Strange weight from Europe

Wed Mar 29, 2017 6:20 pm

The Scuba Museum just had this weight donated from Europe. The organization that donated it did not have any info. It weighs about three pounds 10 ounces and appears to attach tot he belt through a grommet or hole in the belt.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Not that familiar with them, but it looks like a Poseidon weight.

Rob, I've seen similar weights. They were made by a company I think called King.. The weight belt was nylon and there were grommet holes in the belt and you attached the weight to the grommet. Can't remember the name of the company though if that was it or not. I think they were used for skin divers belts, spearfishing.
