Product description

North Florida cave diver, Woody Jasper, first invented the Explorer Reel around 1980.

As cave explorations were becoming longer, deeper, and more extensive a reel was needed that could help an explorer make some serious penetrations into a virgin cave system. 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 aficionados 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.

* DuPont fiber braid line provides strength and minimizes fraying.

* Cave series reels use #24 braid line giving 220-lbs of breakage strength. Wreck series reels use #36 braid line giving 350-lbs of breakage strength.

* Injection molded ABS spool resists breakage and cracking.

* Marine grade stainless steel axle is corrosion resistant.

* High quality aircraft grade aluminum frame is corrosion resistant.

* Marine grade stainless steel bolt snap is corrosion resistant.

* Knurled lockdown screw has a low profile to prevent snagging

* 2.68 lbs (1.21 kg)
