Rob Allen 8mm Double Notch Drop Barb Spear Shaft

A real breakthrough in spearfishing the Rob Allen Drop Barb Shaft will change how we hunt everything from hard fighting reef fish to prize blue water game fish such as Marlin, Tuna and Wahoo. This unique system provides supreme accuracy with the actual point of aim being the same as your daily use Rob Allen spear shaft.

 

Manufactured exclusively in the Rob Allen factory in South Africa, these long awaited Drop Barb spear shafts are designed for hunting seriously big fish! Divers don't need to bother anymore with in-accurate, inferior and annoying slip tip designs that just leave your frustrated, disappointed and missing out on landing big trophy fish.

 

The Rob Allen Drop Barb Spear setup is his answer to simplifying the slip-tip setup. The barb is fully integrated into the shaft, eliminating the need for threaded spears and expensive slip-tips. This makes it the perfect 2-in-1 combination for taking on larger fish. Traditional slip-tip setups can easily cost well over $200 or more, while the Drop Barb system is a simple, and cost effective way to get ready for your next big fish adventure. Plus - no more mismatched threads and no more Locktite.

 

The major advantage of using the Rob Allen Drop Barb slip tip design is the significant improvement in holding power and landing rate thanks to the unique Drop Barb system which auto releases after penetrating the fish. As the shaft goes through the fish, the Drop Barb automatically dislodges from the spear completely, however it remains fully tethered to the shaft itself and provides a significantly stronger holding system.

 

This setup is significantly more effective than similar traditional slip-tips because the Drop Barb is directly tethered to the shaft, it does not affect the spear accuracy and it does not slow down shaft speed or punching power. The Rob Allen Drop Barb spear shaft has been designed with a large heavy duty smooth edged flopper with great holding capability and a Tri-cut tip for maximum penetration through bone, scale and flesh. Furthermore all Rob Allen Spears have been designed to fit all Euro gun mechanisms.

 

Rob Allen spear shafts are renowned throughout the world and the 8 mm Double Notch Drop Barb Spear Shaft is certainly no exception. The shaft itself has been manufactured from ultra tough, oil quenched carbon alloy spring steel which is tempered and hardened to 2100MPA in combination with Rob Allen’s unique spear straightening process. Each shaft is then Rhino plated for superior rust prevention and provides a long, hard working life. This special process means that you’re using only the sturdiest and straightest spear available. Finally, each shaft is then individually hand tested by Rob Allen to make sure it’s as straight as possible before leaving the factory.

 

The Rob Allen 8 mm Double Notch Drop Barb Spear Shaft makes an ideal upgrade replacement for your Rob Allen railgun. The thicker Rob Allen 8 mm shafts offer some additional benefits over similar thinner shafts. Firstly they are obviously stronger thanks to their extra thickness which makes them ideal for those spearos wanting to hunt bigger fish. Secondly, a stronger shaft is less likely to be damaged by floundering fish and thirdly because of their extra weight they also hit their target with a lot more force which promotes a deeper penetration as well which means that your shaft is a lot less likely to bounce of the fish.

 

Continuing on with the Rob Allen grueling testing regime, these Drop Barb spear tips have been rigorously proven in South Africa on 100+ kg monsters daily for a long period of time before they were brought to the market place. Rob Allen is known worldwide for his meticulous attention to detail and tireless testing of every product he puts his name too. He does not release products just for the sake of it but only to continue to evolve the perfect tool for hunting our waters.

 

Rob Allen is a legend in the spearfishing industry with hundreds of records and countless thousands of happy customers all around the world. By purchasing a Rob Allen Drop Barb Spear Shaft you too will join the growing list of spearos who come home after a successful day spearfishing thanks to Rob Allen.
