Used this a few times in the Bahamas last week. One of the prongs got slightly bent when a grouper ducked under a rock after being speared, but it still performed well after that. Barbs did not break off. I think the prongs are a little too long, but this is an issue with most paralyzers. The head stayed on the spear's threads pretty well, but I could see how a twisting fish might come close to getting itself and the head off the shaft. I used this with a JBL Shaka breakdown travel spear, which was great. In the end I favored the breakaway tip that came with the spear, as it seemed to be more hydrodynamic and therefore gave the spear a tad more reach and accuracy.
I only used this tip twich, and speared about 5 fish around 25cm. 2/3 barbs have already snapped and broken. the tip can no longer hold fish.
