The UItimate Cressi Spearfishing Package Product Description

 

The Ultimate Cressi Spearfishing Package is a pack that we have put together here at Dive Warehouse that includes all of the gear that you need to get started. It includes a mask, snorkel, fins and speargun. Wetsuit, gloves, socks, weight belt, knife and bag as well as a float with line. Purchasing a spearfishing pack allows you to get everything you need to get started without having to think about it too much. We have put the pack together for spearfishing enthusiasts and below is a breakdown of each item that you will receive in this package including brand and information. 

 

The Mask

 

The Cressi Action Camera is a great allrounder mask that is made with 100% silicone skirt and tempered glass lens. It is a low volume mask which is perfect for freediving and spearfishing yet can still be work for diving and snorkelling as it is extremely soft and comfortable. The cool feature about the Action mask is the Go Pro mount situated on the front centre catching maximum footage at all times. It has a black silicone skirt that slightly tunnels your vision allowing your eyes to focus more on what you are looking at rather than being distracted through your peripherals. It has easy to adjust buckles that hold the comfortable silicone strap.

 

The Snorkel

 

The Cressi Corsica Snorkel is a spearfishing specific snorkel due to it being lightweight and streamline in the water. The mouthpiece is made from 100% silicone to give you maximum comfort and the barrel is a soft PU which can be folded up. 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 Cressi Corsica snorkel is perfect for spearfishing.

 

The Fins

 

The Cressi Gara Modular Fins are designed for spearfishing and freediving. The length of this particular fin is from 87cm - 95, depending on the size and the blade is a regular stiffness. This means that it is perfect for wearing all day long in the water diving and will not be too harsh on your legs. The foot pocket is an advanced design that has softer rubber on the sides to allow self-adjusting with wider feet. There is nothing worse than your fin foot pocket being too tight and giving you cramps. The Cressi Modular fin will prevent this from happening. The blades are inter changeable which means that you can swap them over, to upgrade or just replace the originals. Many freedivers will use carbon or fiberglass as they are gentler on your legs, however they are also more delicate so you need to be careful with them. Available in a wide range of sizes from 38-39 - 46-47.

 

The Speargun

 

The Cressi Yuma Speargun is a fantastic short gun that is perfect for shallow reef diving or around headlands to get small to mid-sized reef fish. It is available in 85cm and 95cm which are the perfect lengths for shallow waters as they are easy to manoeuvre and will not be too long for over shooting. The Yuma comes in an awesome blue camouflage colour that wraps the length of the 26mm barrel and looks so incredible sleek. 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. It comes with a 6mm spear that has a double notch and a single flopper which is what keeps the fish held on the spear after being shot. Connecting the shaft to the gun is a monofilament line that wraps around the plastic line release then doubles back to the open muzzle. An open muzzle is where the spear is held in place by the line which is tight so the spear is unable to move or rattle when in any current. The Yuma comes with a single 16mm rubber which is more than enough power to shoot mid-sized fish, however with a double muzzle, it can in fact hold 2 16mm rubbers if you decided to add another. The rubber has a metal bridle with euro adaptor which is extremely strong and durable and fits in to one of the 2 notches.

 

The handle has a soft yet comfortable grip that sits on a slight angle which can increase the shots precision and has a loading butt on the back which helps with loading on your hip. Loading a short gun should always be done on your hip as this is the easiest way and the most comfortable. Loading on your chest gives you less pull and can also bruise your sternum. There is a safety lock on the handle of the speargun which can be used by a single hand, however we never recommend using this. Once the gun is loaded, it is loaded! Don’t ever load the gun, put the safety on and trust 100% on this as if it mis-fires, it can be deadly.

 

The Float

 

The Cressi Torpedo Float is a great buy as it is durable, covered by canvas with a inner bladder. Being inflatable, you can deflate it when not using it to store it away safely. The divers flag that it comes with is a world recognized flag to let boat owners know that you are in the water and to stay clear. Without a flag and float it can be very dangerous. The design of the Cressi Torpedo float allows it to be pulled along with a drag point on one end to increase glide over the water. A float is a important part of your spearfishing gear, this float will prevent you from losing your gun. When rigged correctly, rope will be attached to the bottom of the gun handle, and to the float. When you shoot that fish and run out of breath, you can let go of your gun, swim to the surface and catch your breath. Then find your float...find your gun. Imagine letting go of your gun by accident....its then gone and you will never find it. This is why you NEED a float.

