Koah spearguns we love
Koah Shortie speargun 38 inch: The pistol of Koah spearguns. It's super easy to handle and carry while lobstering. This is what you want in the Florida Keys, to take hogfish and snapper. Like our friend Woody did.
Koah Battle Axe speargun 58 inch: The Battle Axe is awesome because it switches between freeshifting to line shafting without relining the speargun. Specialized line release and bungee keeps the line tight to the gun and stays stowed while you're freeshafting. Changeover in seconds. This is an outstanding speargun for those who require flexibility.
Koah standard Fatback speargun 54 inch: An outstanding go-to speargun in virtually any environment. Despite its name (seriously, guys, come on, "fatback"?), this weapon is solidly balanced and ballasted, trimmed down, rounded in the middle for easy tracking and a comfortable grip, and ridiculously accurate. Recoil is minimal, too - and the equal-width front and rear make adding a spare shaft holder a breeze. You probably won't need it, though.
Koah spearguns: hand-crafted from the world's finest woods
In addition to the classic, time-honored nautical wood mahogany, Koah spearguns come in several beautiful types of wood.
Teak heartwood is golden to medium brown, darkening with age. Starts out looking like pine and by the time you pass your speargun off to your grandchildren, will be as dark as well-stained cherry or walnut.
Padauk is an African wood that ranges from pale, pink-orange to deep brown-red. Ages to a rich purplish-brown that's truly unusual. Twice as hard as teak and not frequently worked with just because it's so darned hard - which makes it incredibly robust and the perfect natural material for a hard-working piece of gear like a speargun.
Sipo is another African hardwood that's medium reddish-brown, the color you remember from the stock and forearm of your grand-dad's deer-hunting rifle. A very traditional look you'll enjoy every time you hold your speargun.
Because Koah's staff are expert woodcrafters, they sometimes create custom spearguns out of even more rare and exotic hardwoods including tigerwood and purpleheart.
