Hunting has always been a hobby of mine. Although this is not my daytime job, it has started to be a part of my life. I love the idea of getting and hunting for my own food. When I go and do my fishing, I only want to equip myself with the best speargun available. This is the only tool that I bring when I fish and I would not have want to fail at spear fishing because the tool that I am using is substandard. Fortunately, a lot of high quality spearguns are available!
Cressi Comanche Speargun
At the top of the pack is the Cressi Comanche Speargun. First of all, the feel of this speargun is very solid. I like that this speargun is lightweight, probably because the tubes are made of aluminum and the body is made of thermoplastic. Aluminum is a metal that is commonly used in spearguns because it can be shaped into any object and it has one of the greatest features for any product, that is, aluminum is rust-proof. The Cressi Comanche Speargun body is made of high quality thermoplastics that are very durable. It also guarantees comfort because of this lightweight material. Thermoplastics also are non-deformable. The style of this speargun has an angled hand grip for better and easy handling. It is just like holding an ordinary gun.

Your target will never get out because of this feature. The muzzle of this speargun also has allowance for a second band. The point of this speargun is also very compact. It will help you see the target without visual difficulties. The bands included are quick and highly reactive.
Cressi Apache Spear Gun
The second product on our list is still a speargun from Cressi. It is the Cressi Apache Speargun. It is one of the best selling spearguns from the same brand. I like the name of this speargun, if I may say so. Apache instantly reminds me of the helicopters used by the brave men of this country. I feel like I am also going to war with this awesome speargun. But I think it also refers to the Apache tribes of the old era.
The Cressi Apache Speargun is an entry level speargun which you can use if you are just a beginner in speargun fishing. This product is best for catching small fish. For experts, the Apache Speargun is a great secondary gun for hunting big fish. Think of it as a sidearm for fishing. You can use this speargun when fishing in holes, which are very prominent when fishing on ice, and when you are around rocks. Since this is a compact speargun, it is designed for close proximity hunting and fishing. The barrel for the Apache Speargun has a closed muzzle which allows the speargun to be loaded easily .

The overall length of the speargun is 45 centimeters. If you like going directly on top of the water and you are wondering if this speargun floats in any way possible, according to personal experiences, it does not. This is also a beginner’s speargun because of its small frame. This speargun is good for shallow waters only. Overall, the speargun is well-built and very sturdy.

This speargun is part of the JBL Carbine Series. The D5 Speargun has a competitive price but with the price, is a very powerful tool for spear fishing. The pistol grip handle makes it easy for you to catch the fish. If you are wondering if you can attach a reel to this speargun, the answer is not. The product includes one spear for the gun.
From my experience, spear fishing using this spear gun is surprisingly good. I caught a fish fairly easy when I used the spear gun. The length is great for its size. For the rubber band, it feels that the band is strong and powerful. It really held up rather nicely. If you buy this product, be sure to make money allowances for modifications and additional accessories for this speargun.
AB Biller Wood Mahogany Special Speargun
First of all, I like the mahogany body of the AB Biller Special Speargun. When high-class wood is incorporated in a tool, it will automatically look good and feel good. The AB Biller Wood Mahogany Special Speargun definitely looks good. The finished body of the spear gun is sturdy and durable. The shine of the mahogany body is due to the three coats of polyurethane. The shaft, on the other hand , is made of stainless steel. You will never go wrong with stainless steel because this metal is of high quality and is very resistant to rust and dirt.

For those who do not know, Geronimo was once a leader of a tribe. He has fought many military armies from the US and Mexico.
If you will look at the price range, it is definitely not a beginner’s speargun. But the price of the speargun also will tell you that you are buying such an elite specimen.

One of the hobbies that I grew very fond of is spear fishing. I can honestly say that I am no expert, but I sure enjoy it. Before, spear fishers are done by those people who earn a living off it. Spear fishing is the only fishing they know. Spear fishing is used because there is no other way of catching fish than using spear. Old times would say that a spear is great in catching fish, but you would need training to catch at least one fish. You also need to have the arm strength and dexterity to catch a fish.
Fortunately, spearguns are invented! You don’t need to have arm power to throw the spear. But you still do need training in using spearguns. Dexterity in spear fishing is something that you acquire after much use. In my honest opinion, you need to have a personal speargun if you want to learn how to spear fish. You need constant practice in order to be proficient in holding and shooting a speargun. You also need to memorize your grip and the only way to do that is having your own speargun. For beginners, you have a choice of spearguns that make it easy for you to carry and shoot. For intermediate to professional shooters, you also have elite spearguns that will provide your every need. But all of these comes with a price. Beginner spearguns costs less but some are made from less sturdy materials. Some beginner spearguns also do not have the features that professional spearguns have. On the other hand, professional spearguns provide line precision combined with a number of features only available to this level of spearguns. But they cost a lot more.
