Scuba Gear Reviews by Alfred Garren

Mares Surface Marker Buoy (SMB)
Rating: Mares-Surface-Marker-Buoy-SMB Effective but awkward 08/13/2009

This SMB is easily seen on the surface but it is awkward to carry. Keeping it inside the supplied carrying bag makes it too large to fit in most BCD pockets, if you snap the bag on the outside it dangles and creates drag. If the manufacturer had provided a velcro tie on the SMB it could be rolled up and stored in a BCD pocket more easily but they did not. The line supplied is worthless so plan on replacinging it.

XS Scuba 95/108/119/120/121/199/130 Cf Steel Tank Boot
Rating: XS-Scuba-95-108-119-120-121-199-130-Cf-Steel-Tank-Boot Steel tank boot 10/27/2006

The boot doesnt quite have enough inside lip to keep the domed bottom of my Faber 117 steel tanks from touching the ground but it is a big improvement over the lame rubber ones that came on the tank.
