Orca Speargun - Thula
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!!

Since those earlier days of trying to produce everything we have slowly evolved through a process of elimination to where we are today - a manufacturer specialising in Spearfishing Equipment and Underwater Hockey Pucks.
From small beginnings where we only supplied the local market we have grown to the point where 95% of our business is export based. The Orca brand is synonymous with quality and we are continually striving to refine, improve and increase the range of products available.
We pride ourselves on the fact that our products are not mass produced, 90% of our raw materials are produced in South Africa and our products made to order. Some spearfishing equipment manufacturers lay claim to being able to 'produce 300 guns per day', simply because most of their components are pre-made in Asia and all they have to then do is put in a couple of screws, or pack the items in their own-brand packaging.
Working together with a local engineering company we started creating our own brand of spears which, through intense R&D, has resulted in us being one of the few companies in the world that can offer 6.1mm, 6.6mm, 7mm, 7.5mm and 8mm spears in 2000MPa spring steel. Our motto on spear manufacture is "You specify - we quote and produce"
Orca products are available through a distribution network of National Dealers who in turn have their own networks within their countries or regions.
