    Best BCD for Spearfishing??

    Just getting started in spearfishing and looking for experienced advice on best BCD for the job.. I'm thinking something low profile, minimal drag, perhaps like travel BCD.. Would that be appropriate??

    I don't spearfish, other than Lionfish.

    But, maybe the Zeagle Express Tech? I have one, and it's easy to modify, and very minimalist.

    I have a few friends that spearfish overseas and they all prefer the backplate and wing setups. There are so many of them out there to choose from but I do like the new Hog Wing that comes in the Backplate and Wing Package. Its just under $400.00 and the option for upgrading is never ending.
    Thanks,
    Joey

    Look at a Hunter Pac from Dive Rite. I have only read about them but they sound like what you are looking for.
    If it doesn't fit, force it. If it breaks it needed to be replaced anyway.

    I'd take a look at the Hunter Pac also- it was designed for spearfishing.

    So was the Zeagle Stiletto - it's named after the kill knife of the same name. It's technically a travel BC also.

    I know several people who spear on a BP/W also.

    I spear with a b/p wing. I do not like spearing with A bcd with all the crap dangling off it.

    I have used the Zeagle Stiletto with some success. I too do not like any junk hanging from me.
