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.

LOL! That must be some magic fish killer. No skill required.

Hey, I can play fanboy, too! CRIST! CRIST!! Get the CRIST!!! If you are only going to get one pole spear, make it a CRIST!!! The 250 lb World Record Striped Marlin was taken with a CRIST!!!! And, you might just run into one.

Next to a marlin, groupers are pussies. All you have to do is flash your CRIST in front of of a grouper and the fish will jump in your boat and go....fillet itself. I know, cuz even though I've never used one, my buddy said so. He knows EVERYTHING! He even told me so...

Man, all these world record grouper being taken with a pole spear are under 20 lbs. What's up with that?!

Oh, wait, Craig Copik took a 100 lb black grouper in Bermuda and I think he used a CRIST!!!

CRIST because...100 LBS WORLD RECORD BLACK GROUPER!!!

Re: Sea stinger vs Keller

There yah go. The mathematics behind a the spear are just way off. The best polespears can be found in the matrix.

Attaboy, LoGiiCz!

You're going to want to bring a lot of tips and shafts.

When my Keller is to slow, I'll resort to the Glock.
