Good Product

By Mark

I bought this reel exclusivly to deploy a safety sausage. It's great for this use as it is compact and fits in a bc pocket so it will be there when you need it


Basic and it works


Basic and no thrills finger wheel. I got this finger reel for travel. Other reviewers indicated the Orange color came off the line and made me second guess myself but went with the Orange anyways. I've not had a problem at all with the color coming off and or staining any other gear.

In the early days of cave diving, reels were not available to buy off the shelf. Divers used anything they could, including empty electrical wire spools. When exploring, divers would pay out the line and if they didn't empty the spool it would be left in the cave for the next dive. The Finger Spool is most often used as a gap reel or for short distance exploration. Small and low-profile, a spool fits nicely out of the way in a pocket or clipped-off to a D-ring. The holes in the side allow for clipping in a double-ended snap anywhere along the perimeter of the spool to keep the line tight when not in use.

Blue Reef's Finger Spools come equipped with a durable corrosion resistant brass double-ender bolt snap. The Spool is durable material for strength, corrosion resistance and long life. The Line is international orange nylon line. The Line comes in lengths of 80' (15.2 m) and 167' (50.9 m) and is available orange line on the 80' (15.2 m) and white line on the 167' (50.9 m) to serve your needs and is approved for up to a maximum of 176 lbs. (80 kg) of dry weight.

Most Liked Negative Review


shipping was less than impressive

i was disappointed in that i ordered this item on 9/19 and it didnt ship out until 9/30, thats not prompt by any means. no follow up email to inform me of delay, no anything other than a final email it had shipped. i could have paid $4 more and had it that day at my local dive shop now the dive season over here so i wont get to use it until next spring. not impressed

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Patrick M  Able to send up safety marker from a safe depth to notify boats on the surface of my accent.
Carl M  Color, brass clip
KARL W  perfect little reel for a safety sausage
Timothy S  Low Price
JAMES H  Great price and purchased one previously. This is an essential addition to my SMB.
BRUCE M  We go into some poor viz situations, so this seemed a good idea, and also useful to send a safety sausage up for surface ID.
Carmine P  Needed to replace a spool I lost. I've used it a few times and I'm happy with it. I swapped out the brass hardware for stainless steel.
Roger R  good price -didn't have one
Irving C  Simply put the price could not be beat.
Christopher W  Good performance for the price. Going wreck diving soon and need my own reel for my SMB.
Jaime V  As an instructor I spend a great amount of time in the water and it is unavoidable to lose items. This reel is practical, hi visibility orange on the safety line and most importantly, it is inexpensive.
Ron M  Great price on a standard finger spool. I chose the orange to differentiate SMB from DSMB.
DAVID L  As a diver that does a lot of drift diving it is very important that i have equipment that can be used to recover me to the boat. The reel is one part of the combo along with a safety sausage.
ANDREW K  Bought as part of a "Black Friday" deal. Using for spool with Blue Reef Diver Below marker buoy.
Michael T  "Just did my first Cozumel diving...dive master had this setup. Used it to mark our pickup point to the boat. Realized then it was an important piece of safety equipment I didn't have. "
Laura B  "Good quality and availability. Friendly service and courteous customer service."
DAVID B  This item was over 50% off on sale through 12/31 and the reviews were excellent!
JAMES S  Drift diving and in and out of pangas, will assist in locating me if I should loose the group or my buddy.
DAVID T  Great reel for an SMB.
John C  Great price on a high quality reel
GLENN S  good value
Steelplayer S  On sale for a very low price. My OW dive instuctor demonstrated the use of a reel, but I will likely set this aside for future use as I gain more experience. I bought it now primarily because of the low price.
MATTHEW W  For emergency buoy/locator buoy deployment
DAVID S  Great back-up real. Cant beat the price. Hardware alone is worth the price!
Larson L  Compact, easy to stow in BC pocket. In bad vis I can clip to a known point, like the anchor, and venture out to find pirate gold and return safely.
zachary a  Wanted an easily visible line.
KEITH W  Needed a small reel for a trip to the tropics. WIll fit nicely with my SMB in a thigh pocket. I like the high vis orange line for use in low-light conditions.
ROSS C  good stuff good price hassle free.timely arrival.consistantly!
Val P  good price
DAWN B  smaller then a regular reel easier to carry
NEAL R G  excellent reel; great for wreck diving. good value at LeisurePro
GARRETT F  not very high tech, but does the trick at a bargain. Just don't use it on drift dives or floats deeper than 60' - you will run out of line.
JOSEPH M  easy to use and can use with my lift bag
Katherine N  Nice spool. You may have to take several feet off to make it easier to clip the end onto spool after rolling up.
Neal L  Small and light weight for travel, along with a surface marker
ANTHONY S  For use in Cavern Diving and on my safety sausage.
MATTHEW F  Back up reel or for use as a marker line
KENNETH R  Compact and handy - easy to carry all the time.
RONDA P  Good Price
MICHAEL B  This came as part of our beginning scuba package, purchased at Leisure Pro. Almost 2 years later, 100+ Open Water Dives, 6 International diving trips and hundred of hours in the pool and it still looks and works as good as new.
Angel A  What is the width on the 100 ft Spool?
Mario C  Thank you for your question. The width is 1 1/2"
Michele r  what is the diameter of the reel?
CHRISTOPHER D  Outside diameter 3.25 inches.
GREGORY P  Its about 4" in diameter. Prefect little finger spool. Prefect for deploying a safety sausage or a light flag line. Doesn't get more basic or reliable. I've had mine about 5 years and have about 100 dives on it. Still in good shape.
