Sharkbanz at Tackle World

Sharkbanz – An Active Shark Deterrent

Sharkbanz 2 Wearable & Sharkbanz Fishing – Zeppelin
We are very excited to stock Sharkbanz in our Tackle World stores.
Sharkbanz has provided peace of mind for ocean lovers, from surfers, swimmers, snorkelers, divers, spearfishers and anglers for 10 years. Sharkbanz’s patented magnetic technology is the result of long-term scientific research and testing. Sharkbanz utilizes powerful permanent magnets to create an effective shark deterrent that’s always on and requires no batteries or charging. When sharks approach Sharkbanz, they detect the device’s strong electromagnetic field, which provides a sudden sensation that is thousands of times stronger than the signal produced by anything in a shark’s normal food chain. Consequently, sharks are deterred away from Sharkbanz. This cause and effect is analogous to having a bright light suddenly shined in your eyes in a dark room. You would not be hurt, but you would want to turn away.

Sharks use this sense to locate objects nearby, and it becomes vital when they cannot depend on vision alone. In the surf zone, the water is murky, and people and sharks are sharing the same space. Most shark bites occur in these hard-to-see conditions. People are not on shark’s food menus, but when their electrical sense alerts them to potential prey in their area, they are likely to investigate. Remember: sharks don’t have hands, so they use their mouths to feel. This is why the majority of shark bites are “hit-and-run” attacks, meaning the shark bites, then quickly leaves after it recognizes someone isn’t food. Unfortunately, a simple case of mistaken identity can do a lot of damage. Sharkbanz warns curious sharks that the wearer is not food before they bite, reducing the risk of hit and run attacks.
