Rating: Shockwave II Dive Light
Reviewer: John Neff  -  View all my reviews
Good product, but the three position switch is a bit difficult to use, especially with gloves keeping it from being a great product. The light beam (on high) is bright, but fairly broad, certainly not a spot light, which makes the rated brightness a bit mis-leading. Has a long battery life. All in all a good product well worth the money, but a better switch would be a great improvement.

Rating: Great Light
Reviewer: Bernie Loewen  -  View all my reviews
I am extremely pleased with the intensity of this light. I dive a local lake that has poor visibility at best, and this light gives just what is needed to be comfortable in the dive and allow me to find my way around. A great light at a really great price.

Rating: Fantastic
Reviewer: Sean McSharry
Took this on a night dive in Cozumel. This thing throws out a massive amount of light. One thing that is important to note is that this is more of a flood light than a spot. Used with my Princeton Torrent LED which is a great combo as the LED is much more focused.

Rating: Well Worth It!
Reviewer: Ryan R.
For as cheap as the light was (around $50 cheaper than other similar models), the light has worked WONDERFULLY! Great spot beam for keeping track of my buddy on night dives, and I love the low and hi options - the hi brings out every color imaginable, even in the darkest little crevices.

Rating: Did the job
Reviewer: kasey s.
I needed a light for snorkeling in 3-6 feet of water, looking for spiny lobster in Southern CA. This light did the job. This light, on the "high" setting, gave me an excellent view of everything within 5 feet. Visibility can be somewhat poor in the location I was in, so 5-6 feet was about the limit of any light. I like its smaller size for getting into all the tight places while searching for lobster. I would definitely recommend this light to a friend. Good light at a good price.

Rating: Good not Great
Reviewer: Mike Mitchell
It is very handy, it isnt big and bulky so it allows for easy entry and exit of wrecks. The two different beams are a nice feature, the low beam is nice so you dont have to burn it out with just one high beam,and it is always nice to know going into a wreck that if it is to dark for the low beam, you always have the high beam to fall back on.

Reviewer: john DENT  -  View all my reviews
this is a good dive light but what makes it really excellent is the company backup. if it breaks, they will send you a new one. whether it be airport baggage handling or you it off of a cliff, they dont care. the one i have is brand new, but a dive buddy of mine who is an instructor and owns a dive shop in florida only carries this brand.

I USED THIS FOR A WEEK IN MEXICO, AND FOUND THAT ITS INTENSITY WAS AS GOOD OR BETTER THAN ALL THE OTHER LIGHTS PRESENT. I LIKED THE TWO LEVEL SWITCH WHICH TOOK A LITTLE GETTING USED TO BUT WORKED WELL. I USED IT ON TWO NIGHT DIVES BUT USED IT ON ALL OF THE DAY TIME DIVES AS WELL. GREAT FOR LOOKING BACK INTO CAVES AND GROTTOS. I SAW MANY NEAT CREATURES I HAD MISSED IN THE PAST. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. STEVE

For the price, this light cant be beat! It has a nice feel underwater, and has given me no problems. I had previously owned 2 of these, but a friend got excited shooting his first flounder and left 1 on the bottom (somewhere around the rocks at Indian River, DE) I picked up a couple more to have an extra. A good buy and fast shipping!

Rating: Princeton Tec Shockwave II Light
Reviewer: Christopher C.
Im quit happy with the Princeton Tec Shockwave II Light. I bought 2, one for me and my wife. They were a bit smaller than I expected but that means they pack well. Also the 2 stage switch I found to be quite handy. While in transit from location to location under water while not looking at any thing specific you can keep the light on low beam, extending the life of the batteries. When you come upon something interesting you can easily flip the switch to high beam which seemes better than day light. I highly recommend these lights...

Reviewer: Nancy Frazee  -  View all my reviews
I recently was looking to purchase an inexpensive but reliable primary light for night diving. I do mostly salt and freshwaterwater shore diving in the Northeast. The Shockwave 11 fit right into that category. It is built well, easy to use, and comfortable to carry. Also, service with Scuba was excellent with it being shipped on the same day, arriving to my doorstep in three.
