Emergency Upline Reels


The Emergency Upline Reel is used for rigging an ascent line where an ordinary line reel would be inadequate. Rot-resistant reusable 1/8" nylon line allows a safe tethered ascent from any depth in even the strongest currents.

This reel differs from a typical "Jersey" reel in that it is carried for emergency use rather than every day use. The low-profile design allows it to be bungied unobtrusively between double tanks, or alongside a single. A necessary piece of equipment for any deep diver.
