We’ve assembled this float package deal specifically for scuba divers who are looking for a BETTER way to display their dive flag. Most dive flags are mounted on a stick with a small float and are easily submerged when towed into a current. They also provide negligible buoyancy for support of the diver at the surface.
Some divers have used inner tubes or other similar devices, but these make way too much drag and are a huge problem if you are trying to enter through a shore break or encounter any currents.
The solution is our package that includes our Hawaiian float which is constructed of nearly indestructible, hard plastic and provides hand holds for support at the surface. It is streamlined and easy to tow through the surf or in a current. Ocean rescue life guards often use these same floats because they work so well.
We’ve also included a dive flag attachment that includes a 2-lb lead weight to help keep the dive flag upright. The dive flag meets the size requirements for the State of Florida and includes the required stiffener as well.
Then we added our high quality, ratcheting reel which carries 150 feet of nylon braid line. The reel allows deployment of line when the thumb lever is depressed and automatically stops when it is released. This allows a one handed line release on descent and prevents whiplash of the reel which can result in a “bird’s nest” tangle of line in some reels.
We've also included a Long Line Clip to the package to make travel and storage easier by unclipping the float from the reel.
Finally, we’ve included our stainless steel hook, which connects to the reel handle and allows the reel and float system to be anchored to the bottom, freeing up the diver’s hands.
We’ve put this complete package together at a discount price after we heard from our customers how well this system works for them.
