Yup, that's the fella. Though you'll probably want to replace the wrist strap or at least check that it comes with bungie loops to replace that velcro strap.

Nah, don't be daft... the guy has had a box of pencils under his bed for a year. He's sold about 10, I think... so a couple of samples for free will be easy enough to arrange.

The snapping thing might pi$$ you off, so try one before you spend anything.... at $1 a shot, they're not cheap you know!!

You may find Wetnotes are better than a slate.

They hides away in a pocketses when you arent using them, can be passed to buddy easy. Easier to write on. Dont take up room on wrist. More room to writes stuffs, write commonly used deco profiles, rules of thumb, send noteses up on dsmbeses, pass evil noteses to one buddy about another... etc.

the pencils sound good though...

I had some wet notes which were awesome, but they're now at the bottom of the ocean...(did someone forget to clip them off :oops: )

Slates are ok...wetnotes (if you have pockets on your dry/wet suit) are better.

So much more info can be held on them too. I'm going to get some more if I don't find them when I dive the same spot next month....fingers crossed...

Bummer!! Hopefully you find them again! Good luck!!

That IS an advantage of slates I guess. A little less likely to go AWOL.

I had a deco bottle do that once, fully rigged. Someone didnt clip it on the line properly after the dive (wasnt me) and it went down in over 80m in a fairly stiff current. Was a little upset, to say the least. Oh well.

Re-instating an old post...
Who was it that had these pencils? Are any of them still kicking around? I would be keen to get my hands on some.

Hey Mike,

As per my FB PM message. You should try and get your hands on these.

They will be perfect and will probably be a bunch cheaper
