shafts

All Totemsub band powered spearguns are rigged with pinned shafts. The diameters are 6,25mm, 6,5mm, 7mm and 7,5mm. They are made in Sandvik stainless steel, 48hcr. A metal cone placed before the barb pin makes penetration in hard flesh or bones easier. The shafts are available with standard cone tip or tricuspid tip. The pins, instead of the traditional notches, make our shafts stronger. Also, the pins make it much easier and safer to load the speargun, especially when more than one powerband are used. By the way, the polished countour of the pins makes the dyneema wishbone life much longer.

According with the final use destination of the speargun, it is very important to find an optimum balance between its various parts. In particular, bands power, shaft weight and speargun's body mass. An unbalanced speargun may cause undesired effects. If, for example, the bands power and shaft weight are too high compared to the speargun's body mass, the recoil at the moment of the shot may become relevant and cause a loss in accuracy. As a general rule, especially when the bands power is a lot, given a certain shaft weight, it's better to go for a shorter and thicker shaft. For example, on spearguns rigged with a couple of 17,5mm power bands, it's wise to use a 7mm shaft, 10 cm shorter than the standard 6,5mm one. On a "100", a 130cm x 7mm, instead of the 140cm x 6,5mm. We advice to crimp the mono to the second hole on the shaft tail, so that the mono does not enter the trigger box. In order not to have the mono getting in the way between the wishbone and the shaft pin while loading the speargun, we advice to pass the mono directly onto the line release as shown in the picture:
