Yes, I bought a gun from him and a buddy has his upgrade there. We both had great experiences and got good prices. I highly recommended the Spear Shack

It's true, Mark will Price match pretty much anything!!! Mark can upgrade anything and everything. He is a very experienced and very fun dive partner!! He has sold me almost all my dive stuff and he knows his stuff well. He also does beginner shop dives in OB.

Re: Spear Shack in OB?

I just talked with Mark on the phone and he seems like a good stand-up, no b-s, guy.
He answered all my questions and was very straightforward.

The ab biller upgrades he described seem like a good option for me as I can't currently justify the cost of a new custom gun.

Looks like I'll be making a road trip soon to get my biller 42 teak and 60 mahagony upgraded and ready for spring 2009.

Re: Spear Shack in OB?

Saw this post and just thought I met let everyone know. Mark's favorite fish to hunt is Halibut and this month he nailed his PB by about 12 lbs! 44 inches long and 36 lbs. if I remember right.

I was in town for 4 days to visit my nieces. The first thing I did was go and see the Pacific lol. The closest I got to a fish was the aquarium.

I have known Mark for several years now. Bought 2 Hatch guns and had several fixed.

1. He is a NO BS guy.
2. He can fish.
3. He is patient.

If you are serious about spearing fish, see Mark. He will set you up and on your path to stoning fish.

Re: Spear Shack in OB?

In regards to Spearshack. Mark is the real deal. James and Joseph used to be Marks old business. Both shops definitely have quality products and are great. I buy more from Spearshack due to my loyalty to Mark and the slightly more convienent ob location. Mark has helped more divers than I can imagine start out. He stands behind his products and is a funny, talented and humble guy. Can't say enough good things about Mark.

Re: Spear Shack in OB?

Can't say enough good things about Mark and SpearShack. Top notch, Mark has the knowledge and experience that should be in every spearfishing shop, but isn't. As someone already said, his family owned J&J back in the day. In the spearfishing community he's been there and done that, and he can explain to anyone why he's been successful. I highly recommend giving him a call and going into the shop and just talking for a while. Truly a wealth of knowledge.
