Spearfishing is a sport than goes way back into time and has gained attention from individuals who wish to get their own gun and try out the exciting art for themselves. A question that is commonly asked about Spearfishing is equipment and specifically the type of gun that should be used for a beginner. One often also asks the question of what type of gun is the best for spearfishing.
The answer to both of these questions is that there is no real answer, however there are different guns that are designed for different environments. The aim of Spearfishing is essentially to catch the most fish in the shortest amount of time. The Omer Caymen GI is often recommended for beginners and for situations where there is low light. Those who are keen on Spearfishing often recommend this gun, mainly due to the fact that it is solid and affordable. This model is recommended between lengths of 50cm to 75 cm.
In some locations the visibility will be better, thanks to a clearer area of water that one may be Spearfishing in. In this case the Omer Kanaloa may be a better solution. This Speargun is more accurate than the Caymen Gi and is designed to catch fish that may be more aware of their surroundings, thanks to the clearer water that they are swimming in. This Speargun was designed in Hawaii, due to the clear conditions of the undersea environments in the area.
Pneumatic Spearguns are also available and are designed for those who want a more powerful type of gun than the band deigned models that have been mentioned so far. The Omer Airbalete is a Speargun designed for the more advanced forms of Spearfishing, due to its high cost and good level of power. This model comes in a range of lengths, from 70cm all the way unto 110 cm, however users that are new to this Speargun should probably aim for the shorter sizes of 70 cm to 90cm.
The Omer Airbalete is certainly a good Speargun and will suit both low visibility areas of water, as well as the clearer areas. The gun is also very powerful and has an accurate shot. It is however more expensive than other models of Speargun that are currently available on the market and may not be affordable to everyone. However, Those who are serious about the art of Spearfishing should definitely consider this model.
