Your spear fishing mask is an important part of your kit as it is essentially your eyes underwater! Low volume masks are great for spearfishing as they require less air to be used to equalise the mask at a depth, therefore saving vital oxygen.
Before using a new dive mask you will need to get rid of the factory seal used to protect the mask while it is on the shelf. Rub baby shampoo into the lens and skirt of your spearfishing mask, leave for three minutes, then wash off with warm (not hot) clean water. Repeat this process three times to ensure that your new spearfishing mask does not fog up too much on its first use.
Did you ever wonder why all the good spear fishermen wear only dark skirt masks? Clear silicone skirts can create reflections on the inside of the lenses from surface light distracting the hunter's focus on the prey. Real underwater hunters always wear Black.
