Advice - best (and value) reel for a teak triggerless speargun

Please can I have some advice on the best reel for attaching to a teak sling. In truth I manage quite well without as the sling has a line release which I use rigged with a 4.5m length of 0.5mm dyneema core line attached to a 150cm Tahitian spear (modified for a slip-ring). OK for most UK spearfish but I fancy having a bit more play on the line when I get lucky with a large bass or mullet!


The underside of the sling (see pictures) is (WxL): 5cm x 8cm. The total wight of the sling is 600g and she it pretty buoyant.

Total dimensions are (WxHxL): 6.2cm x 6.5cm x 28cm

I would like to attach with screws rather than a band and use in conjunction with the line release.

Any advice would be appreciated. Photos linked to my album so sorry there are rather a lot!

Best wishes from South Wales, UK
