hello everybody I'm new to this board. would like names and phone#s of dive shops in melbourne area. I bought a pole spear about a year ago in melbourne on my way to Eleuthera. Would like to get more tips to fit my pole. Can't remember the name of the dive shop. Thanks Kevin.

There are a few oddballs though. If you can remove the tip and measure the thread it's easy to determine what type of tip you need, Trying different nuts on the pole at the local NAPA auto parts is a fast way to do this. Once you know the thread new tips are available from most dive shops, even if they have to order them.

Most tips will be 6mm or 5/16. I use mostly 6mm, but do have a couple of 5/16 tips. You can also get adapters that will go from 6mm to 5/16.
