Riffe FloatRiffe have been a leader in creating top quality spearfishing gear for years, so it is hardly surprising that they have designed excellent floats - which come in 2 basic varieties to suit all spearfishing applications: Torpedo float and 2 Atmosphere Riffe Float.
Spearfishing floats come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes - some are solid plastic and others are simply inflated. Solid plastic floats have the advantage that they can take the knocks and resist crushing with depth. They are however, not very portable and can be a real pain on a small boat...not to mention if a large fish takes you for a ride and the float manages to hit you in the head on the way past! The Riffe torpedo float and 2 atmosphere floats are both inflatable, so easy to pack down and transport and very light to tow around in the water.
The Riffe floats are nylon covered so can take the normal abuse you will expect to give them while spearfishing. The high visibility orange color and flag (is included with the Riffe torpedo float) make them excellent if you are in high traffic areas where being seen is essential. The shape and color of both of these types of Riffe float means that when a fish is towing the float, they are easily spotted so that the others you are diving with will be able to track your progress and realise you are fighting a big fish.
The durability and longevity of the Riffe floats are excellent, so they will both take the abuse and last a long time - making them an ideal choice for spearfishing.
The choice of Riffe float depends on the application:

Riffe 2 Atmosphere Torpedo FloatThis Riffe float is for the serious spearo who takes on the big fish in blue water. It is designed to be inflated up to 25 PSI making it extremely buouyant, maintaining lift up to 95 pounds at a depth of 66 feet. The float can be inflated using a tire pump or compressor to get to the correct pressure. The zip is reinforced with nylon straps to stop the pressure compromising the zip when inflated and the urethane bladder can also be replaced. As with the standard torpedo float - once deflated, it will pack down to a very small space making transport simple...Buy Now
