Spearpoint Grapnel


The Spearpoint grapnel consists of a shank with five prongs with reinforced tips.

Spearpoints vary in size and hence seabed penetration. The three sizes normally used are the 115kgs, 180kgs and 250kgs depending on the penetrable seabeds where some resistance maybe experienced.

Spearpoints are often used at the end of a Rennie and Gifford rig or have a Rennie and Gifford reversed rigged.
