Reviewer: John Robinson on 1/1/2015Arm Slate - I bought this item for my Son who is a cable installer. He stopped at our house one day on his lunch break. It had been raining and his pants were soaked. While he ate lunch, we dried his clothes. He had written information on his hand with a permanent marker to remember some figures need for work. He said this was the only way he could do it in the rain, because paper and pen were useless given the conditions. We decided to find a solution and came up with your arm slate. When I was young I took scuba lessons, but never followed through because of the expense and the region where I reside. I do some snorkeling in Hawaii and my wife now likes to snorkel even though she does not...View Full Review
Reviewer: David Smith on 11/26/2008Good 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).
Reviewer: Jan Factor on 1/24/2015good product, bad pencils - I have both Quest slates, this large one and the mini. The mini is nice because it easily fits into a BC pocket. The large one is good for groups because it is easier to read. As far as I know, it is the only product of its kind. HOWEVER, the magnetic pencil leaves something to be desired. When you get a good one, they work fine. But after a while, the magnetic tip may fall off, and nobody seems to sell a replacement pencil. When I bought this slate, the pencil barely worked. When I used the pencil from my Quest mini, it worked fine. If Scuba.com is reading, please send me a replacement pencil, or replace the entire unit.
Reviewer: Paul M. on 4/11/2013Didnt Actually Buy This Slate - Scuba.com was out of stock - 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...View Full Review
Reviewer: HENRY FONT on 8/29/2007The best slate around! - i really like this slate because you can use the magnetic slate side to write (and erase messages) quickly and you can also use the plastic slate (in the opposite side) for information that you want to keep. the slate folds in such a way that a cover protects the magnetic side when it is not in use. the size of the slate is perfect to fit inside "dive rite waist pockets". the slate comes with a stylus/pencil use the stylus for the magnetic side of the slate, and use the pencil for the plastic side of the slate.
Reviewer: John Magruther on 9/13/2014NAUI Over-sized Divemaster Air Dive Table Review - $23.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - Two buddy divers can easily view the chart while planning the dive. A simple black grease pencil can eliminate "Letter" slippage. All the proper information is easy to see and understand. The reverse side is great for showing the times, depths, and Letters for a safe dive. Plan the dive and dive the plan. Well worth the cost! JV Magruther
