Rob Allen heavy duty float line
This spearfishing line is traditionally used to connect your gun to your float so you can let go of your gun after you have shot a fish or if you run into difficulty. You can then simply pull up your gun / fish from the surface. This is a big safety factor for the UK and is normally in everyone’s spearfishing equipment kit list.
At 4mm thick it comes in olive green and has a breaking strain of over 1000lbs. It is incredibly buoyant, UV treated and anti-abrasive. Finally it has loops on each side for quickly clipping on and off spearfishing gear.
If you are new to spearfishing you should probably start with a 10 or 15 meter length. We generally recommend you have at least an extra 5 meters over your diving depth so the swell doesn’t tug on your gun when you’re bottom side.
You can also include a 9mm dyneema core bungee to cover more variable depths without having to use a really long float line which can be annoying. Remember the idea is that your float is never too far behind you as it’s what keeps the boats away!
