Questions and Answers for JBL Elite Woody 38-Special.:


  • Matt:

    This gun good for open water or more for reef fish?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    This is more of a gun for around the reef or tighter confines. It's not large or powerful enough for open water shooting.

  • Jay:

    Can I add a 3rd band too my 38 special woody elite? its 42" from tip to butt.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The number of slots on the shaft determine the number of bands.

  • mike:

    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?

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Mike, JBL Elite Woody 38-Special would be a great gun to use. Its a good balance between a short and long gun.

  • Mike:

    Do you like the woody better that the lightning series from JBL. What are the differences in power between these two options?

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The woody series are fast, quiet, affordable and accurate. Lightning series is beefed up spear gun. Thicker gauge barrel. These guns are all about speed.

  • mike:

    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?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    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.

  • Mike:

    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.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Mike, for travel and ease I would suggest the woody 38. It made of wood so if it gets away from you will float to the surface where as the Lightning is made of metal and will sink.

  • hee:

    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?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Hee, the elite version is made out of a different type of wood. Made with beautiful mahogany that is more silent when firing

  • Doug:

    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.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Doug, if you are talking about the JBL Magnum 38-Special Speargun. The gun is a metal version of the Woody 38 special. So the wood gun would float and the metal gun will sink when in the water.
