Right now my mom is testing the normal harpoon and the barb tail, shes gonna do 5 of ech and then average the trips together and then substract the barb-tail from the normal to see how much time it saves. If anyone else wants to post test results do so :0.

Thats what they meant by better because it doesn't take up invitory space. I'll find the qoute.







The harpoon itself is a much more efficient version of the normal harpoon, as it can be equipped, freeing up one extra space in your inventory.

The barbtail harpoon is a reward from deadfall hunting, once you have trapped and killed a barbtailed kebbit. The harpoon itself is a much more efficient version of the normal harpoon, as it can be equipped, freeing up one extra space in your inventory.

of the 3 people on this thread who have posted, i bet NONE have seen or used a barb tailed harpoon much less seen it compared in anyway shape or form to the normal harpoon.











the barbtailed harpoon DOES INDEED FISH FASTER, want me to prove it? cuz i can. the animation of dipping the harpoon into the water is like 1.25% faster then the normal harpoon, coupled with the +1 inventory space this thing is a keeper.

Does the animation have to do with whether you catch the fishes faster or not?







Anyway I don't fish a lot but if the fact these harpoons catch fish faster are true, that would be good news to fishermen :)
