ORCA Thula Heavy Duty Speargun
Many guns within the spearfishing market today lay claim to being ‘the most accurate available’ with the sole evidence being record trophy fish landed by a group of extremely experienced and talented spearo’s. Shouldn’t the real test of accuracy be carried out in the hands of total novices who have never shot fish before? This is what ORCA did to ‘prove’ the accuracy of their guns, the results of these tests affirming what they believed - their superior materials and methods of manufacture have produced a gun that is consistently accurate, even in the hands of total novices!!
Many manufacturers describe their Aluminium (Aluminum) barrels in the glowing terms of ‘aircraft grade’ when this is nothing more than the industry standard. ORCA have gone a step further to use aerospace grade aluminium for their extrusions. Yes, it is more expensive but when they say their barrels have better strength and stiffness, can handle strong rubbers and can be used in longer lengths with the least amount of flex, they know we have the best material backing this claim.
The anodised aluminium barrel is then sleeved with a unique PVC sleeve having a spear guide along the full length of the barrel. This has been designed with features to ensure ultra quietness as the spear leaves the gun and to then keep it’s trajectory in as straight a flight path as possible.
As any engineer will confirm, tube extrusions, whatever the material, create very slight twist as they are extruded (by virtue of the process). To combat this ORCA assemble their guns on a specially designed jig. This enables them to eliminate even the smallest deviation from perfect straightness of the spear guide. With this level of accuracy in lining up handle-barrel-muzzle, is it any wonder novices find it easier to hit a moving target under water with an Orca ‘Thula’ gun than with any other gun tested!! Awesome top quality speargun from South Africa made from top quality materials including Aerospace' grade 6082T6 Aluminium tube with 1.6mm wall.
