This is my go to setup for everything unless I'm going to the outside kelp aka looking for big Seabass or yellowtail. I have got smaller Seabass in close with it though
Aluminum spears are hands down the best in the long run, of all the aluminums christ makes the best one imo
All those carbon spears will eventually explode from all the shock and impact of smashing into rocks and fish.

I like the jbl slip tip, switch it out with spectra and its pretty sweet. I dive all the polespear competitions with it.
For super big fish I'd like to have a 12ft christ with a real spectra slip tip.

I just know they get stuck between rocks an bend/break. I don't know about carbon but I. Really like my biller it's just thicker heavier punches hard with a suped up band but I def need the spiral tied grip I added. Plus the tip threads on as male it's thicker an less likely to snap. Either way pole spears are simple and I'm sure u can slay with any kind. It just a preference/cost thing

Re: WSB Gun purchase

I understand the not being able to afford it thing....to me if u can't afford a decent wsb setup ie 3 band sliptip, then u cant afford to hunt wsb....I have shot pleanty with a 50" gun and slip tip and only about 60% make it all the way through the fish......I have come full circle I now use a homemade 62" 5/16 3bander with sliptip and breakaway...it seems I get a shot at really big fish ie 65-90 once /twice a yr im not wasting my time with some dink euro

Re: WSB Gun purchase

A 120cm banded euro gun with standard flopper will do the job just fine. WSB are pussies compared to doggies and GTs. I shoot them all the time with this setup. You cali guys are brainwashed.

But guys like trying to outshoot the viz 10 to 1 with 4 bands and 65 inches though! Targeting a world record class fish then yes I can side on the big side, but most = unnecessary

Time to put strategic pink x's on my wetsuit to keep me safe from the hordes of trigger happy goons

Just cuz guys are shooting Marlins, wahoo, Huge cubera, king mackerel, Cobia, Doggies, GTs and other game fish around the world just fine in clear water with railguns doesn't mean that railguns are good enough for WSB. We don't live in California, we wouldn't understand.

Winner winner chicken dinner!
Seabass really aren't that big, that soft, or that powerful. Compared to say, wahoo, we have it very easy and the whole rest of the world still manages to blast them all day long with floppers and railguns.
Sure the spectra tips are nice because they give you a larger margin of error with your shot to land the fish but aren't needed if you are accurate with your gun (ie you've shot a few hundred fish with it and you can hit dimes with it without trying anymore)
I've never even shot a seabass with a slip tip, all floppers, retro doubles by dean, and a few with a slip tube (retarded invention don't buy one, cost me a fish of a lifetime)
My gun scheme this year for seabass is a 90cm for 15ft or less viz and a 130 for over. Floppers on both.
