View Full Version : BladeFish Sea Jet

Has anyone used one of these: BladeFish Sea Jet (http://bladefishdirect.com/) specifically the BladeFish 5000 (http://bladefishdirect.com/bladefish-5000.html) and how do they compare to the Sea-Doo Sea Scooter (http://www.seascooterexpress.com/) line. I'm looking at it primarily as a travel sea scooter (http://www.seascooterexpress.com/) and was hoping someone had some experience with it.

What a bizarre looking scooter, but as long as it works! I can't imagine traveling with anything like that on an airline though.

So how long have you been representing the Sea Scooter Express company? ;)

I have seen the Bladefish a few times. My friend just got one in fact. I am pretty skeptical about it as I can't imagine it has enough power to really move someone underwater, but he swears it works good. It is very small and lightweight, maybe 8lbs or so. The one he has has 3 speeds I think and looks all kinds of fancy. Bottom line is if it really works well, then it would be an amazing thing.

By the way it did get a gear of the year rating or something like that in one of the print publications.

Let me know if you get to try it. Next time I am down in Florida I will try to convince him to let me give it a whirl.

the bf 5000 is now a couple of months on the market. ids there anybody who used it and can tell anything about the acual speed. i read and hear a lot of negative thing about it. and if you see the movie ion Utube it looks very slow.
a was intended to buy some for teaching dpv specialties and doing try/ leisure dives with it but i'm not sure anymore.

I think it does work, but I also think it is going to be very slow. If you want something fast you need to forget these and be prepared to spend $3-5k to get something really good. Of course for travel, these are about the only option.
