Dive Rite Slide Lock reels offer a couple of unique benefits associated with their design. The Dive Rite spools are held in place with an e-clip, making it a simple matter to remove and replace the spool. This means the diver can inventory spools loaded with several different types of line and quickly swap the line load in order to configure the reel for a specific mission. The design also means it is quick and easy to clear a reel jam by removing the spool. (The Dive Rite reels are not prone to jams, far from it, but we've yet to see the 'jam proof' reel. Reel jams occur regardless of brand or design because the proper function of any reel also depends, in part, on the skill of the user and sometimes just plain bad luck.)

Shipping was fast as usual with DGX, the reel made very well and will last a very long time. Sadly I was only able to use it once as I lost it on the very next dive. The double bolt snap that comes with the reel came loose of the reel end and I had no idea it was missing until after the dive.

Fast and Efficient Reel
Apr 6, 2020
Fast and efficient reel to lay and retrieve lines plus one-handed slide-lock eliminates the pain of thumb screws. Bought this to replace a cheap plastic reel that always faught me (tangled) and finally broke. Dive Rite raised the bar with this reel. Solid and smooth action. Ordered mine loaded with orange dacron line...sure can't miss it when flashlight beam hits it. Came with a stainless double-ender.

Great Reel
Apr 10, 2017
After trying a number of different reels, I settled on this one. It is much less likely to jam and is easier to clear. Ergonomically, it’s easy to use. And it’s light.

Not useful.

It is hard to use because the line withdrawal port and the lever's stopper position are opposite side.
