Riffe Euro Speargun Product Description

 

The Riffe Euro Speargun is made from a laminated teak made up from five vertical laminated teak strips to create a strong and durable gun that is suitable for not only an entry level diver but all the way to an experience spero who is hunting large pelajic fish. It has a open track with a rail which gives a perfectly straight and accurate shot each and every time with the shaft held in place by the monofiliment. The open muzzle allows a clear shot down the shaft with no plastic covers distracting you. The Riffe Euro gun is one of their most popular styles of wooden guns that Riffe make and this is due to the top quality and performance factors that the Euro series have. It comes with twin 16mm amber rubbers that have dyneema bridles which sit comfortable in the finned shaft when loaded. The all metal trigger mechanism is durable and allows for extra strength and hold when loaded also, along with a metal line release that hold the line out of the way when loading. 

 

The Riffe Euro guns have a 10mm rubber gun bungee situated on the bottom of the barrel just under the muzzle and this works as a shock absorbed when the fish takes off after it has beend shot. The bungee takes alot of tension off the gun, line and youself, especially if its a larger fish with a powerful kick. The handle is a hard wearing plastic grip that is comfortable to hold and the small loading butt makes it easier to load on your hip or chest. 

 

The Riffe spearguns come from the USA so there may be some slight differences from there to Australia including the amber bands and the shaft with having tabs here instead of notches.

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 two 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 many 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

 

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.
