We spotted this on the Dive Gear Express stand at the 2013 Beneath the Sea dive show. ‘The FAS-t’ from White Arrow.

This device aids a diver to quickly measure existing deployed cave line at a rapid pace. It can be operated with one hand and will be a useful tool for cave explorers, cave scientists and surveying enthusiasts.

The nice thing about the FAS-t is that it does not require pre-knotted line or measuring tapes to be attached to the line. The 4 digit resettable counter is bi-lingual (feet or metres), and can even measure in centimetres for archaeological purposes.

The FAS-t has also been designed to accommodate a variety of line thicknesses, and includes attachments for a compass and survey pad.
