17m Rig Rope w/speed spike

Product Description

  • 17m length
  • 16 plat x 6mm nylon-rope
  • Black colour
  • Speed spike (gill needle) to feed fish onto the rope
Constructed from nylon cords woven into a 16 thread plat producing a light and buoyant rope very suitable for spearfishing purposes. The tighter weave of the 16plat decreases towing drag and the potential for fowling in the reef is greatly reduced thanks to the increased buoyancy. It is also more tangle free than the previous 8plat models.

General Float Rope info:

Float ropes (often called rig ropes), are a towing line that is typically connected from the speargun handle to a float or buoy. This combo ensures a spearguns are not lost to the ocean depths and offers a visual aid to help divers keep track of their dive buddies who are already down below.  In temperate waters (N,S,W,), where sharks are not a constant presents, fish captures are threaded onto the float rope using the speed spike (gill needle), which travel down to the float at the ropes end are towed there until exiting the water.

Finally, after weeks and weeks of swell, bad vis and wind, there looks to finally be a reprieve. Swell is dropping all the way through till Saturday, coupled with South winds to push in the clear water for most of the remainder of the week, this looks weekend looks like it could be good for diving finally. The swell is forecast at 0.8 metres for Saturday with very very light winds. Sunday however is a tad bigger at 1.0 metre but with medium strength Southerly winds. Try jumping in at a protected spot if the wind bothers you, such as The Bower (back of Shelley Beach away from the Marine Park), Dee Why, Warriewood, South Whale Beach and South Palm Beach. We are hoping that this forecast will stay true and everyone finally gets in and re-stocks the freezers! Fingers crossed! Forecast courtesy of
