The most Important Spearfishing Gear is your Speargun
So the most important spearfishing gear you need to buy for spearfishing is your speargun. I recommend you spend around half your spearfishing gear budget on the purchase of your speargun. You can compromise on some items of equipment but try and get as high a quality speargun as you can afford, Such as Cressi, it will last you longer and get you'll get more fish. Other spear fishing gear you may want is a reel to hold the line and a Torpedo float so boat skippers and Jetski riders know where you are in the water.. A competition line / thread also helps.
