It would seem that GUE (Global Underwater Explorers) is quietly having an impact on torch design.
Scubapro’s latest offerings; the sleek looking NOVA 700 and 700R (R = rechargeable) can be secured to a harness by simply tying a clip to the end of the light body.
Both torches are machined from heavy-duty aluminum, use the same light head and have a simple twist-on / twist-off actuation.
Scubapro state the strategically placed knurling (raised diamond-shaped indentations in the body) improves grip and makes the twist activation that much easier.
The Nova 700 is the larger of the two at 22.2 cm / 8.7 inches long and it has a 10 hour burn time, compared to the 700R at 14 cm / 5.5 inches with a burn time of 2.5 hours.
