Hallo all.

 

I am wondering if anyone knows which strobe has the deepest depth rating on the market.

I want to be able to use it for dives  up to 130mtr/420ft 

Thank you in advance

Inon z240 are rated to 100m, but I know people using them regularly to 130m.

No contest, the seacam offshore series of strobes have the deepest depth rating at 200m. However, for the cost of a pair of seacam seaflash 150O's, you're probably better off taking a pair of Inons down and risking the occasional loss of a strobe.

I've had Inon z240s to 140m many times, no ill effects. Ikelite DS125/161s also seem to handle the depth ok, though I've only taken them to 120-130m.
