About Aluminum Reel with Tension & Locking System

In the early days of Cave Diving, Reels were not available to buy off the shelf. Divers used anything they could, including Empty Electrical Wire Spools. When Exploring, Divers would Pay-Out the Line and if they didn't Empty-the-Spool it would be left in the Cave for the Next Dive. Aqua's Aluminum Primary Reel is a Large Diver's Reel designed for Cave and Wreck Diving. The Reel is available with 2-Line Lengths of 150' or 250' (45 74 or 76 2 meters) of Nylon 0 079" (2 mm). Thick Line, has a Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Anodized Frame, Plastic Spool, Spring Loaded Slide Gate Swivel Bolt Snap, and Drag System.

The Reel Position the Handle On-Top, which helps Divers who use a Handheld Light to hold Both-the-Light-and-the-Reel in One-Hand, Freeing the other Hand to Work the Reel. Reel has Large-Tension Adjustment Control Knob which is Easy-to-Use with Gloved Hands, and helps prevent Bird-Nesting and Back-Lash of the Line. Reel is Ideal for Lift Bag Deployment.

I tested this product while wreck diving. First of all: The reel is too small to be useful: The pin you use to spin the reel is too close to the "tension adjustment knob" and too short to be effectively used with diving gloves. The tension adjuster knob is a toy you will never use and doesn't really do it's job anyway. The little locking mechanism is nice for storage, but in the way underwater: It's exactly where you would put the finger to add tension on the spool. In addition: This spool is only suitable for right handed divers. In a confined environment where you have to switch the reel from hand to hand once in a while, this one is unnecessarily difficult to use.

    Comments about Aqua Aluminum Reel with Tension & Locking System:

    This reel works great due to the tension knob. like a bait casting reel. I use these daily working on a dive boat running lines for the customers. it is easy to use. only problem I have is it does bend in some causing it to bind and this is my fault in that it does get banged up some.

            Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  What is the weight of the reel?
            DANIEL V  With wet string I do not believe it weighs 1.5 pounds
            Shopper  Could this be used for hauling up an extra large goody bag full of scallops? I have used the cheap plastic line holders before and they have worked fine. But the reel idea seems to be a good one.
            DANIEL S  In my opinion, these reels are made for applications other than hauling load. I wouldn't use it for that.
