About Highland by XS Scuba 10' (3 meters) Surface Marker Buoy

Surface Marker Buoy's (SMB) are now a requirement for all divers. If you don't dive with a SMB you need to start now. It makes sense to be safe. Highland by XS Scuba's SMB is a big 10' (3 meters) tall Buoy for superior visibility on the surface day or night. SMB has a wide 22" (56 cm) circumference giving it 75 lbs (19.43 kg) Surface Lift, so it can double as a great lift bag too! Even with its increased height, circumference and lift it still stows compact in an included 6.5" X 12" (16.5 x 30.5 cm) Mesh Carry Pouch. The Pouch comes equipped with Grommets for Back-Plate Attachment for added conveniences (mounting hardware not included).

The Highland by XS Scuba's SMB has multiple features for Safety and Versatility. Three Bands of 3M SOLAS" Reflective Tape, Stainless Steel D-Ring at Top for Strobe Light attachment and an Elastic Holder for a Chemical Light Stick all to improve Surface Visibility Day or Night. Inflation of the SMB is made easy with the Combination Oral and BCD Quick-Disconnect Inflator Valve. Air will stay in the SMB with its Anti-Spill Baffled Bottom and over-pressurizing is never a problem with the built-in Overpressure Relief Valve (OPV) with Manual Dump Cord. If you find a treasure underwater that you need help getting to the surface, the 20" (50.8 cm) long Lift Harness with Stainless Steel D-Ring with give you the edge. SMB is manufactured with Durable Urethane Coated Nylon and is available in Orange and Yellow Colors.

Too Big

By

from Palm Beach, FL, US

I am a solo spear fisherman. So the question is Does size really matter. This is a great SMB if you want to be seen in high seas, in commercial shipping areas or close speedboat driving buffoons. Also consider high seas or sudden thunder storms. Trouble is its a little difficult to fully inflate (I have an air gun on a LP line. And if not fully inflated it sucks up water. It is also a pain to deflate and roll up once on the boat. Perhaps consider 8 foot model with same girth. Functionally the valves all work well. And quality appears to be good. I would never go out to sea with one of those little skinny ones!

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

ALLEN M  Where is this product made? The Carter PF50 is made in USA. Important to buy American whenever possible
Michael C  Unfortunately I believe it is made in China.
TJ S  How does the mesh pouch open? Is it Velcro? How easy is it to get it open if it's on your backplate?
Michael C  The pouch closure is velcro. How easy it is to open depends on your own personal experience. Most tech divers mount their smb's on the backplate and most bags are velcroed close so it must not be too difficult to open.
Shopper  Can it be inflated by an octopus?
Shelley R  I know some of the safety sausages have an opening in the bottom to allow inflation with your octo or reg, I'm not sure this one does. It looks like it just has the valve that you manually inflate or as Craig said use your inflator hose.
CRAIG H  Yes. The lower end will open to allow a free-flow octopus to be the source of air fill. You can also DC your low pressure hose (Air2 or inflator) and connect to a valve that is on the side.
