About AquaSketch Minno Scrolling Wrist Slate, Black/Black

    The rolling writing surface is a clever idea and works well. It is fairly easily erased with a standard eraser once dry. The pencil does not stay in the holder very well. I had to stick in my sleeve. When I wasn't wearing a sleeved wetsuit, the pencil simply floated and eventually broke off. I am hoping I can find a replacement pencil because I like using this slate.

    The Auqa Sketh is a good idea. What this product needs is better strapping and stonger pencil. Broke the pencil on first dive, now I have 2 pencils. Overall it's a great idea, but I don't think it's worth the money retailers are asking for it.

      Comments about AquaSketch Minno Scrolling Wrist Slate, Black/Black:

      I'm a dive instructor and have used this twice so far this year with students in cold water. I write the open water dive skills for each dive and can easily scroll from one dive to the next. Scroll knobs are easy to turn even with thicker 5mm gloves on. Some things I don't like: the graphite pencil that comes with the unit smudges easily. I don't like the long rubber tubing that holds the pencil (easy to snag something). The Velcro arm band is literally impossible to adjust underwater; you cannot pull it apart; it is even very difficult on land with no gloves. I'm looking for some way to attach rubber bands and cut off the Velcro. I'm anxious to give the product a try in the ocean on a regular dive triip. I'm satisfied with the product so far with my limited use of it at this time.

              Comments about AquaSketch Minno Scrolling Wrist Slate, Black/Black:

              I bought this based on the positive reviews and because most other slates are pathetic compared to this thing. Wore this for the first time for AOW class, very nice, you don't even notice you are wearing it and it isn't another dangly on your gear. We had to write down compass headings over a course as we went from point to point. When we reran the course I just scrolled back to the beginning. The special graphite pencil writes perfectly under water and has a silicone lanyard and storage slot and sharpens like any other pencil. The knobs are easy to manipulate with thinner gloves on and you can scroll back and forth as you desire, no erasing, plenty of room. Works fine on either arm or can be used on a retractor. Although we had plenty of light, this is supposed to have a luminescent background for use in the dark. It also comes with a second roll of velum that is marked off in squares and a special eraser. The manufacturer has several other styles of velum rolls with graphs, lines and other styles. One of the other divers had one of those curved muti page wrist slates, you could hardly read the writing on his, no comparison.

              Comments about AquaSketch Minno Scrolling Wrist Slate, Black/Black:

              I put a line 8" from each end so I know when I'm getting close to end of roll. Perfect for tech dives when communication beyond simple hand gestures is vital. Only con is the pencil appears to be graphite which is fairly brittle. So far, so good though.

              Package was delivered quickly, in good condition. Have never had a problem with you folks.

              Patti M  saw other divers using it who liked it. i got tired of the wrist slates breaking and having to re-buy
              Johnny P  Has anyone used this to communicate with a buddy under water? I'm curious as to how that would work when it's attached to your arm. Seems like you would have to contort your arm quite a bit for them to be able to read what you wrote.
              Johnny P  Thanks for the responses. I never thought about positioning myself to the diver. That makes perfect sense. Not quite as easy as holding the slate up, but that's the only real con I see to this which isn't a big one.
              mark c  Rather than wearing the device on your arm you can attach it to a lanyard or store it in a BC pocket. That way it is easier to display to other divers for communication. I've seen some instructors use two - one on the arm for reference and one on a lanyard for communication.
