Rating: XS Scuba Flashlight / Camera Retractor Review - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: Brad K.
The XS Scuba retractor works exactly as advertised. I am actually using it for my dive computer and find that it is perfect for this application. You have the ability to lock the retractor so that it remains in any position. I have not tried to use this with anything heavier, but I can say that the tension and strength of the retractor mechanism is very good. Hope this helps...

Rating: Works as intended
Reviewer: Michael Dyer
I used this product to attach my mid sized flashlight to my BCD for deep day dives. It is made of good quality material and attaches easily. Kept my light always right there where needed. Originally purchased for my go pro, but now its multi-tasking. The only thing I would change was the overall size is big. I wish it were smaller with the same retracting power.

Rating: Very Strong and Durable Feeling
Reviewer: B J Ogden  -  View all my reviews
Just got a couple of these in a few days ago. I will be using mine mainly to attach a GoPro HD Camera to my BC. From the looks of it, it will handle the job just fine. The whole thing feels like it is good quality and I really like the lock mechanism it has. I would definitely recommend this if you have a heavier item you need to secure. The only downside is it is a little expensive. I guess you get what you pay for though.

Rating: Used for my Olympus Underwater Camera and Housing
Reviewer: Edward Pritchard  -  View all my reviews
I used this product to attach my Olympus Under water housing,camera and strobe to my BC while diving. It is made of good quality material ( mostly plastic) and attaches/de-attaches from the D-ring fairly easy. There were times I had to let the camera go and was easily able to retrieve it and either hand it to someone on the boat or go back to shooting pictures. The action of the string is smooth and does not bind up. I think the price is a little high, but a good product none the less .

Rating: excellent device
Reviewer: Ginger C.
I used this retractor for attaching my GoPro while diving. It worked great, my hands were free when I wasnt shooting, and the device has a very sturdy feel to it, not flimsy at all.
