How to choose a mask - Diversworld Spearfishing Scuba Diving Snorkelling Cairns Australia

Spearfishing Masks are one of the most important parts of your gear, and finding a mask that works for you is essential.

Buying your new mask is exciting but can also be overwhelming with so many options. Of course it should fit you well, however here’s a few other things to consider:

When choosing your mask, low volume is great as this will require less equalising of your mask at depth.

At the same time, it is more streamlined and creates less drag in the water. Low volume masks will also still providing an excellent field of vision as their lenses sit closer to your eyes.

Another bonus of low volume masks is that they allow better access to the nose pocket, making equalising easier. Plus, they packs lighter, perfect for traveling.

Lastly, if you have imperfect vision, then do check out our range of masks with prescription lenses, it’ll make such a positive difference for your underwater experience. After all, the underwater scenery is exactly the reason why you are diving. 

Make sure to also check out the video of freediving instructor and spearo Roberto Berto talking about which masks he likes best.


Bonus: Mask Maintenance

Before taking your new mask out for a dive, make sure to clear the silicone factory seal from the lens of your spearfishing mask, otherwise the mask will always fog up, no matter how much defog solution or spit you rub into it.

To remove the silicone, use a buffer or toothpaste to remove the silicone. Rub it into the lens, let it set for a few minutes, then rinse it off. Repeat twice and you’re all set.
