Scuba Gear Reviews by Marty Russell
Rating: Excellent 10/6/2008
Bag is very strong. Hols my 36lbs no problem at all. Couls even hold more. The wide handle makes it easy to carry comfortably. Water drains out the bottom drain holes, so I just leave the weights in the bag after a dive. Makes shore diving just a little easier.
Scuba Titanium BC Knife
Rating: Nice and compact. 10/6/2008
Fits nice as a back-up on my BC. Just make sure its locked in the sheath well! The Scuba.com logos on the handle keep falling off, but no big deal. The blade is sharp, and titanium is always the way to go. Price is right to. Serves its purpose well as a back up knife. Ive not had to fend off any Great White sharks with it yet, but then again, it is only a tool
Innovative Knife Strap
Rating: They work. 10/6/2008
I like velcro keepers better. But I had a some extra room in my save a dive kit. Im sure theyll be needed when I least expect it.
Mares Fin Strap
Rating: Goes without saying. 10/6/2008

Trident Dive Glo-Toob
Rating: Serves its purpose 10/6/2008
I bought the red one, it is actually very bright and easy to see at night. Nice and small, easy to attach anywhere without it being in the way.
Innovative Max-Force Retractor with Brass Swivel
Rating: Fantastic 10/6/2008
Best retractor Ive bought yet. It is not as big and cumbersome as some have stated. I use it to keep my computer tucked in nice and close on my BC. No more dragging on the rocks. The tension is a perfect balance, holding snug while out of water, yet very easy to draw out while underwater.
Innovative Embroidered Nitrox Binder Log Book
Rating: Nice to be different 10/6/2008
This log book binder is really no different from most others, other than the Nitrox Diver logo on the front. It is nice to advertise the accomplishments of oneself for a change, and not for a company who chagred a price to display their logo. I love it!
Innovative Shark Dive Flag Bumper Sticker
Rating: Sticky! 10/3/2008
Nice looking dive sticker, just the right size. My 9yr old son wanted it more than my car did though!
Aeris Atmos AI Air / Nitrox Computer v.2
Rating: High tech security for a low tech diver! 9/20/2008
Excellent computer for either advanced or still getting your toes wet divers. Ive only used my new AI on about 6 dives, but have been increasingly impressed from the first time I got it wet. It is very simple to use (after reading the manual)and gives you all the info you need to make a safe & fun dive. The screen is easy to read underwater, the backlight is also good. I really like the swivel ring on it, I attach mine to a retractor on my BC, keeping it close to reach, not dragging around on the rocks. The compass is at the perfect angle to read, without losing sight of the info panel. The quick release is a must have option. One quick spin and off you go to review the dive. The warning beeps are loud enough under water. The only data I wish it would save but doesnt, is the remaining air presssure after the dive. Also, it has a 25 dive log, not 250 as the description shows. Im taking it for Nitrox diving to Chuuk (Truk Lagoon) in three weeks and am glad its coming with me. Definitely worth the dough!!!
Princeton Tec Shockwave L.E.D. Light
Rating: This little light of mine...... 8/1/2008
Very nice light for night diving. The first time I took it under in the dark, I was amazed how bright the LED lights are! Mine was brighter than my buddies way too expensive canister light! Illumination was bright, wide and the beam travelled far enough to see well ahead. Great for dark nooks and crannies. One suggestion would be to definitely use with a coil lanyard. The on/off switch could be better, but no big deal. The switch lock is nice to have. Overall, for the price......HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
XS Scuba Safety Sausage (SMB)
Rating: Not very tasty! 7/27/2008
This sausage tasted terrible! However it does fit nicely in a BC pocket, wrapped in its little compact bag. You dont even know its there, but its nice to have just in case! Good size and very bright. Worth the few bucks it is.
Akona Deluxe Regulator Bag
Rating: Great accessory to have 7/27/2008
Great reg bag and protector. Reg, Octo, Computer all fit nice in this bag. Has elastic straps inside to keep all hoses in place. No worry about that expensive computer banging around in transit. Also this bag fits perfectly into the outside pocket of the Akona Carry-on Roller bag for airline travel. Dries quick after storing wet gear.
Akona Deluxe Regulator Bag
Rating: Great back-up light 7/27/2008
Excellent little back up light. Attaches easy to wrist, BC, or sits nice in a BC pocket. Very durable. Great illumination for a small light.
