Crowdfunding Campaign Launched For New Octopus Pulling System

Ever been spearfishing deep under the surface, stoned a big, honking tuna and had your forearms burn from pulling your catch back up to the surface? Well, Swiss Freediver Pascal Berger might have a solution to that.

Berger — who previously developed a Noseclip and Lanyard — is introducing via the Indiegogo crowdfunding site a new product under his Octopus brand: the Octopus Pulling System.

The Pulling System, which attaches below your freediving or spearfishing buoy, sports a strong structure made up of polyamide charged with 20 percent fiberglass, an 8mm (.31-inch) anodized aluminum arm, two low-friction polyamide pulleys for ropes 8mm to 12mm (.47-inches) thick, and marine stainless-steel screws.

A single pulley costs €33/~US$38, and if fully funded will be available in red, blue and black.

(BIG NOTE: Remember, this is a crowdfunding campaign so you are helping to fund development of a project, not a finished product. Please make sure you research the project before spending any money.)
