JBL Spearguns Developing New ‘Roller’ Pole Spear

- this past week got a chance to peek at a prototype pole spear JBL Spearguns is developing.

The 9-foot/2.74-meter-long spear has rollers on the back end. The new design will help extend the spearo’s range to 14 feet/4.27 meters. Due out next March, the new pole spear will retail for around US$400 (~362 Euros).

Don’t feel like waiting to get back to shore to rinse off the salt and grime from a day of spearfishing?

The company also unveiled its new, collapsible dive shower at this year’s DEMA Show in Orlando.

The new, 2.5-gallon/9.46-liter dive shower sports a purge valve on the back so you can’t over-inflate it, and retails for $88 (~80 Euros).

One more bit of news from JBL out of DEMA Show is that all of the company’s wooden guns can now take spear shafts from any other company.
