HOLLIS Gear recently announced that it had begun to ship its Convertible Diving Spool.
Company President Nick Hollis said the product was based on White Arrow-inspired designs.
The new spool is abrasion resistant and the line is braided Dupont high-visibility Dacron, thinner than No. 24 nylon yet stronger than No. 36 nylon, according to Hollis. “The convertible spool can easily be switched from a reel configuration to a finger spool in minutes,” he added.
The unit also features a marine-grade, 4-inch double-ended snap and can fit inside a drysuit pocket or be clipped on a D-Ring. The removeable handle allows it to quickly convert into a finger spool.
Priced at US$129.95, the warm-water version is available now, while a cold-water version will come out next month.
