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

    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

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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.

38 Special XHD

XHD stands for Extra Heavy Duty and we mean it. Thicker alloy barrel, 5/16” hardened stainless shaft, trigger mechanisms are carbide tipped and all models are equipped with 5/8” Hi-Mod bands that feature stainless wire wishbones...
