John E. Cayford Master Scuba Diver, Chief Diver Undersea Operations DAte of Test: 11 June & 24 June Place of Test: Atlantic Ocean; Sand Beach, Ocean Drive, Mt. Desert Island, Me.

The Spearfisherman Seamless Rubber Frogman Diving Dress was worn on two dives into the Atlantic in some of its coldest waters, and put through various tests to determine its usefulness as cold water diving dress of the dry type style. The suit performed perfectly throughout the number of various positions in which I put it. It did not cut down underwater speed in a 500 yard speed burst, nor did it leak at any of the openings. We have used other front entry suits, but have had trouble with the chute and leakage. Because of its great amount of flexibility, and the exceptional quality of the rubber in the suit, it is one of the best I have had the privilege to use and test. Without doubt, it is the finest front entry suit in its price class, and because of its exceptional qualities, many of the State's new divers are purchasing it. clg.
