that thing is cool looking. I saw one simalar to that in a bait store in Wisconsin and I think it was in Hayward that was quite a few years ago and I wasnt sure what it was.

I see those for sale on-line from time to time.

I don't know how well they work though.

Pretty cool though!!

We had one when I was a kid. As scary as they look, they don't work as well as a regular spear.
