2) anything that pulls you at 3mph would make kicking irrelevant - and more of a nuissance.
3) the only scooter I know that gets close to as fast as they claim (3.75mph)for as long as they claim - costs $6750.
Truth: This is a great snorkeling scooter. It is light... the battery life is awesome as the advertisement claims but notice the star next to the run time. That run time is not continuous 120 minutes - it is 2 hours under "normal use". This means stop and go. With that said - I have run the thing in the ground to near dead and it goes way over an hour so thumbs way up on battery performance! (FYI I weigh 200-210llbs) For a snorkeler/rapid diver with an extra $700 - this is your dream device!
False: I've seem some interesting blogs and advertisements - even people tethering this device to their scuba gear. I've used it on a 100' dive and I can say with absolute truth it will pull you - at a slow swimming pace. You will find yourself wanting to kick - thus negating many of the air saving features of a scooter. This is marketed as a scuba scooter to scuba divers. It CAN work in this fashion but don't expect it to replace the normal torpedo scooter. The technology is not there and I promise if you run it along side any normal torpedo - you will be dissappointed.Read more ›
Cons: Noisier than the Seadoo, scares off some species of fish, not as fast as advertised, to reach 3 miles you need a to pump in your fins, not as easy to drive as it seems.
The unit was sent back to me and I tried to take apart the Bladefish but after an hour can not take it apart.
I am one very unhappy Bladefish 5000 user! I would NOT advise anybody to purchase this! It is trash now!

First of all this just doesn't work. Second, if this is a scooter, then I'm a bear in a circus that juggles knives. They definitely don't understand the concept of a scooter.Published on February 3, 2014 by James Tavern
