    Out here in hawaii we call them slings.. or a three prong. I used a three prong for about 2 months before i finally moved to a gun. IT good to start off with if your just looking for something basic..but dont be fooled it does require some skill to use it.. get a good six footer to start with... By the time i got done using one i was up to a 8ft sling. Just make sure that when you get one that you buy grip tape with it...

    Just buy a good ol' fiberglass shaft with a decent tip. I bought my first legit setup for about $40. You can pick up a shaft at almost any dive shop for about $15, and you have the rest of the money to splurge on a good spear tip. There's no need for an expensive setup while you're "testing the waters" per se'. If you really feel the need, you can use hockey tape for grip.

    I just got one of his Flounder Specials and it did the job. I have always bought the fiberglass poles and usually go through about 5 a year. The tips on the fiberglass rod break off after some time. Ray's pole spear is solid aluminum with the tip screwed into the center. A little heavy but it seems bullit proof and it was only $53 shipped to the house with two tips to boot. Thanks Ray
