Rating: Must-have accessory
Reviewer: Marco S.,  - View all my reviews
Ever lost track of your buddy? Needed help? Wanted to direct your groups attention to some critter? This little guy will do the trick, with the magnetic cap serving as an easy on-off mechanism so you dont make any noise unless you really want to.

Rating: Small and effective
Reviewer: Jeannie Lambert,  - View all my reviews
This is so much better than when people tap their tanks with their metal pointers. When that happens, everyone is confused, because at any given time, there may be other dive groups. So the tapping all sound the same. This rattle stick, however, produces a unique sound. Above water, it sounds like the Salvation Army bell. Under water, it omits an audible but not-in-your-face ring. Its small and made with durable metal. Easily attaches to anything.

Rating: XS Scuba Rattle Stick great item
Reviewer: Daniel M.,  - View all my reviews
Other than I sound like the Salvation Army bell ringer at Christmas time, as I walk accross the boat. I am very impressed and happy with this item. It does sound like the bell from the red pots at the salvation army ringers above water. It make a very good audable sound that can be heard and noticed under water. Would recomend this item.

Rating: Great little attentinon-getter
Reviewer: Robin Powell,  - View all my reviews
My husband could never hear tank-tappin for attention - he said all he hears are bubbles! I got this rattle stick hoping hed be able to hear it and he DOES! Plus its not hard for me to use it where as the tank banging was ackward for me whether with a bungee ball or other instrument. I love my little rattle stick!

Rating: Ease of Underwater Communications
Reviewer: Yoshi Tsuha,
We have used allot of different in water sound devices and the XS Scuba Rattle Stick has a distinct sound unlike any other. We operate a dive boat for the military here on Okinawa Japan and use the rattle sticks for all customers and as a means of gaining attention between one another. The Rattle Stick works great, simple to use and works well even with the engines running above. The sound is sufficient to even use as a recall device... Great Product...

Rating: Rattlestick ineffective
Reviewer: Alvin Sarter,  - View all my reviews
could barely hear the rattle underwater so dont waste your money also, if you hook it on to your bc, it rattles all the time and if you keep it in your bc pocket, inaccessible.
