Exccellent SMB

I bought this SMB specifically for the 2 reflective strips on top. The yellow side can be seen even on really cloudy days and the length when fully inflated is easily seen from a chaser in choppy seas. I tuck this into my back plate pad pocket so it's out of the way. You have to push in on the oral inflate and blow to inflate it, otherwise it's all pretty straight forward with the dump valve being a simple and sturdy mechanism and the 1 way seaming on the bottom. This SMB holds the air in ...

Good smb but hasn't lasted

I was very excited to finally find a dual colour smb. This stood me out from the other guides at dive sites so my boat captain could find us easily. Unfortunately it has a number of small tears in it and deflates halfway on the surface now. I've tried patching it but they fall off. It's was an expensive sausage so I thought it would last longer. 6 months daily use was about all I got out of it. It's a little wide so difficult to fit in BCD pocket too.

One of a Kind

By

from New Yoerk, NY, US

The only SMB that has LED lights that not only work great at night but also on cloudy days. Took it on a night dive and had other divers asking me all about it. LeisurePro has the lowest price and delivery was fast and easy.

Great Investment

By

Solid construction, easy to use, very durable, by far one of the best dive buey's Ive seen. Had a hard time finding a place to stow this due to it being a little bulky. One draw back to this buey is that you cannot place your dive light within the buey to illuminate it at night. I fixed this by just adding a marker strobe to the top. This buey will work when you need it most, very good investment.

Excellent for Open Ocean use

By

I purchased this for night diving and open Ocean Wreck diving. The reflective tape and large size are perfect for recovery if currents bring you up away from the boat, visible even in swells. I added a compact strobe with a quicklink to the top of the buoy for additional safety. Combine these with a storm whistle, and your odds of recovery are even greater. I have not 'had' to use them yet, but practicing with them and having them along on the dive brings confidence and peace of mind. NOTE: This item is bulky. I added a pouch (small 1/2 mesh Eagle Creek) to the bottom of my BC backplate (using zip ties and quick links) to hold the SMB, strobe, and finger spool. This keeps it within easy reach and out of the way during my dives. The pouch attached by quick links makes it easy to add or remove based on my dive environment or needs. I would NOT purchase this for daytime river drift diving. Most people would want an SMB that is MUCH smaller as there are typically not ocean sized swells on a river limiting visibility.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Glenn F  Great prices.
Jaime V  This SMB is a great item. It has a very good size, two different colours which makes it stand out in the middle of the ocean and the pressure release valve is great to quickly deflate the SMB when climbing onto the boat.
Joe H  So, you have to unsnap (power inflator hose) fitting from BC, snap onto SMB fitting, fill SMB, unsnap hose fitting and then re-snap to BC? Hmmm
GEORGE E  simply hold back up reg.to mouth of sausage tap purge button (carefully) and your all set.
MARC O  You don't have to. It's an option you could use instead of blowing into it. Say, if you were on the surface (ie. a boat) where air is not forced into the SMB by the natural action of bubbles ascending under water. You can either blow into the valve or use your BCD inflator hose, Under water you can just hold an your alternate air source under the bottom end flaps and fill it with air, or just breathe from your reg and exhale into the bottom like any other SMB.
LAUREN S  The BCD hose does not snap into the SMB, just fits on it and Yes, you could use that method to inflate the SMB as well as using the alternate "Octopus" or even orally, so you have three different ways to inflate the SMB.
GARY G  No. You just use the inflator over the open end of the SMB. There is nothing to "snap" and unsnap. The whole process takes less than 15 secs and is very easy.
Shopper  how big is it both inflated and rolled for storage ?
Steve S  When inflated this marker buoy is 65" long by 8" wide. When rolled up it is very small. Small enough to fit in a pocket.
GARY G  It is perfect for high seas with chop. It deflates and rolls up enough to fit in my storage pouch worn on my webbing
MICHAEL A C  Rolled up it is 8" long and 3" in diameter. Inflated it is 64" tall and 14" in circumference. There are 2 reflective stripes at the top and a velcro storage pocket at the bottom as well as a nice strap to attache to your BC. The inflator is by mouth only but it fills easily and quickly-about 6 breaths I chose this after getting caught in rough water at the conclusion of a drift dive. The little one I had couldn't be seen well at all.
ROBERT G  Just measured mine. Unfurled it is 62". Rolled up 8 1/2" x 3". Larger than most SMB's. I remembered why I bought this one when I made a drift boat dive yesterday and needed to launch my SMB which only does oral inflate. 48F or 8C water after 55 minutes on my second dive it was annoying to hang at 30' (yes 20' is better but this was hassle time and pressure differential helps add inflation) and barely keep my slightly cold lips on the mouthpiece while keeping the spring-loaded slide on the mouthpiece back so the SMB would fill. My SMB has a small pouch (whistle or other small signaling device) and will inflate orally OR with a regulator and notice it has a dump valve just above. The length was a requirement to make it easier to see in rolling waves. With my 37" arm if I must wave it my chance of being seen is ++. I'd buy again without hesitation. Yes, it is a bit bulky, but I've got 2 dry suit pockets and my rollup snorkel fits in easily along with a spool of line in one pocket. I have pockets on my wetsuit so this works in tropical situations as well. Fits in a BC pocket, but with spool will fill one pocket. Hope this helps.
JOHN B  I keep it rolled up all the time. Seems to work.
