The ranseur is a 17th century variant of the spetum. The side blades on the ranseur had backward protuding hooks that could catch on a horseman's armor and pull him from the saddle. Sometimes the ranseur is just considered another variant of the spetum, but most people consider it sufficiently different enough to have its own classification.
