ultra flexible and highly dymanic in the water. The mouthpiece is made from 100% silicone and the barrel is a soft PU which gives ample flex when required underwater. The wide snorkel opening offers excellent ease of breathing so you will never feel short of breath. It comes with a sliding snorkel keeper that you use to connect it to your mask of choice. When spearfishing, it is preferred to not have a purge valve on the snorkel to prevent drag, this is why the Mares Flex snorkel is perfect for spearfishing.

 

The Mares Razor Pro Fin is a incredibly comfortable fin to wear and use. The variable-thickness blade bends during the various phases of finning action, giving smooth blade bending action. The special design of the channels on the blade and the lateral stringers on the foot pocket make it possible to channel and increase the flow of water toward the pronounced “V” at the tip, increasing thrust and preventing the fin from slipping laterally. Its light weight and power give the Razor Pro the best name on the market today. The foot pockets are made from a soft rubber allowing you to be comfortable in the water even after hours of use. Due to being on breath hold, spearfishing and freedivers need all the power they can get to allow them go deeper quicker without using up too much air and effort. Imagine if you were using a short blade fin, you would be kicking twice as often and using up twice as much air and effort.

 

Many divers will choose to wear a neoprene sock inside of the fin. There are a few reasons for this, first is to prevent any rubbing or blisters that could possibly occur. Second is for warmth, after being in the water for a couple of hours, you will start to get cold, its inevitable, the neoprene socks will prevent this so you can enjoy your diving for longer. Last but not least is for protection, when walking from your car to the water entry point, many divers go off of rocks and to walk over these bare foot can be dangerous. A neoprene sock with grip will prevent you from slipping or getting cut.

 

The Mares Viper Pro Speargun is a top quality product with all of the features that you would want to have on your gun. It comes with twin 16mm rubbers to give you the maximum amount of power that is needed when hunting larger species and has a strong 7mm spring steel shaft. The 28mm aluminium barrel is light weight yet strong and allows the gun to stay neutrally bouyance when in the water with the spear in it. It has an open muzzel design and with the "V" cut out of the handle on top, this allows you to look directly down the barrel to the tip of the spear with a clear line of sight and without any thing obstructing the shot giving you the best chance of acuracy. A very cool feature of the Mares Viper Pro is the reversed position stainless steel mechanism which give you a further distance to pull the rubbers back to the last notch on the shaft giving you more power than other guns. You can adjust the sensitivity of the trigger also which can allow the distance between the handle and the trigger to be customised to suit your hand. Coming with a gun bungee not only on the spear gun but also on the bottom of the hangle to connect your float line to, this gun also comes with a loading butt to make loading more comfortable and a stainless steel line release. Available in 3 lengths.

 

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.
