The LiMARĀ® Centre Spear is used during fishing operations primarily to retrieve tightly compacted, parted slickline or braided cable to surface.

The Centre Spear is generally used when a traditional wire grab has been unsuccessful. The barbs, positioned around a centre mandrel allow for a more efficient penetration into a tight ball of wire, compared to the pronged arm style of a wire grab. As the Centre Spear is effectively non-releasable, it is generally run with a disconnect arrangement directly above it to provide a release feature if the parted wire cannot be retrieved back to surface.
