In the early days of cave diving, reels were not available to buy off the shelf. Divers used anything they could, including empty electrical wire spools. When exploring, divers would pay out the line and if they didn’t empty the spool it would be left in the cave for the next dive. The Finger Spool is most often used as a gap reel or for short distance exploration. Small and low-profile, a spool fits nicely out of the way in a pocket or clipped-off to a D-ring. The holes in the side allow for clipping in a double-ended snap anywhere along the perimeter of the spool to keep the line tight when not in use.
Innovative as the name implies is what Innovative Scuba Concepts has created with these finger spools. Most all finger spools are easy to pay-out line by placing your thumb and index finger in the spools center hole. By holding them this way you can allow the line two rotate the spool between your fingers as the pals-out. The problem is rewinding the line back onto the spool. Innovative Scuba’s popular finger spools are now available with hinged hand winders built in! Simply lift the hinged tabs and begin winding! The finger spools are available with 150′, 100′, or 65′ (45.7m, 30.5m or 20m) of nylon line. The spools are made from impact resistant plastic and come equipped with a double-ended spring-loaded slide brass snap clip.
