Sal Vimar Chameleon Speargun Product Description


The Sal Vimar Chameleon Speargun is the ideal gun for beginners or intermediate divers who want a quality gun but is on a budget. The Chameleon gun is a sleek black and lime gun with a 16mm single rubber with dyneema bridle. 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 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 a lot of power. Sitting in the rail is a 7mm shaft that is double finned for the bridle to hook on to. Attaching the spear to the gun bungee is a monofilament line. 

 

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 relied 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 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 manoeuvre 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 lose 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

 

What is the warranty?

 

Sal Vimar Spearguns have a 12month 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 similar way. There is no such one as a beginner gun, its more about quality and what you are prepared to spend for your first gun. The more you spend, the better the quality they will be.
