Dive Rite – Dive Rite Sidewinder Cave Primary Reel

Dive Rite Sidewinder Cave Primary Reel. North Florida cave diver, Woody Jasper, first invented sidewinder-style reels around 1980. Less likely to entangle than other reels on the market, Woodys original reel was made of aluminum and a PVC spool. The side-handle style of the reel lent itself to exploration because it could easily switch from hand to hand while laying out line. Twenty years later, sidewinder-style reels were popularized in the technical diving community when DIR enthusiasts began using them for paying out line in deep caves at high speed on a DPV. Our Sidewinder series of reels are designed to be anti-jam by using precision machine tolerances between the frame and the spool making it nearly impossible for the line to slip between the spool and the handle. Choose between our Sidewinder Cave Primary (RE50400) with 400-feet of #24 braid line our Sidewinder Wreck Primary (RE50250) that has 250-feet of #36 braid line, both with extra large stainless bolt [continued]Specifications:- DuPont fiber braid line provides strength and minimizes fraying.- Cave series reels use #24 braid line giving 220-lbs of breakage strength.

Dive Rite Finger Spool

Dive Rite Finger Spool
Dive Rite – Dive Rite Finger Spool

Dive Rite Finger Spool. Finger Spool 50-feet (17 mtrs)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 didnt empty the spool it would be left in the cave for the next dive. Cave diving pioneer, Woody Jasper, used a medical tape spool with cover to hold that short length of safety line. Today, our 50-foot 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. Made of ABS plastic, finger spools are simple to use and virtually indestructible in the water. They come standard with a large stainless double ended clip.- DuPont fiber braid line provides strength and minimizes fraying (RE4800) – Orange Dacron line does not stretch, keeping tension firm (RE4820)- Uses #24 braid line giving 220-lbs of breakage strength. – Injection molded polycarbonate spools resist breakage and cracking. – Marine grade stainless steel double ended bolt snap is rust and corrosion resistant. – 5 oz (141.7g) Finger Spool 125-feet (42 mtrs)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 didnt empty the spool it would be left in the cave for the next dive. The spools came in various sizes and North Florida cave diver, Bill Hogarth Main, popularized smaller spools for safety and jump reels. Today, our 125-foot Finger Spool is often used for shooting lift bags as well as a safety reel. 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 the double ended snap anywhere along the perimeter of the spool to keep the line tight when not in use. Made of ABS plastic, finger spools are simple to use and virtually indestructible in the water. They come standard with a large stainless double ended clip.- White, DuPont fiber braid line provides strength and minimizes fraying (RE4900) – Orange Dacron line does not stretch, keeping tension firm (RE4920)- Uses #24 braid line giving 220-lbs of breakage strength. – Injection molded polycarbonate spools resist breakage and cracking. – Marine grade stainless steel double ended bolt snap is corrosion resistant. – 6 oz (170g)TIPS:1.Before diving with a new reel (or a dry reel that has been in storage), put the reel in a bucket of water and after soaking, pay out the entire length of line and reel it back in. This will moisten the line, precluding it from swelling on the reel and further preventing the possibility of jamming or damaging the spool.2.As with most dive equipment, you should rinse your reel with fresh water following each dive. You should also periodically disassemble the reel, and remove any build up of salt or sediment on its internal parts. 3.Dive Rite recommends pulling some or all of the line off the spool before each dive, then rewinding it neatly but not too tightly, so as to prevent the possibility of jamming during line deployment.4.Finally, too much line on the spool can cause jams during initial deployment, if you are having a problem with jams try removing 10 or 15 feet of line.
