Product Overview

North Florida cave diver, Woody Jasper, first invented sidewinder-style reels around 1980. Less likely to entangle than other reels on the market, Woody's original reel was made of aluminum and a PVC spool. The side-handle style of the reel lent itself to exploration because it could easily switch from hand to hand while laying out line. Dive Rite's Sidewinder Series of Reels are designed to be anti-jam by using precision machine tolerances between the frame and the spool making it nearly impossible for the line to slip between the spool and the handle.

The Sidewinder Jump/Gap Reel is used to make a connection between permanent guidelines in a cave or to jump from the main line to offshoot lines. It comes with 50' (15.2m) of durable DuPont fiber braided #24-line and a medium stainless-steel bolt snap. The Sidewinder Jump/Gap Reel is ideal for use in high flow cave systems where it can be paid in/out very quickly versus spool-design reels. Reel has an injected molded polycarbonate spool with knurled lockdown screw that has a low profile to prevent snagging and is resistant to breakage and cracking. Also, the reel has a high-quality aircraft grade CNC machined aluminum frame and stainless-steel axle that is corrosion resistant. The Jump/Gap Reel weighs 12 oz. (340 g).
