Comments about XS Scuba Rattle Pointer with Clip:
We bought two of these to replace our separate pointer sticks and rattles for a week of shore diving in Bonaire. Great concept, but they are very noisy out of the water, even when moved just slightly. Very noisy when transporting them attached to your BC or in your dive bag. You really have to hold them in your hand with the rattle part covered with your hand to keep them quiet when moving. Also, the clip design makes them very easy to clip on, but also makes it easier for them to come unclipped. (We had to retrieve ours twice while underwater when they came unclipped) You have to keep them tucked in to your belt, etc. while underwater to prevent accidental "jangling" which can be very annoying. We had high hopes for these, but will be going back to our separate pointer sticks and rattles.
