Product Description

 

The Rob Allen Scorpia Rail Gun is a get choice for a diver who wants an amazing brand that is great quality, at an affordable price. The Rob Allen Scorpia's barrel is made from aircraft grade aluminum with a super thin yet strong wall. It performs at its best on small to medium sized fish, however will still perform when confronted with larger fish. The Vector handle and mechanism is of top quality and will last the time with care. The muzzle on the Rob Allen Scorpia is a closed muzzle and comes with a single 16mm rubber. You can in fact upgrade to an 18mm or 20mm rubber to give you more power. The 7mm spring steel shaft is engineered from a ultra tough oil quenched carbon alloy. The Scorpia is available in lengths 90cm, 100cm and 110cm. This particular gun is designed for shallow reef diving where it can be maneuvered quickly and quietly which is why the lngth only goes up to 110cm. When you are in shallow reef areas, you really dont want a long gun as it will have too much range so the Scorpia is perfect choice for around rock walls and reefs. The "Rail" in rail gun, means that there is a carved out rail down the length of the barrel where the spear sits which allows the spear to be guided out when shot making it more accurate. Dont be fooled though, your gun is only as accurate as you are!!! 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. Only load your gun when you are ready to shoot, do not load, flick the safety on and then get ready, if the safety catch fails, it could be potentially very dangerous. Only load the gun once you are ready to shoot. They call Rob Allens the original railgun, not because it was the first speargun with a rail, but because it was the Rob Allen range that made full barrel length rail systems on spearguns, the popular choice they are today.

 

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.
