Choice of spearguns depends greatly on your experience as an underwater hunter and, of course, what you want to catch. A beginner makes the best purchase by choosing a medium-sized speargun, as it is easier to handle in the water. Spearguns come in sizes ranging from 45 cm to 110 cm, and as a beginner, you should choose between 50 cm to 65 cm.
The use of spearguns for spearfishing is one of the most environmentally friendly and gentle ways of fishing. They are silent and do not release bubbles, making it easier to sneak up on the prey without being detected.
In general, the shorter the speargun, the easier it is to handle. In return, you get more power in your shots and can shoot farther if you choose a longer speargun.
But no matter which speargun you choose, like all other diving equipment, it needs to be maintained to function optimally. Usually, it's just a matter of rinsing it with fresh water after use.
The speargun is a hunting tool powered by either rubber bands or compressed air. There are also gas-powered spearguns, but these are not allowed in Denmark.
Pneumatic spearguns are pumped up with 20-40 pumps, and then you have air for many shots. They are easy to carry underwater, easy to handle, and the smaller models can even be held with one hand. Common to most pneumatic spearguns is that they can shoot relatively forcefully. However, on most models, there is an option to regulate the shooting power.
Band spearguns are highly suitable for all skill levels. Not only for beginners but also for the very experienced and demanding underwater hunters. The system itself is very simple, so you can repair and replace all parts yourself at a low cost. The system can tolerate sand everywhere, and you don't have to worry about emptying the cylinder of pressure before any air travel. And finally, there's also the price. Band spearguns are often cheaper than pneumatic spearguns. No matter which of the two types you choose, avoid switching between them. The way you aim and shoot is very different. And if you switch between the two, it will often be difficult to achieve stable accuracy. So EITHER rubber bands OR compressed air.
