    After running reels in a cavern environment on several dives, I concluded that there must be an easier way for those of us with tiny, size 6 hands, to efficiently and effectively lay line, and hold a flood light, without being so cumbersome.

    I saw that this reels handle could be detached, so I took if off, positioned it to the side, cut off the excess steel, drilled new holes, and reconfigured my reel to be a Side Handle Reel.

    I now really love it, and it's so much easier to navigate with!!!

    I recommend this reel, but also recommend modifying it.

    Really like the functions on this dive reel but on my first dive i was towing my safety sausage on the surface when felt the string go loose. I looked back to see the line laying on the bottom of the lake. Not sure if it wrapped around something or what but never felt any resistance when the line snapped. Gonna put a heavier string on it.

      Comments about Highland by XS Scuba Reel:

      Wanted a reel with more line capaity then the 150 foot one I had. Looks good and I like the multi drag/click system. Less likley to let the line run away and end with a tangled mess.

        Comments about Highland by XS Scuba Reel:

        This reel functions well, and is very good quality. I did not give it 5 stars simply because I did find it a little bit difficult to operate with thick dry gloves on. It worked, but the reel rubs against the back of your fingers as you operate it. This makes it a little less efficient than I'd like!
