Innovative Compass Slate Reviews

Reviewer: David Smith on 11/26/2008

Good Compass and Slate Combo - This is a good slate and compass combo. You can write on both sides with the attached pencil. With the locking retractor is keeps it out of the way until needed, but handy when you are ready to use it without tugging on you all the time. The only downside is that the compass must be almost perfectly level to use, if it is tilted too much then the dial hangs up on itself and then isnt accurate. For the price it is a good compass, to get 5 starts it would have to allow reading when more out-of-level (but would then cost significantly more, at least when compared to similar compasses).

Large but strong retractor - I bought this retractor after having wasted my money on two other ones that were not capable of holding my computer off the ground while walking to the water. This one is definitely stronger than most and works well. With my Aeris ai (air integrated computer with compass module) the computer hangs with about 1/2" of line extended out from the base of the retractor. Previously the computer would hang on about 6" of line and swing around. It is strong enough to do the job but not so strong as to be an annoyance. My only complaint is that I thought it was one of the smaller retractors when looking at the picture online. It is a pretty large unit- probably about 3/4 of the size of...View Full Review

XS Scuba Flashlight / Camera Retractor Review - $32.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - 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...View Full Review

Reviewer: russ walby on 4/1/2013

A must have retractor! - I am so glad that ever after the price of this item I went ahead & got this retractor. The cord is plenty long enough and the power this has to hold what ever you chose in its place untill you trully need it. As far as being able to rely on it functioning with sand, salt or what ever you encounter & get on it / in it theres zero percent chance of it hanging up or getting stuck on you since it self cleans as its oppend and retracted. It comes with multiple anchor/fastners so you can mount it almost anywhere youd like. Cant say enough on what a great product this is. An absolute must have for the serious diver.

Strong and Sturdy - I bought this as a replacement to the very same model. Ive had the original one for about 150 dives. It’s attached to my pressure gauge consol. It’s attached to my BC on the inside of a pocket and the cord runs out though a brass grommet. I had to retire the original because the cord got frayed over time. The cord was so tough it actually cut clean through the metal grommet before noticed it. Very impressive!

Reviewer: Joseph Johnson on 2/10/2007

Works well, light spring - Although I love the length of the cable and it works well with no hang-ups, the spring tension on this retractor is very light, not suitable for computers or guages. Use with signal devices or other light accessories is about its limit.

Innovative Retractible Compass - The photo makes it appear that is small, however it is a full size compass and a full size retractable unit. I was expecting something smaller and less cumbersome. I havent used it yet but the arrow seems to be pointing North, so Im sure it will perform just fine.
