Spearfishing mask, how to make the right choice?
To choose your spearfishing mask, four criteria can be considered:
The internal volume of the spearfishing mask: This is the main quality of a spearfishing mask. Indeed, a spearfishing mask with small volume contains less air and therefore obliges the spearfisher to balance the pressure deeper, if necessary. (Example: The Micromask mask Aqualung, spearfishing mask Zero3 Omer...)
The field of view of spearfishing mask: the underwater vision of spearfishing mask field is also a quality point, which goes often hand in hand with low volume. Some spearfishing mask as such as Cressi Nano provide an excellent field of vision.
The colour of the spearfishing mask: Not only wetsuits, but also masks need to be adapted to the spearfishing environment. Therefore a big range of different shades of mimetic (camo) masks do excist, in top of the black spearfishings masks.
The colour of the spearfishing mask glasses: some brands of spearfishing mask offer tinted or mirror glasses, as the Star Elite spearfishing mask Mares for example, in order to prevent the fish cross your eyes. However this effect does have an impact on the brightness of your view under water towards the seabed. Others masks, such as the spearfishing mask DeepSub by Epsealon (former Esclapez), provide a slightly red tinted glass exterior and yellow glass interior to avoid a seabed in the dark.
