You may have seen my blog about the new Bladefish 7000 sea scooter earlier this month. I had the distinct pleasure of testing the new sea scooter, the latest offering from the Bladefish range which is imported into Australia by Oceanic.
Some new features that I enjoyed most were: - with 3 gears, the top speed is now 6.5km per hour - a new camera mounting system with a screw thread for POV (point of view) shooting.
My buddy Leigh, from MoistMultiMedia, filmed my first dive with the Bladefish 7000 and made the following product review movie for us:
Why do you need a sea scooter?

But most of all: it is fun!
