    Default How to rig a line on hawaiian sling

    How does anyone else rig a line to the spear? Do you have problems with the line tangleing? Just looking for ways to improve my current set up.

    I would say to just use a euro shaft with the line at the back of the shaft going to a float line.
    Something NEW is coming soon...

    Seemed like it had too much drag that way. I need the line because of deep water so i rigged the spear with a slide to snap line to. The end of the shaft is swagged just enough to stop the slide but not hinder the pass thru of the handle. With the coiled line, i have 12' plus the 5' shaft from the end of the handle. Works like a charm.

    could just use small "zip tie." Tighten around shaft just behind flopper, with small rubber band inside of tie, and insert line through tie just before tightening down.

    use a drill press to make a hole in shaft.
    rig up with line thru your sling bam..
    in other words when you shoot your fish the sling and shaft will go along with your float line...
