HASH(0x98ac76b4) out of 5 stars Dive Rite Slate 4 Mar. 2012

It's the right size and functions, however the plastic clip broke the very first time I pulled it back. If you plan on replacing the clip with brass or SS it'll do you fine.
HASH(0x9917ec3c) out of 5 stars Looks like an excellent slate and, even if it isn't, a source of replacement graphite pencils 4 Oct. 2015
By John Bowler - Published on Amazon.com

For the price (I paid $8 1/2) potentially an excellent product. I have not used it yet but felt I should write a review because of the non-availability of good pencils for diving slates: the wooden ones that Trident and, I believe, other manufacturers use absorb water and cease to work (the graphite core slides in and out if a way that would be amusing if you weren't 90' under water; I have personal experience of this.)

The Dive Rite slate has a "woodless" graphite pencil, of the type readily available on Amazon, e.g.:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O98JS1Q?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_29

and a knotted-bungee-plus-plastic-nubin attachment that makes it potentially (I have yet to test this) easy to replace the pencil. Other manufacturers use thin plastic tube that rips open.

That's really enough to justify the price, given the competition:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008XB3Z6O?keywords=Storm%20Replacement%20Graphite%20Pencil%20for%20Scuba%20Diving%20Slates&qid=1443930837&ref_=sr_1_1&s=sporting-goods&sr=1-1

You can throw away the slate, keep the clip (as other reviews say, you might want to replace it) and the plastic nubin and you are set for life.

That said, the rest of the product seems good too; six 'slates' linked with split rings (attach the snap lock to a split ring; if you put it through the hole as in the picture flipping the slates requires manual dexterity and, as other reviewer comment, this is inconvenient.) The slates are conveniently small; 3 1/2" x 5", yet big enough and easy to flip over (12 surfaces total).

I can see two possibilities for storage; a spring retractor or a BCD pocket (most non-wrist slates are too big to fit).

Time and a few dives will tell.
HASH(0x98f8d168) out of 5 stars So close... 4 Dec. 2015

This slate would be perfect if they had used a different type of plastic. The problem is it is virtually impossible to erase. Typically, a magic eraser clears a slate in a few seconds. Underwater, a little sand will do the same thing. That is definitely not true in this case. Even sandpaper doesn't work well. I'll wet sand every page to make them less coarse, which will probably help, but that's a pretty major hassle.

Aside from that, it is perfect for technical divers carrying backup decompression schedules and other critical information, with pages left over for taking notes and passing messages underwater--if only you could erase them!

I won't bother with the plastic clip. It's not that big a deal, but I replaced it with stainless.

So, as-is, I don't love it for the reasons above, but the idea is right on. My $8 slate ended up wasting time and costing more like $13, but compared to everything else you need for deep technical dives, let alone the price of helium, it's inconsequential. Underwater, it is exactly the right tool.
HASH(0x989d5ab0) out of 5 stars Great multi-sheet slate! 9 Jun. 2016
By Wetendor - Published on Amazon.com

I have been pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the Dive Rite items. This slate has multiple sheets fastened by 2 metal rings on the top and all the sheets exhibit a hole on the bottom middle area to clip the plastic fastener with lanyard and pencil attached. The pencil works great and smooth. The cord is a stretchy type and can be easily tied onto other fasteners. Because the plastic fastener wasn't the greatest, I removed it. I also removed one of the top metal rings. I added an extra fastener to the remaining metal ring and attached the pencil cord to the metal fastener. This way I didn't have to worry about using the same fastener to hold onto my book and my BCD. I use one metal fastener that is permanently attached to my slate and pencil. The slate is a bit small, but since there are multiple sheets, I'm not worried.

I was expecting to have something to sheath the pencil in but it would seems to just dangle. You also need to use the hook and eye to change to pages. One possible advantage is to devote one page to each day of diving; then unhook the and go to the next page.

The pencil seems to first class, but no sure on the replacement unless you go to the "golf" score-type pencil.

You could spend some time 'flipping" back to the previous pages if you kept them clipped together.

The quality is excellent but the execution could use some thought.
