This combined iki spike and stringer allows you to quickly dispatch your catch and safely store it.
The Japanese technique of ikijime involves driving a spike into the brain of a fish to kill it quickly and humanely, which preserves the quality of the meat. This iki spike features the same tri-cut tip as Rob Allen's spears making it easy to punch through the brain case of even the biggest beast!
Stringers are used to secure your catch onto a float which keeps them (and any inquisitive sharks) away from your person. This stringer is a plastic coated steel cable for unmatched durability - you would expect nothing less from Rob Allen.
The fish is threaded onto a stringer either through the eyes or through the gills and out of the mouth. The iki spike is then flipped 90 degrees to the cable to lock the catch on.
This tool can also be used to secure a burley to the kelp or a float line so that it does not get dragged away by rays and sharks.
