    Default 1 piece vs breakdown pole spear questions

    I am pretty new to spearfishing in general but was wondering which would flex less under pressure from the band, a single piece aluminum pole spear or a break down aluminum pole spear?
    Also does anyone have any info on graphite pole spears, like if thay flex alot, and are they better than aluminum.

    And thirdly does any on know about seahorse pole spears

    Most aluminum spears dont bend when the band is pulled. Some are very thin walled and could flex. Problem with sectioned spears is the screw connection can come loose each time the spear is shot. Must make sure it stays tight. Or it could bend there. But for travel you need to break it down. I dont think one piece or sectioned aluminum spears if thick enough flex much. I have not had that happen. Graphite/carbon fiber is light and fast, but fragile. They have their place, but very careful handling, and knowing that a big fish could break it, must be used. When a carbon fiber polespear flexs too much it is completly destroyed.
