Wahoo on a Guerrilla Sling

Over the past 2 years we have been able to watch Ryan Myers as he continuously pushes the limits for spearfishing in the Bahamas. Whether he is using a sling or polespear in 185 feet or dodging oceanic whitetips out in the blue, Ryan is helping change the way we all look at triggerless spearfishing. 

Yesterday Ryan and Luke found the wahoo and they were trying to get one on polespear or sling. Ryan managed to shoot but loose one with a predator polespear. Then Luke nailed one with his Guerrilla Sling! Ryan managed to get the hunt on video, check it out!

 

Guerrilla Sling video by Hutchins Torregrosa

I was just sent this video by a customer of ours, Hutchins Torregrosa. This kid can shoot a sling, no doubt about that. The best is the shot at 0:30 where he has one fish on the sling and shoots another! That is a solid move and is one of the many reasons why I love shooting a sling. 

Notice the color of the power band Hutch uses. That is not the band the sling comes with. When we designed the sling, we wanted it to be able to use any band you could find and allow you to easily change those bands. Bands usually break when you are on a trip somewhere and replacements are hard to find.

The Headlock Plug system allows the band to be changed more easily than on any spearfishing device we have seen. No knots, no wraps, no string. And any power band material that is 1/2" diameter or less will work with the sling. So the off the shelf latex tubing at your local dive shop should work. And if you want spare bands, ready to go, we do offer pre-cut bands in 4 different styles: Light, Medium(standard band), Heavy, and Extra Heavy. Band length can be varied too, helping achieve the perfect stretch for your particular draw.
