I've recently bought an SMB & reel ready for a spot of boat diving, but have no formal training in their use. I've seen them used, & the principle is pretty staright forward, but I'd be grateful if anyone has any tips, pointers or gotchas that might be of use.

Many thanks!

don't add to the barotrauma stats by NOT clipping the reel to you during deployment....

Thanks DG, good tip!

What about bouyancy? Is it advisable to be a bit negative when deploying? Should I use my hand to control the deployment or just let the cord run free?
