Reviewer: Patrick W.
I was surprised at the size of the freedom 7 when I unpackaged it and was concerned about how the meter long tail would perform in the kelp beds of Southern California. However, I was pleasantly surprised after my first spearfishing session with it. It didnt get wrapped up in the kelp one bit. The tail has some rigidity to it. It wrapped up in my float line once or twice but it was not a huge deal. The ankle strap is very comfortable over a wetsuit and I barely noticed the main unit. Im sure it may be more noticeable when skinning it in warmer water. Occasionally, the tail of the unit touched my leg or back and would send a jolt of electricity to that muscle group. Its not painful, just surprising. It felt akin to electro stimulus therapy for strained muscles. After I made some minor tweaks to my duck dive and body position underwater it was no longer an issue. The peace of mind that the shark shield gives me, especially in sharky conditions with bloody fish, outweighs any minor discomfort I experienced.

The shield works. great to have in clear or murky water. You dont have to turn it on if you choose not to. Have not noticed that it repells reef fish or disturbs them in any way. Well made by a very responsive and responsible company. great product!

I am still not quite sure about this. Everwhere that I have read claims it to be the best thing. I can say that I have used this about 7 times now and I have only encountered one small white tip shark but was by the time I got into the water it was already gone. So I guess I can say that it does work(cause I have not seen a shark near me). We have a lot of different sharks here in Kwajalein Atoll. Hopefully when I get into deeper waters I will be able to test it better. No drag & compfortable! After a while I do not realize that it is there. Have not got it tangled either! But it surely has boosted my confidence in the waters!!

Lots of piece of mind with this item. It also kept barracuda at a safe distance (they were just curious, I think). My partner wore it for a bit, but kept shocking herself. I wore it without issue, just keep the "tail" stretched out as much as possible, dont let it coil back on you! The ankle wrap was comfortable, and I barely noticed it was there. Quality product! I would recommend.
