    Comments about BladeFish 3000 DPV Sea Scooter:

    At first I was really skeptical about ability of this scooter to pull anything. I was really surprised when jetty I was heading to suddenly appeared so close! The speed of this scooter is nowhere advertised but it is enough to pull diver with the same comfortable pace, like one would get kicking quite hard. I'm 200 lb, wearing 12 lb weight belt + heavy "Shardana" float+ speargun and it still pull along without any problems. The downside is that poor placement of triggers will tire your hands, I would prefer to press triggers with my index fingers. Another problem that it is hard to equalize without stopping the unit since you have to hold on with both hands in order for the scooter to move. Scooter is positively buoyant and will tend to float up, so you have to clip it to your arm or to BC. After 30 min of playing with it the charge led still green, so it is more than enough for recreational diving. Summing up, this scooter is a great alternative to expensive and bulky professional scooters on the market. I think if you try one you won't be disappointed.

      Comments about BladeFish 3000 DPV Sea Scooter:

      I was quite excited to hear I was going to be able to try the bladefish 3000 over 2 dives at Dutch springs our local dive spot. First a little about myself to give you some perspective on what it was pulling. I'm 6'2 180 lbs and was diving with a fairly minimal rear inflation BC with about 26 lbs of weight, a drysuit and an AL 80 scuba cylinder. Right off the first thing I noticed with the Bladefish is that it's very light (~10 lbs) and small compared to other dpv's, it barely takes up any room in the car and it's easy to carry with all your dive gear when walking to the entry point. Getting into the water it was also quite easy to maneuver around, holding it in one hand or between my legs so that I could get hood, mask and fins on, there was no worry where to set this huge thing because basically it's a whole DPV just squished into the back end of a DPV. On the dive the Bladefish continued to impress, a quick press of the thumb switches and it came to life, within a couple of seconds it was pulling me along and in a few more I was at max speed. I don't really have an exact speed to give you but to say that I was moving at my "get somewhere" speed (with no help from me kicking or anything), basically as fast as you could comfortably swim for any distance longer than a short burst. So consequently we noticed our friends falling behind after a couple of minutes and had to take a break and zip around in circles while we waited for them to catch up to us. My buddy, who is a larger diver, had the 5000 model and we were pretty evenly matched when going side by side, he had the choice of 3 speeds vs. the one speed of my dpv. The Bladefish did not seem to be struggling at all to pull me and my gear though I did notice that a little effort to be more streamlined did make me speed up noticeably. I had been a bit afraid that it might be distractingly loud based on how it sounded on land but the water quieted it down quite a bit and through the 2 dives I never thought of the sound again. Towards the end of the dive I tossed it to a couple of our friends and let them try it out, all were very pleased with it's performance and ease of use, and after the dive I was glad I could walk with it back to my car without having to make another trip. Between dives we threw the scooters on the charger even though they were still reading full power so they would be ready to go for another full dive. For the second dive I got to try out the Bladefish 5000 and it was even more impressive. I really liked the choice of 3 speeds to make it easier to cruise around to check things out vs. covering ground to go someplace, it also could probably be used to extend battery life. The 5000 certainly did have more kick to it and if you dive with a lot of gear / accessories it may be a better choice than the 3000 model. In the past I have owned a couple of Oceanic Mako scooters, and while they were more powerful they were also significantly heavier and more expensive. Side by side now for the purely recreational diving that I'm doing I would go for the bladefish every time, there's just nothing that comes close for the size and power of these dpv's. Also being smaller will make it much easier to store in my apartment than it's larger brothers. Over all the Bladefish 3000 gets two thumbs up!
