The Cobia is an excellent starter gun for beginners wanting to try their hand at spearfishing. Powered by the same 16mm bands as the top-end guns, the Cobia packs one hell of a punch. Unlike most of its competitors in the entry-level bracket, it is made from aviation-grade aluminum and not plastic which means it’s incredibly rugged and durable. This makes it an ideal gun for shore divers as it eats up the sometimes unforgiving conditions and continues to perform season after season. The shorter lengths make an excellent gun for freshwater fishing along with cave and hole hunting. If you are looking for a beginner speargun then the RA COBIA should be at the top of your list.
