Product 1001. Lionfish Polespear
We offer the SafeSpear Lionfish Polespear (patented) separately for the advanced diver who may already own other diver safety gear. However, we do recommend purchasing the lionfish gloves, lionfish gripper, and lionfish clipper to help safely remove the venomous spines. SafeSpear's Lionfish Polespear is the best solution and the best spear for catching lionfish--even if you've already been spearing them for a while. Why continue taking the risk of being stung by the lionfish? Patents have issued in the United States (US Patent No. 8,887,434 B2) and in the Bahamas (Bahamas Patent No. 2252) covering spears and containers such as dive bags. Patent applications are pending in the United States covering additional spears and containers such as dive bags. Invest in the SafeSpear Lionfish Polespear--you'll be investing in all of our environmental futures!
Polespear manufacturers were researched to find someone to make a high-quality, reliable product. SafeSpear, LLC eventually contracted with noted Gat-Ku polespear maker Dustin McIntyre to manufacture a new Lionfish Polespear (Patented) that allows you to harvest lionfish while maintaining a safe distance from them. “We are only interested in working with the best, and the product Dustin makes is top-notch,” says Gregg. Catch the engineer/developer Dustin on the Gat-Ku website: www.gat-ku.com.
All aluminum is machined in the US, centerless ground to create a 32 finish, and then anodized to ensure anti-corrosive properties.
