Torpedo scooters now come in three sizes: the 3500 model zooms underwater at 3.5mph/45minutes, the 2500 zips along at 2.5mph/ 55minutes, and the 2000 model parts the water at 2mph/80minutes. Beside these technical speed feats, Torpedo scooters are simple to seal and easy to use. A wrist strap magnet held next to the handle bar starts up the quiet propeller of the Torpedo, moves the magnetic strap away, and the torpedo quickly comes to a stop. Best of all, because of the additional weight, the Torpedo is easily one of the best dive devices to hold vertically above one spot to blow away sand and excavate sediment off a substrate full of hidden silver artifacts, Spanish gold doubloons, or even more importantly, to reveal a treasure filled field of clams.

Make it smaller and make it pink. This is the approach taken by dive equipment designers and manufacturers in the not-so-distant past. Another popular strategy is simply relabeling men’s sizes as “unisex".
