The hawaiian sling utilizes a basic design similar to an underwater slingshot. In the Bahamas, the pole spear and the hawaiian sling are the only legal tools to spearfish underwater. It's the most primitive of underwater weapons and is still used by islanders today as a means to catch their fish. Slings are made out of different material including wood, plastic, and steel. A latex rubber tube is attached to the base sling and is pulled back with a limited range depending upon the user. Typically, you must get very close to the fish to spear it.
