Do I also need to purchase a tip for the spear?
Hello Todd, you would need to order the 7mm thread tip and any one from: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-251-1-30/Spearguns-Speargun-Hunting-Accessories.html?sort=price_asc would work for you.
I am going to Costa Rica and will be doing some shore diving. Will this be the right gun?? I need fly it down with me, so any recommendations on how that is best done?
Do you like the woody better that the lightning series from JBL. What are the differences in power between these two options?
One more question. How do you pack the Woody 38 special, and how is its speed. It is multi band is it not? What else should I buy ( extra bands, etc )? How about a bag for fish I harvest?
Hello Mike, the total length is 42 inches so you would need to get a bag for this gun if it does not fit in your checked luggage. As for how fast the shaft travels you would need to contact the manufacture of that spec. This gun has 2 bands. Then yes you would need some type of stringer to put your fish on or a game bag for the fish.
What should I buy? The lightning or the woody 38 special? Aaron, what is better to travel with and what is faster. If you had one to bring which would it be.
How does this compare to a AB Biller Brand? Specifically my AB 32 Special Mahogany? Also, how much more power would I gain going from 32 to 38 - is there a spec that quantifies this?
Hello Charlie, since the gun you are looking to up-grade to is a larger gun in both the shaft length and overall length so you will be able shoot bigger fish and whit the way the gun is designed over your current gun the shaft with the shake fins will help make it a more accurate gun and quieter gun when you shoot it. So you will be able to shoot bigger fish from farther away with better accuracy.
Whats the difference of woody 38 spearguns -6w38e or 6w38 ??? Two things picture is same in this site. And one more Q. How much is the tax of the gun?? Can i receive the benefit of FTA=free tax?
Just got one for my birthday. I live in North County San Diego. Im excited but dont know anything about freediving/spearfishing. Any tips on how/where to get started?
What is the difference between the JBL Elite woody 38 Special (6W38E) and the JBL 38 Special Magnum (6W38)? And would you recommend one over the other? Thanks very much.
