The NEW RAIDER Mid-Handle Series


The New RAIDER pays tribute to the history of blue water hunting speargun design. Using its forerunner the RIFFE Blue Water Elite, as an origin point, our Team led the development challenge with an emphasis on increasing accuracy, shooting range, and maneuverability to produce the next mid-handle generation. A refined evolutionary design embodies power and adaptability with its commanding mass, integrated full body length wings, new ABS (Adjustable Ballast System), high impact and distinct shape. The RAIDER is the true pinnacle of craftsmanship, efficacy and what big spearfishing dreams are made of.

Kimi Werner filets a fish on the shore of Indonesia
In Jay’s days of participating in spearfishing competitions, he eventually felt sorrow by the amount of fish that were taken, both large and small. Jay recognized the devastating effects. There would be none left for the future generations. This shaped his vision to adopt the practice of taking only what is needed for consumption.

“All divers should protect the waters they swim and hunt in, ensuring future divers the experience and excitement of freediving that I’ve had over the past seventy years. I strive to produce high quality, spearfishing and diving equipment capable of handling any condition."

"Selective Divers set their sights on those few prize fish for consumption. Be Selective, Fish for the Future.”  – Jay Riffe
