This is one purchase I hope I never have to use!
So, thankfully I can't review the product because I hope I NEVER have to use it. What is worth noting is that this unit has the best price point, features and useful life expectancy of all the PLB options I've seen here in NZ.
What IS superb is the service from Skippers Mate. Certainly a case of best price, best product and absolutely best service.
Can't really review the performance of the product but size is good light and small hopefully never get to use it but long over due getting one price is good as well service and delivery was awesome thanks
Excellent product and service
Thanks for rapid delivery. Looks the biz. Hope I never have to find out whether it works but I certainly feel much happier having this little device in my lifejacket!
Great fast and efficient delivery. skippersmate.co.nz very good to deal with.
Very happy with purchase and speed of delivery.
Good morning, Peter. Thank you - my PLB from Skippers Mate arrived this morning. I won't be using it for marine use - instead, it's for fishing, hiking and photography in the Southern Alps, where there is no cell phone coverage. Considering it was despatched during the holiday period, it arrived remarkably quickly . . it puts NZ Post to shame (they can take up to 5 working days for a letter from Auckland to Christchurch). Frequently, I can receive delivery from Amazon.co.uk faster than I can from Auckland! Thanks again for your help - and for the informative emails regarding despatch and delivery to me. Very efficient! It has definitely been a pleasure to do business with Skippers Mate and I would have no hesitation in recommending you with a glowing report. Very best regards (and a happy and prosperous New Year to you) - Allan H

I ordered Wed and Beacon arrived on Sat morning, very happy with the prompt delivery, quicker than if I bought it in NZ. Well packaged with all that is shown in photo and very reasonable pricing. Looking forward to the added security that this will provide in knowing help is not to far away in an emergency. 10 year battery life is a great bonus, and hope I never have to use beacon. Thanks for great service Peter.

Haven't tested the product in anger but price for a well-known product was good and came with extras. Very good communication, prompt delivery and when one of extras was not the correct one, a replacement was sent immediately. Would definitely use again.
