    Pretty good after you shoot an SMB up to the surface trailing your antennae wire behind it off your 'spool'. But all that noise in your full-face mask is going to seriously mess with your zen... :wink:

    Great one more piece of junk to make noise at the beach. :wink: Now how are we supposed to get a new phone if we cant say we ran it through the washer or dropped it off the boat?

    Only designed to go to 1m. This would make for a very shallow and boring dive. Then again - through it in an Otterbox and take 'er down with you. Now all the business types can annoy people with SI phone calls before they even get back to the boat!

    Thank goodness, what a relief to know if you get hopelessly tangled in netting or line you can just text message someone on the surface to send shears and more air.
