All About Pole Spears & Slings What is it about that traditional method of the early hunter/gatherers under the water? These devices are indeed interesting and effective.

Small ID pole spear band?

Would it make sense to try out small ID for a pole spear band?

Is something like 8mm or 10mm rubber even made with small inner diameter?

So many are raving about it for guns, that I was just wondering if anyone had tried it for pole spear yet.

I have small id band on my neritic big blue. I really like how it punches (single not double band) its 14mm small id band at 360%

Nice! How did you measure to determine the right length for 360% - total length?

Distance from where i atach my band to where i hold the spear when loaded most of the time. That divide by 3.6

What did you use for a loop to put your hand in to hold the band. Mind sharing some pictures, I have a Neritic Big Blue as well and thinking about doing an identical setup.

No photo sorry but its just a piece of strap from old backpack that i tied in a loop to fit mi hand and put a metal marine stainless quick release just in case. If i had to do it again maybe i woukd sew the loop instead of knot and no quick release as i have discovered hand NEVER gets caught.

Good luck
