    Horizontal Reels

    When attaching a spearfishing reel to your speargun, you've got two main options, vertical or horizontal reels. The differences between the two are fairly minor and ultimately, like many things in spearfishing, really comes down to personal preference. 

    A horizontal reel is generally sat closer to the gun barrel, with a smaller side-profile, making it (marginally) better at tracking through the water than an up-and-down vertical design. But, your reel line isn't as close to the gun which can mean some extra drag in this regard, and more potential for it to snag on the reef. 

    In terms of actually reeling, with a horizontal reel the gun is positioned on its left side for right-handers while winding whereas a vertical reel you typically flip the gun. It's all about personal preference, but if you're looking for some advice come into one of our stores or talk to our customer service team.
