F.A.Q. How Do I Care For Speargun Rubber?

Your speargun rubber is designed to be resistant to water and UV light but it will start to degrade over time and with exposure to the elements. Salt, UV Rays and non-regular washing after each use will cause your rubber to deteriorate over time. However you should be able to use your speargun rubbers quite a few times before they need to be replaced.

You can however extend the life of your speargun rubbers by always washing them in fresh water after each use. When storing your speargun rubbers you should keep them in a dry, dark place when not in use that is not prone to significant extremes of heat. In addition if you lube the rubbers with some silicone grease it will help to keep them supple.

Each time before you use your speargun you should get into the routine to check your rubbers over thoroughly for any sign of damage or wear. Failure to do so could be dangerous as the rubbers could break under tension if they are worn or damaged. This could cause the shaft to release unexpectedly or the rubber could snap when you are trying to load the shaft injuring your fingers or yourself.

You can judge when your speargun rubber is getting towards the end of its usefulness when the power in the release starts to decline.
