The Ocean Hunter 3 ATM float can be pumped up to a higher PSI than any other float on the market. This float inflates to the incredible 44lb PSI rating which is MUCH HIGHER than the 29lb rating on any Gannet float. This allows this pressurized float to maintain its buoyancy at deeper depths. This float has about 100 pounds of buoyancy, maintained to a depth of 66 feet before it starts to compress under pressure.
The Neptonics crew recently went down to the Coral Sea and tested these floats out. Six Sea Hunter Floats were put through to the test. 10 days in the sun, hundreds of feet deep, dogtooth tuna, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and marlin. Bullet Proof!! These floats performed flawlessly under the greatest stresses we could put them through. You can’t get a higher PSI rating or a more trusted float. This 3 ATM Float is hands down the Neptonics Team’s favorite pressurized float. The durability and performance of these floats make them the best option for 3 ATM floats on the market.
Inflates to 44 PSI for huge lift capacity at depth.
