CR2 Reel

This revolutionary reel has been specifically designed to meet the unique ergonomic requirements of cave divers.  However, because of its ease of use and versatile grip it may well become the choice of many divers during exploration.
The most innovative feature of the CR-2 is its soft “Goodman” style handle which is adjustable and ambidextrous.  The adjustable handle enables the diver to obtain a firm, secure grasp without compromising comfort and control.  The location of the handle enables the diver to control line deployment and retrieval by placing fingers, palm or heel of the hand on the spool.

Following Manta’s tradition of quality products the CR-2 has been designed to perform consistently year after year.

  • The aluminum uni-body frame is bent from a single aluminum plate.  After machining it is anodized to reduce oxidation.
  • The soft stretchable handle is designed to contact spool, which helps prevent line jump and reduce jams.
  • The nylon thumbscrew is positioned to be unobtrusive. If lost it can be replaced with any plastic or S/S ¼-20 threaded screw or bolt.Use caution not to unscrew out of frame.
  • Spool is machined out of a single piece of UHMW which has one of the highest resistances to the elements, and is supplied w/250 ft of #24 nylon braided line.
  • A 4 ½” double-ended brass bolt snap is provided for a quick release from adjustable handle or D’ring . Any bolt snap may be used as a back-up locking system by clipping it into either 9/16” hole in side of spool.
