Rock Hopper PVC Float – Small – 55cm
‘Rock Hopper’ (Small) PVC Float
HUNTMASTER has incorporated true innovative technology for spearfishing floats. These tubeless floats are constructed with the strongest material on the market – 0.9mm PVC. This material is used for high-end Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB) such as marine rescue and police boats. These floats come in a range of high visibility colours.
With a tear capacity of over ‘450kgs’, the Rock Hopper is built tough, HUNTMASTER tough! Don’t let is size deceive you. This little float has 20kg of lift at 20m depth and can hold 1.5 Atmosphere.
Why Rock Hopper?
This is perfect for rock hopping and shore diving, where you expect to come across something big. It has been tested extensively in New South Wales shore diving for 20kg Kingfish and has held its own against 25kg Spanish Mackerel in Queensland. For a float that measures only 55cm long by 35cm wide and weighing only 1.2kg, it’s a real workhorse.
The wide low profile shape of the ROCK HOPPER makes it perfect for long swims up and down the coast; it glides effortlessly behind the hunter as it skims the surface. The additional D Rings can be used to attach a flasher, stringer, whistle, drinking water or cray net.
Unique High Viz Colours:
These unique high viz colours can be mixed and matched with the Huntsman and Huntress wetsuits, rashguards, Harbinger camo masks, snorkels and Huntmaster float lines.
Even the purple floats and float lines can pair up nicely with the Blue Huntsman or Pink Huntress wetsuit, with slight shades of purple throughout the Harbinger Blue and Pink Camo!!!
These high viz colours are crucial for safety, ensuring divers are seen by other boats and fellow divers.
The HUNTMASTER (HM) team has worked extensively to provide the ultimate spearfishing float design. HUNTMASTER floats have been carefully crafted with the following design features:
- All HUNTMASTER floats are made using 0.9mm PVC, making them puncture-proof and abrasion-resistant, protecting the float from damage from fish fins, spear tips, knives and other sharp objects.
- Our floats are aerodynamically engineered and handcrafted with an internal and external structural design that lessens drag in the water. This new technology ensures maximum comfort for the spearo, reducing exertion from dragging heavy floats and improving overall dive time.
- Unlike other spearfishing floats, HUNTMASTER float designs are innovatively shaped. As demonstrated in the product image, our floats do not require additional lead weights to be added for the flag to remain upright.
- Structural design and dimensions of medium HUNTMASTER floats allow for ~ 20kgs* (40lbs) of lift ~ 20m depth. This is achieved by pressurizing the float up to 1 Atmosphere (ATM), (15 lbs PSI).
- Our floats come in a variety of high visibility colours, ensuring that you are seen by other boats and fellow divers, which is crucial for safety.
What’s included with my HUNTMASTER ‘Rock Hopper’ float?
When you order a Huntmaster float, you can expect the following items to be included in your purchase;
