Shark Shield SCUBA7

Trusted by thousands of professionals around the world the SCUBA7 is a must have piece of safety equipment. Most importantly it's comfortable and lightweight to wear in the water and dive with so you won't have to worry about it being a burden. The SCUBA7 is stored in its own neoprene pouch that easily attaches to your ankle or calf, with the low drag antenna trailing behind you and providing complete freedom to enjoy your scuba diving, sports diving or technical diving. The SCUBA7 is compact, versatile and light weight and is the leading personal shark deterrent system on the market today which allows you to explore and enjoy the oceans without fear. With over twenty years of world class research and independent testing, including the Kwa-Zulu Natal Shark Board in South Africa, the SCUBA7 is scientifically proven to reduce the risk of an unwanted shark encounter. Shark Shield technology is the only independently tested and scientifically proven electronic shark deterrent on the market and you can see the research here. It is for this reason alone that Shark Shield is mandated safety equipment in industries such as Abalone Diving and is used by the Australian and US Navies.

Setting up the Shark Shield SCUBA7 is quick and easy to do yourself too. Simply attach the two electrodes, one is fitted to the ankle or calf region with the supplied neoprene pouch with secure Velcro closure system and the other is fitted to the tank with the supplied Velcro fittings. Once the antennas are submerged in salt water the electrodes emit the protective field allowing you to dive in freedom. Note it is advised that a full wetsuit is worn. The SCUBA7 antenna has been designed to cause minimal water resistance and drag on the diver and creates less drag than that off theFREEDOM7  as the trailing antenna is smaller.

The field generated by the Shark Shield is detected by the shark through its sensory receptors known as Ampullae of Lorenzini, situated on the snout of all predatory sharks. The unique and unfamiliar pulsing sensation emitted by the Shark Shield does not replicate that given off by a fish and does not attract sharks to an area. Shark Shield's unique wave form elliptical field only affects free swimming sharks and to a minor degree rays and skates. Shark Shield allows you to hunt, photograph or just swim with all other marine animals roaming freely in their ocean settings. For those divers who plan on giving their units a lot of usage, Shark Shield also offer a 3 Year Extended Warranty so you can get even more peace of mind to enjoy your investment and your favourite pastimes. The extended warranty ensures your valuable purchase is 100% protected.

Technical Diver, USA

In the midst of a cloud of fish and blood I put the second grouper on the stringer. I am determined not to let these bulls have their way as they rush in trying to get to the fish during my slow ascent from 130 feet all the way up to the surface. As they charge in, I am glad that I have my Shark Shield turned on. This wonderful invention puts a protective electrical field around me that shocks the sensory receptors called Ampullae of Lorenzini in the shark”s snout. I love wearing the Shark Shield while spearfishing because it helps turn sharks away and causes them to think twice before accidentally or intentionally biting me. The best version of the Shark Shield for spearfishing, in my opinion, is the Freedom 2 or 4 unit. The electronics and battery are in a neoprene pouch that is strapped to your calf. From this pouch extends a seven foot long tether antenna containing two electrodes, which trails unobtrusively behind the diver. I like this unit because it is easy to take on and off between dives and there is no interference with your kicking, you tend to almost forget it is there. The manufacturer says Freedom 4 is fast becoming the most popular unit for those who dive. Freedom 2 has a 2 hour battery pack, whereas the Freedom 4 has a 4 hour battery. I was an early adopter of this technology, having used it now for almost two years. I usually leave the Shark Shield turned off until I spear a fish, unless I already see sharks or the visibility is low. The Shark Shield can shock you and your fellow divers if the tether antenna is touched, but the tingle is not a bad shock. The electric pulse the Shark Shield puts out every half-second only affects sharks, rays and skates. Other fish and marine creatures are not disturbed. It does not scare away the fish we are seeking to spear and it does not attract sharks to you. The effective protective range in my observations starts about ten to fifteen feet away as the shark approaches. His initial discomfort increases as he gets closer until it becomes intolerable. The shark then veers away. The bottom line is that this is a great product that works well. I will not leave home without it. The Shark Shield is the best solution for spearfishing with sharks on the market today.
