How Much Weight Should I Put on Spearfishing Belt?

Spearfishing is a great way to get involved in the outdoors and explore the depths of the ocean with a unique perspective. Spearfishing involves using a spear gun, which is a device that launches a spear into the water and can be used to catch fish, octopus, and other aquatic creatures. One of the most important aspects of spearfishing is finding the right weight for your belt that will provide you with the best possible balance in the water.

For starters, it’s important to keep in mind that every person’s body type is different.

Therefore, it’s important to find what works best for you when determining how much weight you should put on your belt. Generally speaking, you want to aim for a weight that will allow you to be able to move freely in the water while still being able to maintain your balance.

If you are new to spearfishing, it’s best to start with a lighter weight until you become more comfortable in the water and understand how much weight is appropriate for your body type. As you become more experienced, you can add more weights incrementally until you reach a comfortable level that still allows you freedom of movement while providing enough balance.

It’s also important to remember that when using weights on your belt, make sure they are securely fastened so they don’t come off during your dive. Weights can be dangerous if not properly secured and can damage both yourself and other marine life if they come off during your dive.


When deciding how much weight should be put on your spearfishing belt, it’s important to remember that everyone’s body type is different. Start with a lighter load until you become comfortable in the water and then gradually increase as needed until finding an appropriate balance between freedom of movement and stability. Make sure all weights are securely attached before diving.
