Rating: Perfect Just In case SMB
Reviewer: Cesar A.  -  View all my reviews
I bought this SMB for a trip to Roatan and increase my confidence. it is perfect, it is small comes with a pouch easy to carry and can be put in a pocket of the BCD or clipped to it. I deployed it twice once for practice and once to complete a deco obligation longer that all my diving group it has easy to deploy and gave me the confidence to stay in my stop even when everyone else was outside the water already. totally recommended.

Rating: Good for extremely calm waters or lakes.
Reviewer: Daniel A.
This is a solid deco marker. I have used the rope that came with it since I lost my spool. Works well once you reach 25ft or less. In rough waters its a little hard to see over waves. I would recommend this for lake diving or extremely calm waters.

    How is this safety marker inflated? Im looking for one that can be inflated using my octopus, not an oral inflated. Any suggestions? Thanks, Frank.
