Spearfishing Shafts and Points


Speargun Shafts: Spearfishing shafts come in a variety of lengths, sizes and styles to match your gun, target and style. Longer shafts match your barrel length and wider diameter shafts carry more weight and hit harder. Shafts have two common styles with either a fixed Tahitian point or a threaded tip to fit different heads to. Different metals act differently in the water with some being more flexible and corrosion resistant and others that are less likely to bend.

It's important to fit your speargun with the correct spear shaft. The thicker your spear shaft is, the more power it will have pushing through objects. Therefore, if you are hunting big pelagic fish you will want a thick speargun shaft, such as an 8 mm shaft.

It's important to remember that thicker shafts, if used around the reef or rocks, will hit the reef or rocks with more impact and could therefore become damaged or bent. If you are just starting out a 6.5 mm or 7 mm speargun shaft is ideal and will provide plenty of punch while still surviving accidental contact with rocks or reef.

When ordering, please remember, the listed sizes are the length of shaft you are ordering, not the measurement of the gun it is intended to fit. Please ensure you measure your existing shaft and re-order that size.

Spear Heads: Spearheads come in all different shapes and sizes depending on what and where you are hunting. Simple Tahitian shafts are faster and more accurate but can pass straight through some targets when you may need to hit the fish with more energy to dispatch it properly. Multi-point and heavier heads give you more chance of hitting your target across one axis and can transfer all of the energy of the shot quickly to dispatch the fish.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
