About Dive Rite Cavern/Safety Reel w/o Drag, 140' - #24 Line

The Cavern/Safety Reel came about as North Florida cave training agencies began establishing standards in cave training. The established standard for cavern divers was to limit penetration no farther than 130 linear feet (40 meters) from daylight. Experienced cave divers use the Cavern/Safety Reel as a Jump Reel or as a Backup for Security. Wreck Divers will use this Reel for Shooting Lift Bags. The Cavern/Safety Reel is available with 140' (42.7 meters) of Durable DuPont Fiber Braided #24-Line which has 220 lbs (99.80 kg) Breakage Strength and a Medium Marine Grade Stainless Steel Bolt Snap.

The Reel Positions 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. The Marine Grade Stainless Steel Frame of the reel comes with a Series of Pre-Drilled Holes so divers can change positions from a Top-Mount Handle to a Side-Mount Handle or a Left-Hand Operated Reel. The Injected Molded Polycarbonate Spool with T"-Top Lockdown Screw for Easy Grip is Resistant to Breakage and Cracking. The Spool is held in place with a Stainless Steel "C" Clip so replacing the Spool or Cleaning-Up a Jammed Reel is Simple. The Reel is also equipped with a Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel Axle and weighs 16 oz (450 g). Reel is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

The Dive Rite Cavern/Safety Reel w/o Drag, 140' - #24 Line is commonly used for Cold Water, Recreation, Warm Water and more. The Dive Rite Cavern/Safety Reel w/o Drag, 140' - #24 Line is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced Diver among others.

Very Smooth operation

Very Smooth Operation. It is perfect for venturing out around wrecks in lower vizibility, shooting up a lift bag or saftey sausage, and using it as a back up in cave/cavern applications.

Needed a new reel with high line capacity; was advised to go with a higher priced reel from a different manufacturer, but saw this one and for the price decided to try it out. THIRD time I was using it to deploy a safety sausage from 100 feet, the screw/bolt holding the reel to the frame backed out of it's hole and the whole rig came apart in my hands... guess you get what you pay for....

Comments about Dive Rite Dive-Rite 140 ft # 24 Line Safety Reel # 4100:

I bought this reel through a local dive shop in the states over three years ago. While making a technical dive in the Philippines (January 2011) the drag screw came out while I was deploying my SMB. I'd never had a problem with it up till then. Still trying to find a replacement drag screw.

    Fell apart after about 10 dives.. This reel needs a locking wingnut.. Otherwise the reel falls apart. I would NOT use this for a cave dive...

      Comments about Dive Rite Dive-Rite 140 ft # 24 Line Safety Reel # 4100:

      Well-made, light weight reel, absolutely neccessary for deploying safety markers on the surface, u/w navigation in limited/ no vis and cave/ wreck diving. Easy to use in 5mm gloves, drag knob should be relocated to other side for easier one-handed deployment. Practice in controlled environment before using with bouys!!!

          Comments about Dive Rite Dive-Rite 140 ft # 24 Line Safety Reel # 4100:

          Great product-does everything I need it too-I read other reviews on the auto tensioner & decided not to get that option. I have used the reel several times with the only issue being I knocked it loose once & had some cord trailing behind me-my fault for not checking it prior to dive. Dive buddy spotted it. No harm no foul.
          Very good value.
