We recommend replacing your speargun bands every two years, reel line every 2-3 and shooting line with terminal tackle should be replaced every season. Inspect for damage to replace as needed throughout the season.You do not want to lose that fish of a lifetime due to component failure.

*NEF Preventative Maintenance and Care Tips.
  1. Always wash your speargun and flush reel with clean fresh water immediately or as quickly as possible after a dive session.
  2. Keep speargun bands and shooting line out of direct sunlight whenever possible. UV rays can breakdown rubber in bands which will lead to premature cracking and failure. Mono and nylon/mono blend shooting lines can be affected similarly. Store out of direct sunlight and transport with covered or in speargun bag.
  3. Spray and wipe down aluminum speargun barrels and rubber bands with a silicone spray to remove deposit buildup and / or prevent it.
  4. Spraying trigger mechanisms periodically with a quality lubricant and corrosion preventative will remove harmful salt deposit build up and lubricate properly. We recommend a Food Grade Silicone like CRC.
