Scuba Gear Reviews by Daniel Araki
Neosport by Henderson 5mm Low-Top Soft Sole Dive Boots
Rating: Great for price 12/27/2011
I bought it cause it was one of the cheapest options, and I am very happy with it. I sometimes forget I have it on, taking it off its a little hard, but its comfortable, keeps my toes warm, and provides great protection against fin straps. Ive been diving in pretty warm waters though. So far no damage of any sort in 10 dives or so
Scubamax Finger Spool
Rating: It is what it is 12/27/2011
Its a spool, not much to it, I have used it a couple times while guiding a group, and havent had any issues. I bought it for the price, and it does everything I want it to do (provide a line to my marker so the boat can come pick us up while we do the safety stop)
Mares Safety Stop Surface Marker Buoy (SMB)
Rating: Good for extremely calm waters or lakes. 3/31/2011
This is a solid deco marker. I have used the rope that came with it since I lost my spool. Works well once you reach 25ft or less. In rough waters its a little hard to see over waves. I would recommend this for lake diving or extremely calm waters.

Rating: Great!! 3/31/2011
Working for a dive operation in Brazil I always carry my divealert. I only had to use it once, when the current shifted and took me and a novice diver farther out into the ocean. The skipper immediately heard the whistle and promptly arranged for our pick up. A must with a deco marker for ocean diving.

Rating: 1st suit 3/29/2009
So I just started SCUBA diving a little more than 6 months ago, and have just worn the suits provided by my college (Cheap 5mm suits). By comparison this suit is 5 times harder to get into, but 10 times warmer. Went diving in the lake with temp ~55F and did not feel a thing except on my hands (need gloves). The first three times you try to put on your suit will be quite an exercise, however it does shape to your body. I used some cans to help stretch the material some, and petroleum jelly to slide it on. Also I did buy a XS suit (clearance), when i am a between XS and S. So far I found the suit great, and at the clearance price it was a complete steal!!
