    Custom Divers Radar Reflective Seeker DSMB

    Anyone considering a long hang, it waters where you might not be able to be seen on the surface might find this Custom Divers Radar Reflective DMSB of interest. Quality Diving Equipment by Custom Divers - SEEKER - RADAR DETECTABLE SMB

    Havn't dived one yet, but seems like a simple low tech survival tool for offshore diving.

    Regards
    Brad

    Yeah actually,
    Finger pocket ratchet reel Quality Diving Equipment by Custom Divers - 50 MTR POCKET RATCHET REEL, kind of a cross between a full size ratchet reel and a spool with the benefits of both for hanging out under a DSMB, but with being able to stash it in a mid sized pocket.

    i have one of those as my back up reel when i'm being all techy and as a primary reel when i'm doing recreational stuff off the club rhib. Its never let me down but sometimes the user is a muppet of extraordinary ability.

    Re: Custom Divers Radar Reflective Seeker DSMB

    I've been diving Custom Divers reels for a long time now, and can't recommend the pocket reel enough. It's a great backup reel and also very cool for recreational stuff as a main reel. Works great with one of those little halcyon dsmbs as it all wraps up into a tiny package that's easy to travel with.

    Of other CD products I like, the bravo wing is very good for diving the Meg, it was designed with the meg in mind and as such the hose routing etc is very neat. The VBS is similarly designed with the inspo in mind, but I can't comment as I haven't dived it.

    The DSMB apparently has a similar radar cross section to a small yacht, which has to be a good thing.

    (declaration of interest: I know Alex, but I don't work for him. He's a top bloke and I'm not just blowing smoke up his ass, the gear is top quality.)

    Safe diving
    Nick

    I've got one of these SEEKER SMB's and yes it works very well as you would expect from a bit of Custom Divers kit.

    However, a few of the UK skippers have had mixed results when they have tried picking these up on their ships radars. I was told by one that unless the SMB is held perfectly upright they couldn’t pick it up at all even at close range.

    But I still think it's better than nothing & if by some chance I find myself alone in the middle of ocean a small chance of it being detected is better than nothing...

    Re: Custom Divers Radar Reflective Seeker DSMB

    Brad dragged me over to the booth at DEMA to see the SMB, and it cost me the price of one to get out of the booth. It seems a good product, and next week we're going to toss one off of the boat with a weight attached to hold it vertical and see what we see on RADAR. Like many reflectors, it will have huge lobes of attenuation, and it makes sense that it will need to be kept vertical to be a good target. As long as the diver knows this and works to keep it upright, it ought to be a good improvement.

    They have the webbing to hold a crack-bottle installed as well, and they sell the fitting so that an AP Valves crack bottle can be added. They don't seem to sell for a premium either.. so into my wallet I dove.

    The PLB cannister and web holder lor same looked great too. Have a set on order.

    Re: Custom Divers Radar Reflective Seeker DSMB

    Would reflective tape or half of a CD/DVD work as well?

    I have been told that the OMS clear cannister will also hold the 210 PLB and last I looked they had them on low $ clearance pricing.
