The COBIA is Rob Allen’s ‘so called’ entry level gun aimed at the beginners looking to get top quality without having to rob a post office. We say ‘so called’ because this mean hunting partner holds several world records in its own right. Powered by the same 16mm bands as the top of range models, the COBIA packs one hell of a punch.
Unlike most of its competitors in the entry level bracket, it is made from aviation grade aluminium and not plastic which means it’s incredibly rugged and durable. This makes it an ideal gun for shore divers as it eats up the sometimes unforgiving conditions and continues to perform season after season.
Furthermore it is made up of the same internal workings as the rest of Rob Allen fleet meaning no corners were cut with this seriously powerful and hardened gun.
This speargun is popular with surfers, anglers and most other newcomers who don’t want to compromise on quality. The shorter lengths make excellent backup guns for cave and hole hunting as they are extremely powerful yet affordable.
This model is available in lengths from 50cm to 110cm, is powered by a single 16mm band and fires a 6.6mm tri-cut spear for deeper penetration.
If you are looking for a beginner speargun then the RA COBIA should be at the top of your list.
