Rating: Great reel
Reviewer: Eddie M.
I use this as an anchor line for my kayak, and it works great,. It helps to keep things neat in the small space. As for the reel itself, it has a good ratchet action , free spools well, and winds up easily. It is very well made and seem that it will hold up well.

Reviewer: Bruce M.
I purchased 2 of these to use as anchor lines for my 15 ft fishing kayaks. So far they have done the trick! Keeps line in place both on the boat and in the water. Ratchet allows you to let out just enough line, so you never have to deal with anchor line tangles again! Love it!

Rating: Affordable purchase
Reviewer: Gerald H.
This is a nice dive reel. I primarily use it for my safety sausage, due to not being cave certified. The reel itself is a little large, however, I have not had any problems with tangling, bird nesting, etc. This reel is a an excellent purchase for the price, especially if you dont find yourself using it on every dive.

Rating: You Get What You Pay For
Reviewer: Jeff D.
I found the reel to be in good working order...it is a better float reel than a cavern safety reel. If you want a float reel this will be a good purchase. If you want a cavern safety reel I think you should invest a little more money and get a quality reel.

Rating: Good entry level reel
Reviewer: Michael Smith  -  View all my reviews
Im an active instructor and was looking for a reel to use for teaching nav and wreck penetration. This is certainly not of Dive Rite or Hollis quality, but it is perfectly fine for navigation. I would be hesitant to use it for deep wreck penetration, but its fine for basics and teaching. First thing to do is lay it out and mark every 5ft, with a different color, mark 15ft, 50ft and 100ft. Just remember, wrapping it around the wreck shortens the measured distance.

Rating: Recommended by a friend, Purchased for safety!
Reviewer: Frank Ostermiller
I was recently in Cozumel, and I had a reel on my BC that was fairly new. When I splashed, the reel went to free mode, ran out about 30 feet of line before I noticed it and got tangled in the boat prop! Luckily the prop wasnt turning, or I could have been sucked into it. Right then and there I decided to invest in a better reel. This reel has a click latch that prevents unwanted unreeling. It has a heavier line than my old reel, and I believe it will stand up to the test of time. I must confess I looked at this reel when I purchased my old one, but I chose to save about five dollars. I know now that five dollars could have meant my life! Better equipment means better safety!

Rating: Best reel for the price
Reviewer: Benjamin Kim
Its not that expensive and has a good line guide with spool prevention. The only problem Id had with it is that the line got severed, and I had to surface to fix it using a screwdriver. It got all tangled up. Other than the line problem incident, its been great since then. All my other friends got the cheap finger reels. I see that they have to be extra careful to not get them tangled, but they still manage to get them tangled every so often. This is my reel of choice without breaking the bank.
