7 Ways to Find the Best Speargun

If you are looking to buy your first or replace your current speargun then there are certain things that you will need to know. This knowledge will help you to make the best decision for your experience and aesthetic needs so that you end up with a speargun that suits you perfectly.

First of all you need to decide whether you want a band or pneumatic powered speargun. The pneumatic kind is usually more expensive and has more components so this is not always the right decision for a beginner or someone who has a limited income.

The band speargun is perfect for this and also for youngsters too because the amount of power the spear is shot at is dependent on the amount and strength of bands used, not the power of the user.

Secondly you should think about the type of thing you are going to use the speargun for. Some people use it for its original purpose and use it for fishing where as others prefer to use it for target practice.

For accuracy many people say that the pneumatic is the best. Because of the power and speed it can create there is a better chance of hitting your target, but with the power comes responsibility. This kind of gun needs to be checked regularly and problems using it in sea water if not rinsed properly can ruin the whole function.

If your upper arm strength is weak and you do not want to have to spend the time pumping it up to reload then this is less likely to be the gun for you. If you buy in store you should try holding the gun first to check it out for comfort as you are likely to spend some time underwater shooting, reloading and carrying it to your chosen location.

Try to purchase a gun that you know you are able to get hold of parts for easily or you could end up stuck with a gun you are no longer able to use once you have used up all the bands ( if that is the kind you choose) should it be discontinued for any reason.

Lastly if you are a newbie, take someone with you who knows what they are talking about. If you have joined a speargun club the people there will be happy to advise you as to which are best for you. Alternatively you could use the online forums and speak to others with more experience than yourself who will tell you the better and most cost efficient brands available.
