Scuba Dive Flag and Float Reviews

Scuba Dive Flag and Float Reviews    Dive Flag and Float

Reviewer: Jeff Baker on 8/24/2008

Failed During First Dive - The Good: The product design is great for the ease of portability. I travel by kayak to my favorite snorkeling spots and it takes up almost no room in my dive bag. The Bad: The product design is terrible based on the choice of material and manufacturing method. The plastic flag is spot-welded (e.g. melted) to the plastic flag stick. On my unit, the bottom weld was too deep and crimped the flag stick. Within an hour of use on the very first dive the flag stick failed at the crimp and flopped over like a dead fish making the flag virtually invisible to approaching boats. Not good. Upon returning home, I shoved a length of heavy gauge wire through the hollow plastic flag to give it...View Full Review

Trident Buddy Call Underwater Signaling Device Reviews

Trident Buddy Call Underwater Signaling Device Reviews    Buddy Call Underwater Signaling Device

Reviewer: Willis Chung on 3/31/2014

Lighter and more compact than shaker sticks. Easily heard underwater. - 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...View Full Review

Shark Shield Freedom 7 Reviews

Reviewer: Patrick W. on 6/22/2014

Shark Shield Freedom 7 Review - $649.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I was surprised at the size of the freedom 7 when I unpackaged it and was concerned about how the meter long tail would perform in the kelp beds of Southern California. However, I was pleasantly surprised after my first spearfishing session with it. It didnt get wrapped up in the kelp one bit. The tail has some rigidity to it. It wrapped up in my float line once or twice but it was not a huge deal. The ankle strap is very comfortable over a wetsuit and I barely noticed the main unit. Im sure it may be more noticeable when skinning it in warmer water. Occasionally, the tail of the unit touched my leg or back and would send a jolt of electricity to that muscle group. Its not painful, just...View Full Review

XS Scuba Safety Sausage  (SMB) Reviews

XS Scuba Safety Sausage (SMB) Reviews    Safety Sausage  (SMB)

Reviewer: Mary Salaja on 5/12/2008

safety sausage - As a 6 safety sausage it is easy to inflate and very visible in high seas. However, the wind can blow it over, making it hard to stay upright. I attached one of my spare weights to it to hold it down in the water. This allowed the inflated tube to stay upright without me holding it. I also wanted to get at it quickly, so I rolled it up and put a velcro strap around it. The velcro is permanently attached to my BC pocket. The sausage is now easy to unroll in the water and the weight fits in the bag that comes with it. All was attached to my BC with the sturdy harden plastic clip. I am satisfied with the product. I may attach a dive emblem on it, some time in the future. The tube takes the...View Full Review

Innovative Signal Mirror Reviews

Innovative Signal Mirror Reviews    Signal Mirror

Reviewer: Ray H Gray III on 7/5/2008

A must have survival accessory - small, compact, and effective. as a former navy aircraft carrier pilot i know the necessity of open water survival gear and the need to communicate your presence over a large distance. between march and june 2008 there were 7 instances in the media where divers were left floating in open water for 3 to 60 hours. in the vast ocean, you have three basic concerns staying afloat, staying alive, and being seen. in the daytime, a survival mirror transforms your visual presence from an invisible black dot on the surface of the ocean to a bright dot visible out to ten miles! all the above divers reported seeing rescue craft looking for them but could not get their attention. when you practice...View Full Review

XS Scuba Rattle Stick with Attachment Clip Reviews

XS Scuba Rattle Stick with Attachment Clip Reviews    Rattle Stick with Attachment Clip

Reviewer: Scott Johnson on 4/15/2014

Rattle for underwater noise works well - We ordered this because my wife doesnt like to use a carabiner to tap her tank for an underwater noise signal. It clipped on a D-Ring and was easy to use and stow. The noise was not terribly loud but produced a distinctive noise so we always knew it was her originating the signal. Good product at good pricepoint.

Ideations Surface & Underwater Air Horn Dive Alert Plus V.2 Reviews    Surface & Underwater Air Horn Dive Alert Plus V.2

Reviewer: R Timothy Fitzner on 2/17/2014

Horn review - Works just fine. No problems at all. Puts a small bulge/loop in my air hose but does not interfere. Happy with the purchase. A breeze to install. Easy to remove too. Used it many times underwater. distinctive sound. My brother found it very useful as no one else had it, found it helpful to localize me when I used it. Hope to never have to use it above water.

Nautilus Lifeline GPS Radio for Scuba Divers Reviews

Nautilus Lifeline GPS Radio for Scuba Divers Reviews    Lifeline GPS Radio for Scuba Divers

Reviewer: L. L. on 5/8/2014

Compact all purpose survival radio and GPS - I used to carry a water resistant VHF radio in a big underwater light case, but this unit is much more compact and versatile. It also has a GPS which can pinpoint my location and can call for help. The price is very reasonable for saving my life. My wife likes these features, too!

XS Scuba SMB Rescue Kit Reviews

XS Scuba SMB Rescue Kit Reviews    SMB Rescue Kit

Reviewer: Marco L. on 1/20/2013

Excellent products! - As a new Dive Master, safety is the top priority. I bought this product as the SMB comes with a complete set with Light Stick, Compass, Whistle, Signal Mirror and a Buddy Connector. Recalled my recent night dive with group of divers, we were drifted away due to surface current, thanks to the highly visible SMB, combined with loud whistle and torch the signal mirror with my dive torch, the boatman spotted us within seconds from far.... I highly recommending to all divers to dive with this product. The only drawback of this product is the compass in this set is not working however I always dive with my wristband compass.
