Rating: Lighter and more compact than shaker sticks. Easily heard underwater.
Reviewer: Willis Chung
We took a pair of these to Bonaire for a week of diving, and my son and I were able to hear these at a range of 50 feet or so while wearing hoods. There were times when we didnt hear each other, but it seemed to happen less often compared to using our shaker sticks. Went down to 105 with these without a problem. The advantages over shaker sticks: much lighter, easier to find the unit to signal (screwed in to one of the shoulder strap D-ring pulls), easier to signal for a long time, can signal and do other things at same time (take pictures, look for slate to write something, etc) Disadvantages compared to a shaker stick: accidental activation in and out of the water (I tape a Snapple or other similar bottle top over the activation button for transport in the plane), batteries could be dead when you need it (true of anything electronic). I have been looking for ways to reduce the weight of our gear since we have been slowly but steadily adding things to our BCDs. These are much lighter than the shaker sticks with retractable leashes we usually carry and are much more compact as well. Kudos to Scuba.coms customer support. One unit of the pair arrived defective and Scuba.com shipped out a replacement overnight via FedEx in time for our trip to Bonaire. The defective unit was immediately obvious: it would only make a weak, choking chicken sound after pushing the button 10 times or so, and there was something rattling around inside when I shook the unit. Thanks Scuba.com!

Rating: Very happy with the Buddy Call
Reviewer: Dawn W.
My husband and I used the Buddy Call every time we snorkeled on our recent sailing week in the Caribbean. Since it was just the two of us, we needed a way to keep in touch underwater - especially when the swells made it difficult to see each other on the surface. The fish/turtles/stingrays/squid/octopi did not seem disturbed by the sound - underwater, it sounds like a big persistent bird. You push the button to turn it on and push again to turn it off - this allows you to customize the calls if you want. We used it to signal: come look, take a photograph, where are you?, lets surface to talk, and ready to head back to the very far away boat. We will use the Buddy Call every time we snorkel - LOVE it. At first I thought the price was a bit steep, but after using it, for us it was worth every penny we paid.
