    Hello Dany, to get the correct measurements I would contact the manufacture. YOu can contact them at: 760-754-2727

  • John:

    Could someone please measure the pull weight of the power band of the JBL 38 Special XHD? Thank you.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Unfortunately we do not have the ability to offer that info. Information such as this would be something the manufacturer may be able to provide.

  • Tam:

    Hi. I have a few questions about this speargun. I need anyone who has used this speargun to give me some feedback .. 1, is this gun float ( I think it is) i believe it comes with the float chamber please confirm 2 Is this Speargun too loud when you shoot ? 3, would you pick this aluminum JBL 38 special XHD or you pick Elite Wood 38 special and why? I Thank you Tam

    Hello Tam, this gun does have a float chamber build into the gun so yes this will float. over a wood gun yes the metal is louder underwater when fired. I would rather have a wood gun over the metal gun.

  • John:

    Does anyone know what the approximate pull weight is on each power band for the JBL 38 XHD? It uses three 5/8" x 16" power bands. Thank you.

  • John:

    Hello, would this speargun be a good choice for defense against sharks in cold water? Thank you.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    No. No spear gun would be considered good for that use.

The XHD (Extra Heavy Duty) Speargun measures 35.75 feet without shaft and is made of thick aircraft-grade aluminum. It features a 5/16 foot hardened stainless steel shaft, a carbide reinforced trigger mechanism and an integrated float chamber.This speargun also has a Hi-Viz sight pin and three 16 ft x 5/8 ft oversized bands.

The XHD Speargun is the most popular choice for commercial and dedicated shooters. The three oversized bands and hardened tip have the force to shoot through almost any fish, including the 40 ft whale sharks that the Shark Research Institute have to radio tag. This speargun is most often used for close-to-shore and open water. It is accurate, fast, durable and has an amazing range.
