The New RIFFE Padauk Series spearguns are an exact replica of our famous Competitor Teak Series with exception to the wood. We replaced the teak with an African blood wood, commonly known as Padauk. When using a dense, straight grain hardwood such as Padauk we are able to produce the speargun barrels by eliminating the lamination process to hold straightness. Our new series of spearguns are very attractive, not only the way they look, but how they are priced.

Key West hunting Great gun! I spear with a lot of guys that use the Riffe Teak Competitor and noticed no real difference between their gun and mine. I’ve only had it for a few weeks but so far I am a huge fan. As I understand it the Padauk model is a solid piece of wood as opposed to the layered Teak. In the long haul the Teak will probably have a longer shelf life but for the price I am extremely happy with the Padauk.

Great Speargun I bought this speargun a little over a month ago, and since then have taken it freedive spearfishing three times. Right out of the box you can tell this gun is quality, beautiful hardwood and Stainless parts point to the high standard that RIFFE has seem to built up. Since I live in Oregon, the small thirty three inch stock is a great plus in the low visibility and tight quarters. The shaft hasn’t bent yet, despite me shooting it, with both bands, point blank through a snapper and into a rock, on more than one occasion. The trigger is nice and crisp when shooting underwater, which, i believe, contributes to this gun’s dead-on accuracy. As far as balance is concerned, it does sink when loaded, and tips forward slightly when you are swimming underwater with it, however, no big deal, as the weight is hardly noticeable. This speargun is also very easy to load, and can either shoot with one or two bands. Diving in cold water, and wearing heavy gloves does hinder wrapping the line around…
