This is a 44” reef speargun. This one is my favorite. It’s made of laminated Purple Heart with a tiger maple stripe. I love using PH because it’s neutrally buoyant with the shaft out. It’s powered with two 1/2” bands. It’s an enclosed shaft giving great accuracy. This ones gotten me lots of hog a trigger fish! More spearguns to come! Thanks for looking!

I get the parts from Neptonics in Cali. There’s an AR handle out there that I like better. If I find the web page I’ll let you know. Can’t wait to see the pics!!

I have a few old JBL’s i can use for parts great guns but I would like to convert from the aluminum to wood
. im a big fan of my old AB billard 20+ years and still on its mark .. it could use a new finish tho..

I found that teak and mahogany need weight added to them but they both do well in the water. I protect any of them with west systems. Not sure about converting other parts. I’ve never tried it. The enclosed track is awesome for accuracy but you need a special router bit that Neptonics also sells. I ended up special ordering one with a half inch shaft. JBL also has a nice new handle out with an easy safety.

I use the reef. It’s plenty for what I do.
