Rob Allen GT Carbon Roller Speargun Product Description - Due October

 

The Rob Allen GT Carbon Roller gun is in a league of its own with being made from top quality materials and giving you the ability to hunt larger pelajic fish with ease. The carbon wrapped barrel is strong, durable yet lightweight which makes this partucular gun a stand out giving plenty of power to catch large pelagic fish. If being carbon wasn't enough, each gun has been individually air brushed for the ultimate camouflage look. It is a rail gun which means that there is a rail running the length of the barrel where the spear sits in. When fired, the rail guides 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 only as accurate as the user. Coming with a 7.5mm shaft with a single flopper that is engineered from a ultra tough spring steel that allows you to penetrate the largest of fish and connecting the spear to the gun is a monofilament that is rated to 180kg and this is connected to the 10mm gun bungee that sits under the barrel near the handle. Holding the mono tight against the gun when loaded is the stainless steel line release which drops the mono when the trigger is pulled to free the line. The single flopper is an extra piece of steel that loosly sits at the tip of the spear and is what holds the fish securly on the spear once it has penetrated through the fish. The flopper opens so the fish can not slide off. 

 

The GT Carbon Roller comes equipped with 16mm rubbers which is perfect for blue water hunting, however if you want to change them you can simply purchase an 18mm or 20 mm single rubber. These are harder to load as they are thicker and have less flex, yet give alot of power. Just remember, loading a speargun is not about strength it is about technique. The roller gun design allows you to get maximum power on a shorter gun. The 16mm rubber is hooked on to the barrel near the handle then is stretched up over the muzzle and then pulled back down the barrel on the top to the notches on the shaft. This means that the rubber is stretched 2 lengths on the barrel giving the ultimate in power. 

 

The bridle that is part of the rubber is made from a durable dyneema that is hooked in to either notch on the top of the spear for loading. This is what holds pulls the spear out of the mechanism when the gun is fired and the rubber is what gives the power. There is a gun bungee that is a shock absorber which sits underneath the barrel and is connected to the muzzle at one end and the mono at the other end. 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.

 

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. You should only load your gun when you are ready to shoot so do not load it, flick the safety on and then get ready as if the safety catch fails it could be potentially very dangerous. The Rob Allen GT Carbon Roller is available in 2 sizes from 100cm to 110cm. 

 

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. Here at Dive Warehouse we are loading 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?

 

Rob Allen Spearguns have a life time 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 me 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.
