Scuba Gear Reviews by Nancy Frazee
Rating: Mares Brass Mini Gauge Perfect 02/17/2009
Basically, I wanted to settup my 19cu ft pony to be attached to my main tank. I didnt want a tiny button gauge that I couldnt see once the tank was mounted to my back. I also wanted to keep my configuration simple, inexpensive, and clean. This gauge suits my purposes very well. I simply clip it off to my left upper d- ring and it is there for nice easy access and clear reading. Depending upon where you decide to mount the gauge, the hose may be a bit too short, but in my case it is fine.
Rating: Safety Sausage Issues 11/18/2006
I recently purchased the safety sausage with the intention to deploy under the surface to signal boats that I was coming up rather than carrying my dive flag on this particular lake I dive. I find that the mouthpiece is difficult to pull out with gloves on. Also, the carrying bag is a bit too small for my liking in regards to "putting it all back together again". It may be more appropriate to deploy in a warm water environment at the surface with no gloves.
Princeton Tec Shockwave II Light
Rating: Princeton Tec Rocks 11/18/2006
I recently was looking to purchase an inexpensive but reliable primary light for night diving. I do mostly salt and freshwaterwater shore diving in the Northeast. The Shockwave 11 fit right into that category. It is built well, easy to use, and comfortable to carry. Also, service with Scuba was excellent with it being shipped on the same day, arriving to my doorstep in three.
