Rating: Handy little slate
Reviewer: Jonathan Seckler,  - View all my reviews
only ding id give is for the plastic tubing that connects the marker to the slate its not as secure as id like. the pencil came off between dives and when i tried to reconnect it, the plastic tubing frayed.

Rating: Just the right size!
Reviewer: jean-pierre d.,  - View all my reviews
This slate Mares writing slate is the perfect solution for those wanting to pass along highly detailed and specific information to other divers, be it on technical dives / underwater construction tasks such as the current project Im on. Accropodes are not the easiest things to work with / around, however if you remove the extra stress that comes with not being able to communicate clearly, then thats always a plus!

Rating: Didnt Actually Buy This Slate - Scuba.com was out of stock
Reviewer: Paul M.,  - View all my reviews
The title says it. This was one of several items for which Scuba.com was out of stock and backordered so long they cancelled the item from my order. At least for this item, Scuba.com let me know it was delayed. Some other items were delayed, so my whole order was delayed without any communication, even though I paid extra for "3-day delivery". I guess that means 3 days after they finally get around to assembling the order and seeing if some items will come back into stock. The Mares slate is probably just fine, but it seems peculiar to be prompted by Scuba.com email to write a review for products they cancelled from my order for being out of stock and backordered. Very unpleased with Scuba.com on delaying shipment without notice, essentially wasting the extra shipping I paid for expedited delivery.

Rating: Worked as expected
Reviewer: David Sieputowski,  - View all my reviews
Used on a night dive to remember coordinates.Good visually and there was no wash out. Cleaned up fairly well.Of course, you really should use a retractor with it to get best result.

Rating: writing slate very handy
Reviewer: Cheryl Twaddell,  - View all my reviews
I used this slate on a recent dive trip to BVI. The dive master actually used it more than me to communicate with us. Very easy to attach and carry with you. Very handy. The only draw back seems to be in the erasing what you wrote dept. It does not come clean easily. Very worth the minimum amount of money it cost.

Reviewer: Craig Walker,
This is exactly what I was looking for. The slate is easy to use, easy for other divers to see, and attaches in a way that does not restrict or encumber the diver. Higly recommend!
