The Sea Stinger 3 (SS3) is the absolute best breakaway tip available for spearguns and makes a great heavy duty polespear tip. It is the length of the SS1 but with the shaft thickness of the SS2. We recommend using the Sea Stinger 3 for hunting larger fish weighing more than 15 lbs. Each of these custom, hand built products are made of the finest materials available. The exclusive patented design incorporates an ice pick type point with a quick detachable slip cable.
These tips are designed to penetrate and hold your prey with as little force and as little damage as possible. The point is capable of piercing the fishes skin with very little force. The tip causes a tiny puncture wound only slightly larger than the stainless cable. The cable slips out of the body of the Stinger, allowing the tip to turn side ways and capture the fish. When the tip is deployed, the very end of the cable is captured by a locking retainer attached to the body of the Sea Stinger. When the fish is secured, the retainer is simply rotated to align the clearance slot with the cable and the cable and tip are released.
The Sea Stinger 3 (SS3) has four main advantages over other types of spear points:
- The sturdy 5/16" shaft and super sharp point penetrates the fish with little force.
- Because there is such a small wound in the fish, the point is not likely to tear out of the body and release the fish.
- The body of the fish is not destroyed and there is very little blood or tissue released in the water.
- Removing the prey and rearming the Sea Stinger takes only seconds.
This is a longterm investment that will pay for itself many times over. Rebuild kits are available so these units can be rebuilt year after year to a new condition so they will continue to perform for a lifetime.
