When we decide to spend our hard-earned money on a product there are typically two choices to consider. Do I buy the most affordable product in the line to save a little money, or do I go for the best possible quality product to ensure that it will last a lifetime. It’s a classic question, and with so many gear choices in front of us as spearos it can be an infinitely difficult decision to make if you don’t have the decades of experience with the many product lines and to top it all ...

Spearfishing Knives: What’s The Big Deal? Of all the tools out there that a spearo requires a spearfishing knife is one that a lot of people raise an eyebrow at. Sometimes I find myself raising two eyebrows at the size of some general purpose diving knives that are available on the market. Don’t get me wrong, they are awesome and I am just as obsessed with cool knives as anyone and more than that, huge knives do have their places in the diving world. How they relate to spearfishing i...

There a ton of ideas surrounding freediving and what it takes to be a competent diver. Everything from yoga to trance like murmurs can be seen and heard from a boat deck when you around serious freedivers preparing for their dives.

Most divers that live on the coast or at least near one can have access to some really awesome dive shops that great people own. It is always nice to support the hometown divers anytime that you can.

Two words that, on their own sound pretty harsh become one to spearos and that’s the way we like them. But to many the word “speargun” sounds a little less assuming, and a whole lot more confusing. Many people have never touched or even laid eyes on a speargun except in some James Bond movie, so it is no wonder that if and when the inexperienced person comes into contact with one it seems much more like a toy or a novelty than something that could easily kill you. “Danger...
