What a great idea...

I've always thought a lot of dive gear cost too much, especially spearfishing gear. Let's take the humble spear head or tip as an example...
... It's your basic double barb spearpoint and this one will set you back nearly $40 (do I hear an ouch?). Now archery is a much bigger sport than spearfishing so how does does an arrow head compare?
Kinda looks about right does it not? Even better, they come in packs of THREE for less than $15...

The only problem is that arrow heads and spear tips use different size screw standards... Bummer!

Well as it happens some guys over at Poseidon Spears are making just the thing to allow us spearfishers to use archery hunting and bow-fishing arrowheads.


A really simple thread adapter in stainless for $15...


Now how cool is that?

I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a couple of these as well as giving the new Poseidon Pole Spear a try in a blue water situation as it just seems to say Mahi Mahi to me...

Hi there,
I discovered your blogs through Bob's Small Boat Projects blog. Really enjoying the variety. I'm looking forweard to the $175 dinghy build. Been there, done that, doing it again.
