Spearfishing and the use of spearfishing equipment are inherently dangerous activities. Improper use of spearguns or unsafe diving methods can result in damage to property, injury or death. Before each use of a TAG Spearguns product, you should ensure the safety, fitness, and suitability of the product(s) for their intended use. Never attempt to modify or alter a TAG Speargun or it’s components. All spearguns should be in the unloaded state when not in the water. TAG Spearguns assumes no liability arising out of the use or misuse of their products by the consumer. 


Any Safety Guidelines are provided for assistance only and TAG Spearguns assumes no liability arising out of the use or misuse of these principles. 



  • In addition to these guidelines, ensure proper training is obtained. There are several Freedive and SCUBA diving organizations that offer training and various levels of certification including spearfishing courses and surf survival courses. 

  • Spearguns shall only be transported unloaded with a safety cover on the tip of the shaft. 

  • Never dive or spearfish without a competent, trained partner.

  • Inspect all speargun components and parts for damage prior to each use. Do not attempt to use a damaged speargun. 

  • Never load a speargun out of the water.

  • Always unload spearguns before removing from the water. 

  • Always use a spear tip protector when entering and exiting the water from shore, boat, kayak, etc.

  • Always ensure trigger mechanism is free of debris before inserting the spear.

  • Always point a loaded speargun in a safe direction, away from people, non-target animals, boats, structures, etc. even if a trigger safety is in use.  

  • Before loading the bands, firmly insert the spear into the trigger mechanism. Then, with the spear pointing in a safe direction away from your body, pull the spear firmly to ensure it is fully engaged in the trigger mechanism.

  • When loading a speargun, ensure that it is pointed in a safe direction.

  • If a speargun is dropped, crushed, pinched, or abused in any way, do not attempt to load or use the speargun. Contact TAG Spearguns and arrange inspection of the speargun.

  • Never attempt to modify a TAG Speargun including but not limited to: Changing band length, thickness or configuration to increase power, drilling holes, making cuts, removing material, changing parts, etc. 

  • Spearguns will recoil when the shaft is fired. When firing, ensure the speargun handle is braced firmly with the arm holding the gun fully extended. 

  • When firing the speargun, ensure no fingers, hands, or other body parts are touching the spear shaft, bands or any other moving parts of the speargun. 

  • If using a gun-mounted camera, ensure that the speargun is only pointed in a safe direction. Never use a speargun-mounted camera as a method of obtaining video footage of yourself or other divers. 

  • After each use disassemble the speargun and rinse with fresh water. 

  • Before connecting the two halves of the travel speargun, ensure no debris is in the male or female end of the connection tubes. 

  • Connecting or disconnecting the two halves of the speargun must be performed slowly so that the air can escape the connection cavity. 

  • Always use loctite and tools to ensure the two-piece spear shaft is securely connected at the threaded center-connection. 

  • Only use TAG Spearguns approved spear shafts with a euro notch. 

  • Never leave a speargun unattended.

  • Never leave a loaded speargun in the water unattended including attached to a float, buoy, dock, boat, kayak, etc. or laying on the bottom of the body of water. 

  • Always dive according to the least capable dive partner’s ability and plan your dives based on weather, shore and water conditions.

  • Always follow relevant fishing and spearfishing regulations.
