Metalsub XRE 1200-R – Our Rating

It’s a tough scuba torch with a really bright light, perfect for tough UK diving conditions. Priced at £250, this is more expensive than a lot of scuba torches on the market, but the reality is that you really do get what you pay for. Lightweight without feeling flimsy and equipped with power save modes and wireless charging technology, it’s a high performance product for the serious diver.

If you dive shallow in light and clear waters and don’t dive frequently, you probably don’t need to invest in a product like this one. But if you’re diving in the low visibility waters of the UK and you are doing so regularly, then you’ll want to invest in a high performance light. This is a great choice for regular divers as a primary light.

Bright, bold and smart.

Our rating: 4.5 out of 5
