    At any price, there is no reason not to have a signal like this with you. Smaller than a large man's fist when deflated, this little safety sausage is decent quality, and has a solid clip that you can attach to your BC if neccessary.

    It inflates pretty quickly, but doesnt have an auto-inflate like the fancier models. It also barely takes up any space. Even if you dont have pockets on your BC, you could clip this and forget about it.

    I've carried one ever since a large boat almost left without a buddy pair once. They 3rd world dive charters arent always reliable, and if the couple hadnt been holding up a bright orange sausage, the crew probably would have missed them and the day been real bad!

    Visual and Audible: I carry a whistle and this. While its not the biggest signal out there, its worth having.

    It works. I would recommend something betting if you're going to use it a lot. I dive a boat traffic heavy bridge and I have it for backup (i had one boater take my dive flag - thought he found something neat I guess). If you're going to do the occasional drift dive (ala Cozumel) it might make sense to clip it to your BCD. A real good one would have heavy fabric, an overpressure dump and maybe a light stick holder. Buy it if your not going to use it every dive - otherwise buy the best and you're never dissatisfied.

        Comments about Blue Reef 45"(114.3 cm) Signal Tube/Surface Marker Buoy with Inflator:

        After receiving this item in the mail, I unrolled it and attempted to blow it up. Immediately I was taken aback by the cheap feeling of the material compared to others I had used. As I attempted to blow it up i realized there was a hole through one side and out the other near the base. No idea what caused it as it appeared to be in original packaging and unused. I sent it back for a refund. Perhaps this would be a reasonable buy at half the price, but certainly not worth $20.

            Small compact. Easy to repack after use. I've used it a couple times and it looks like it will last a while. It was inexpensive.

            Be sure to attach another loop/clip. The plastic clip opened-up on me and I lost mine while diving. Otherwise, thiis is a good product. I like how it holds the air and does not deflate at the surface like some do. Do not over-fill when deploying from depth - they can rupture due to air expansion

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              Michael T  Just did my first Cozumel diving...dive master had this setup. Used it to mark our pickup point to the boat. Realized then it was an important piece of safety equipment I didn't have.
              John p  is the Blue Reef Finger reel a good match to with this? I think 80' feet will satisfy my need?
              JAMES R  In my opinion it would depend on what you intend to use it for and how deep you will be. I have used the finger reel with this buoy and it is perfect for my needs. Easy, quick, and effective. I use it to mark dive sites and fishing spots.
              Josh H  Do you use these while diving attached to a reel so that it follows you while you swim or is it for surface use? And does it come with a reel?
              DANIEL G  Josh, We are normally live-boating while diving so we use these at the end of our dive to signal the boat as to our position. We deploy them at the time of ascent using a reel. They are easy to manipulate and small enough that they could be dragged behind you at the surface while diving. Reels are extra and can be very expensive. I have had many reels, but still prefer the finger spool because of its small size and ease of operation.
