27", 29" or 33"
« on: March 17, 2015, 09:31:05 PM »
Hey All,

I was hoping to get some advice from some of the more experienced divers on this forum. I recently bough a ~90cm Cressi speargun, but I quickly learned that this speargun would be more suitable for open water species. Right now, I am focused on hunting the Northern California coast for rock fish and ling cod. I was told that my current set up is a bit long for spearing fish in holes and cracks, so I am looking at JBL or Riffe for an upgrade.

Brand aside, what length would be most appropriate as a universal set up for the Northern California coast line? Thanks in advance for your input!

If I could only have one it would be a 70-75cm. Maybe 30" American. Ideally you would want a 55-60cm and a 75-80cm. Always bring a back up gun.

In case one malfunctions, and in case you need to put a second shot in a holed-up fish.

I use a 31, 33 or 36  midhandle for the north coast. The 33 gets the most action and it shoots a 36" shaft.

I'd agree with Adam he's point on, although I shoot a smaller gun just due to my personal preference

Exactly.

I hunt with two 70's and am completely satisfied on the rugged North Coast.
