About Surface Marker Webbing Deployment System Deluxe

An upgraded version of the Surface Marker WDS, features a taller buoy, SOLAS reflective tape for increased nighttime visibility and a rescue mirror visible over 19.9 miles (32 km). The Surface Marker with Webbing Deployment System (WDS), is an all-in-one ready to use Surface Marker Buoy System. The Buoy is recommended for recreational diving for deployment when making safety stops, on live-aboard trips, night diving and is suitable for more remote areas and drift dives where a large signaling devise is needed and a signal mirror can make all the difference in a missing diver scenario.

The Surface Marker Buoy is manufactured from durable 210-Denier Nylon in orange and yellow. With both an orange and a yellow panel this is by far the most visible combo for the recreational diver. The orange panel is more visible in bright sunlight and significant glare. While the yellow panel will prove its worth as light deteriorates and the rain clouds move in. The Buoy measures 69" (175 cm) in height and 6" (15.5 cm) in width and provides 19.8 lbs (9 kg) of lift. Buoy is equipped with Solas Reflective Tape for easy ID in low light or night diving conditions and has a Stainless Steel D-Rings for attachment to the Webbing Deployment System (WDS).

The WDS comes with deployment instructions making it easy to understand proper procedures and uses. As a safety issue the WDS greatly reduces the risk of entanglement normally faced with free-floating string or cord. It also eliminates the need to carry a dedicated reel or spool. The WDS is made from strong nylon webbing and comes equipped with a Marine Grade Brass Snap Hook for attachment to the Surface Buoy and a stainless steel ring for diver deployment. The WDS is also equipped with a deployment retainer that makes deployment of the buoy simple and tangle free. Included with the Deluxe SMB is a durable Lexan Signal Mirror that measures 1.97" x 2.8" (5 x 7 cm) and weighs 0.7 oz (20 g). The Mirrors retro-reflective aimer allows for exact aiming for better recognition. The entire system fits into the included Carry Pouch for BCD attachment.