 

The Knife

 

The Cressi Mac Torpedo 11 BE Knife is designed for spearfishing however can be used when scuba diving or snorkelling. It has an 11.5cm Stainless steel blade that has a very cool blue camouflage print which makes it stand out to the rest. The blade has a serrated edge on one side and a straight cutting edge on the other which gives you the best of both worlds. It is a sturdy blade that is durable yet still slimline enough to brain a fish with ease and has a flopper adjuster at the base of the blade. There is a metal hammer at the rear of the comfortable rubber handle and the total length of the knife is 23.5cm. The Mac Torpedo 11 BE knife is a low profile design and can be worn on the arm or leg, depending on which you prefer as it comes with leg straps and a wrist strap that can be worn when the knife is not in its sheath. 

 

The Wetsuit

 

The Cressi Tokugawa 3mm Wetsuit is a 1 piece suit that has a rear zip entry. The suit is a 3mm in thickness which is perfect for diving in warmer waters all year round whether it be north QLD or over in WA where the temperatures are warmer. The unique blue/green camouflage print on the Tokugawa is like a chameleon where it can be used in different environment to blend in to the surroundings due to the mixed colour print.

 

There are reinforced knee pads that extend down to the shins for extra protection and durability especially when kneeling on the ocean floor whilst waiting for your prey. The loading pad on the chest is the perfect padding for chest mount when using longer guns that cannot be loaded on the thigh and will prevent any discomfort or bruising. The Cressi Tokugawa 1 piece 3mm suit is made from a high stretch nylon material that is extremely comfortable to wear for long periods at a time and fits like a glove every time.

 

Being 3mm in thickness the Chameleon Core perfect for majority of the year however in winter a thin vest may be needed for extra warmth or a hood and gloves. The Chameleon Core 3 has a back zipper with Velcro closure, flat lock stitching and hard-wearing knee pads for extra strength when on the ocean floor. It also comes equipped with a loading pad on the chest which is designed to be used with longer spearguns where you can no longer load them on your thigh. The Chameleon is a steamer design which means it has long arms and long legs which will also prevent stingers and sunburn. 

 

The Socks

 

The Cressi Ultra Stretch Socks 2mm socks are the perfect item to have when snorkelling or spearfishing. They are a neoprene sock that are designed to be worn inside fins to prevent blisters or chaffing as well as giving warmth and protection when walking around when your fins are off. The grippy bottoms will prevent you from slipping when climbing down the rocks to get in to the water. They have a ankle seal and are perfect for filling out a fin if you are a 1/2 size off.

 

The Gloves

 

The Cressi Spider Glove is a 2mm diving glove that is perfect for scuba diving and Spearfishing. This super stretchy neoprene allows extreme comfort as it moulds to your hand "like a glove" fitting sizes XS - XXL. The Spider Glove has extra grip on the entire glove which helps when diving and having to hold on to mooring lines or rocks when the current is strong. When spearfishing, holding on to fish once they have been shot can be slippery sometimes, so the Cressi Spider glove is a great pick because of the nonslip grip. Gloves are an important item to have when in the water, especially in winter. You lose heat from your hands so keeping them covered will keep you warmer for longer. They will also prevent cuts and scratches.

 

The Weight Belt - Black

 

The cressi rubber weight belt is specifically designed for spearfishing or freediving as it is made from a top quality rubber and grips to your wetsuit which prevents it from moving when diving down. The quick release stainless steel buckle is strong and durable and extremely important as having a buckle that can be release easily is a must for those emergency moments when you need to drop your weight. With only needing to use 1 hand, you can remove the belt in a split second.

 

When spearfishing or freediving we need weights to help us get down under the 5 meter buoyancy level. The weights will be heavy enough to get us below that mark, yet not too heavy for us to swim back to the surface. All divers weight different amounts, so everyone will have different amounts of weight and this is calculated roughly with a simple calculation. The general rule is to use 5% of your body weight as long as you are wearing a 3mm wetsuit. If you are not wearing a wetsuit, you will only need 2.5% approx. This is a general guide and can vary from diver to diver. Weight is not included.

 

The Bag

 

The Cressi Apnea XL Bag has been designed for spearfishing gear as it is long enough to fit spearfishing fins in to, however can be used for any Watersports equipment. It is made from a heavy duty 840 denier nylon which is extremely strong and durable. It has one large main compartment and 2 separate side pouches that extend the entire length of the bag to keep your fins separate. Inside one of the side pockets is a smaller zip up pouch for documents and small objects. The Cressi Apnea XL bag has 2 strong carry handles with an adjustable shoulder strap and the zips are made from heavy duty YKK. A dive bag is an important part of your equipment as this is what will keep everything together and prevent losing items.

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 cannot 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.

 

Can I shoot the gun out of water?

 

No, this is dangerous and all spearguns are to be used in water only. 

 

How do I stop the mask from fogging up?

 

Check out our how to prevent a mask from fogging blog. 

 

How do I clean the gear?

 

After every use, give everything a through clean in fresh water to remove all salt, sand or chlorine. The better the clean, the longer the set will last. Store it away once dry somewhere dry and out of the elements including the sun.
