The <WIDE-EYE> is a robust, light weight and high quality 4"" diameter underwater viewing scope constructed to assist the gold prospector for sniping rock crevices and searching the surface of gravels in streams and rivers.
This scope design incorporates the standard, time tested features of a black internal wall surface to reduce internal reflected light for improved viewing ability and vent openings on the lens protector to allow air to escape from the front surface of the viewing window during use.
The vents on this new device are different, they are not simple round holes but rather long slots that are more efficient for allowing water with all the air bubbles on the acrylic window surface to more rapidly pass through providing an immediate and perfect unobstructed view.
The large 4"" diameter viewing area is provided to allow the user to see with both eyes more comfortably and clearly than would be allowed by a long narrow 3"" diameter tube design.
There is a total of 25% greater viewing surface area with this model compared to 3"" diameter tubes. The further away the eye is to the target (length) and the narrower the viewing area (diameter), the more the decrease in the user's ability to see targets easily and as a consequence more targets could be missed.
This design also incorporates a translucent white lens protector that allows light to pass through under normal lighting conditions. This is an added advantage in that it will eliminate the unwanted shadows and ambient light blockage generated by all other viewing tubes using opaque black lens protectors.
One attribute that sets this particular underwater viewing scope apart from any other available device is its ability to provide a well lit viewing area when very close to or in contact with the bottom of a stream bed or tide pool.
The most unique feature of this new viewer, that is a full step above all the rest - there is no need to carry a separate flashlight while you hunt. This quality viewer has a built in water resistant, super bright LED illumination source.
While an illumination source may not be needed most of the time, it sure does come in handy when it is! This design feature allows the user to readily shine a light down at anytime to see where other typical devices can't - such as in stained water, in dimly lit areas, under a shadowed structure, down a hole or even during the dark of night.
Rough or moving water is sometimes a problem for single handle underwater viewers: this will not be an issue as the <WIDE-EYE> has two opposing, full grip, parallel handles for complete double handed control when in use under flowing water conditions.
All these improved underwater viewing scope attributes will take the user to far more hard to view areas with greater clarity and better visibility than any other underwater viewing tube currently available.
A properly constructed underwater viewing scope should not only let the user see underwater but allow viewing targets under many differing conditions - not just under optimum lighting conditions alone.

While designed to allow the easy sighting of gold nuggets in shallow underwater conditions, there are several other useful applications that go hand-in-hand with this device.
The <WIDE-EYE> is useful for hunting relics, fossils, shark teeth, gem stones, viewing wildlife in underwater habitats or just plain looking around at the sites.
Many individuals such as biologists, anglers, flat water boaters, photographers, rock hounds, fossickers and teachers to name a few can all use this handy tool for underwater viewing during outings at a stream, lake, beach, or tide pool of interest without ever getting submerged or even wet under some circumstances.
Dredge operators can use this device to watch their partner's activity from the surface during an underwater dredging operation without the need to use a mask and snorkel.
The <WIDE-EYE> comes standard in a working length of 17 inches with a satin white outer surface and the upper rim edge trimmed in protective neoprene rubber for comfortable face contact should you need to get in as close as possible to view your target of interest.
The completely assembled weight of this great device is a nominal 1 pound - total. (This is less weight than the same length of 3 inch diameter black ABS pipe alone that is commonly used for construction of other less capable viewers.)
This scope also floats and will not sink to the bottom such as ABS plastic tube viewers do when dropped into the water by accident. There is no lighter device of similar or useful construction available anywhere - bar none!
