WIN a Pocket Ratchet Reel from AP Diving!!!


For this week’s competition, we’ve teamed up with our good friends at AP Diving to give away one of their new Pocket Ratchet Reels as a prize!

Here are some of the unique benefits of the new Ratcheted Pocket Reel  from AP Diving:

  • Sits comfortably in the palm of the hand and can be easily stowed (only 8cm in diameter).
  • 45m of high-visibility Dyneema line which is twice as strong as Kevlar and stronger than steel.
  • The totally enclosed design prevents bird-nest tangling, a common problem with open reels.
  • Features a loud audible Ratchet-click when winding-in which aids the diver in judging ascent speed and/or lets other divers know you are returning or ascending.
  • Simple on/off thumb-lock switch to change between ratchet and free-running modes when deploying the line.

For use as both a Surface Marker Buoy (SMB) Reel and/or a Navigation Reel:

  • The line is positively buoyant which means it will rise above the sea-bed or wreckage when played out, helping to avoid entanglement and delay on the return journey.
  • The wrist loop can be tightened onto the wrist when used as a navigation line, leaving your hands free for other tasks.
  • The wrist loop is easily removed for safe deployment of an SMB.
  • The thumb-lock switch features a lock-off / tap-to-release design so that you do not have to keep your thumb on it in free-running mode.

Dimensions: 8cm diameter x 4.5cm deep

Weight: 200g

RRP £55.00
