  • Where are the spearguns made?
    The parts and materials are sourced from several countries including the United States. The spearguns are built in San Diego, California.
  • What is the best way to aim a speargun?
    Spearguns are somewhat intuitive and rather easy to aim. Often, the difficult part is getting close enough to the fish to ensure a well-placed shot. Spearguns have significant recoil which, if not braced properly, can cause injury to the diver. Hold the speargun out with your shooting arm fully extended and elbow locked. Ensure the wrist is directly inline with the speargun rather than on the side of the handle. Besides safety, proper form and recoil control significantly improve the spearguns range and accuracy - Any energy that is used to move you or your arm backwards is energy that is taken away from moving the spear forwards. Furthermore, when recoil causes the arm or hand to twist or pan from left to right, this can throw the spear shaft off-target. We always recommend spending time practicing shooting a target in the shallows to improve accuracy and technique.
  • Is a roller speargun better than a 2-band speargun?
    Both types of spearguns can perform well if setup correctly. The main difference between the two is that a rollergun will have less recoil than a traditional 2-band speargun of the same size/power. The inverted rollergun is a bit more complicated when it comes to setup but it is mostly a matter of personal preference. When we go spearfishing and are able to take multiple guns, we almost always take both types and usually end up using both throughout the day.
  • How long will my speargun take to arrive?
    Each speargun is made to order. Depending on backlog and material availability, you can expect 1 week plus shipping. Feel free to contact before placing your order to verify current lead times.
  • Where are the spear shafts made?
    The spear shafts are made in Southern California.
  • Which length of speargun should I buy?
    Unfortunately, there is no one speargun length that will cover all diving conditions, habitats, and target species. Some factors that determine the appropriate speargun: - Visibility: In low visibility, a shorter speargun is preferred. In high visibility, a longer gun is often needed as the fish may be less hesitant to come in. - Fish size: In addition to the distance the fish is from the speargun, we also need to consider the the width of the target species. The spear must be able to reach the fish and still have enough energy to secure a good holding shot with the flopper. - Habitat: When reef hunting and spearing fish around rocks, sand, in holes, caves, etc. a long gun often becomes a hinderance. Shorter spearguns are better suited for hunting in potentially tight spaces and at short ranges.
  • How do I assemble the speargun and spear shaft?
    Speargun: TAG Spearguns use a simple, friction connection. Slide the two halves of the speargun together slowly to ensure sufficient air can escape. The center connection will automatically line up the two pieces of the speargun. To disassemble the speargun, slowly pull the two halves of the speargun apart. Travel Spear Shaft: We recommend using teflon tape or low-strength threadlocker when targeting larger, stronger species. The shaft can either be hand-tightened or "soft" jaw pliers can be used for a tighter fit. Do not over-tighten the shaft.
