New Products to be introduced at Scuba Show 2005 (Long Beach, CA)

May 18, 2005

ReefNet will be introducing two brand new products at this year's Scuba Show in Long Beach, CA (May 21-22, 2005):

The SubSee Magnifier is a high-quality underwater hand magnifier. Unlike conventional magnifying glasses, SubSee doesn't lose any power underwater and it is optically corrected to eliminate distortion and chromatic abberation. You've got to see it to believe it!

Also being debuted is ReefNet's new Underwater Calendar series. At just $5 each, these beautiful and functional desk calendars make great gifts for divers...but you'll want one for yourself too! Each 21-month calendar highlights a different aspect of underwater life. Initial releases are "Textures" and "Creatures".
