Do your due diligence and do your research before making your selection, or you may just find yourself up a creek without a tip (that's the expression, right?). It’s a great read, as well. Don’t blame us when you can’t put it down.
Spear Tips and Speargun Points
Speargun tips and spear points are designed differently for the type of fish and environment you will be hunting. Choosing a spear point based on these factors can improve the success rate of your catches.
Hawaiian Flopper Spear Tip
This is a pencil shaped spear tip with a single barb. These are among the most common spear points, and are suitable for a wide array of different prey.
Double Barb Spinner Spear Tip
This spear tip has two barbs that open to prevent fish from tearing off your spear shaft. This spear tip spins freely from the shaft to keep your fish from unthreading your spear tip, and to reduce warping or bending that larger fish can inflict on your spear shaft.
Rockpoint Spear Point
This is a pencil shaped spear point that easily sharpens after dulling from contact with rocks. This spear point is best used for rocky ledges and holes on the reef.
Tri-cut Spear Point
The sharp edge on this spear tip penetrates through flesh and bone easily, and is ideal for targeting large fish.
Slip Tip Spear Point
Ideal for fleshy fish, these spear tips can be rigged to break away completely from the shaft to a float line. This rig system is useful for large, fast fish. Slip tips not only help prevent the spear tip from ripping out of soft flesh fish, but also reduce the force on your spear shaft to prevent damage. Slip Tip spear points do not have barbs attached.
Breakaway Spear Tip
Breakaway spear tips separate from the spear shaft, but are still connected by strong cable. This prevents large fish from damaging your equipment, and prevents tearing out. Breakaway spear tips can also separate completely from the spear shaft, and are attached to monofilament line that leads to a float line for bluewater spearing.
