The reel is wound with 40m of floating line - manufactured to our own specifications for the optimum combination of strength and flotation.
The cord has a breaking strain of 50kg and the advantage of being positively buoyant which means that it will rise above the sea-bed or wreckage when played out and so help avoid entanglement. If the line is accidentally wound all the way into the reel body, the end is easily identified and recovered by means of a large attached O ring.
A large loop in the end of the cord makes tying off at the shot-line or connection to an SMB a simple operation. The winding handle also features a groove which is useful for temporary lock-off of the line.
The BUDDY Pocket Reel is constructed from durable polypropylene with a chromed brass centre spindle which has the double function of providing structural strength and ultra-smooth reel operation.
Warning Note: As instructed, you SHOULD NOT have a reel attached to any part of your kit or use the wrist-strap when sending an SMB to the surface
