I was using the Sharkbanz original for over one year and recently bought a Sharkbanz 2. The improvements over the original are noticeable right away. The rubber material is softer and more comfortable. The overall shape is more streamlined and it is less bulky. No issues at all. I like to surf early in the morning, it gives me peace of mind so I can relax more in the lineup. I would buy again.

Been using Sharkbanz for a year now. My background is a surfer for 48 years (where'd all that time go?), a physician and amateur (but with extensive knowledge) icthyologist. First, the product is easily wearable- I purchased the original model for myself, my son and daughter (both avid surfers) and 2 surf buddies, one of whom currently lives and surfs in the Maldives ( I spent 2 weeks with him there last year - yes, it's all that it's said to be and more). We've all been wearing the Sharkbanz regularly and no one has noted any interference with surfing (my Maldives buddy also wears it snorkeling and diving). I now have the new model, and while I haven't worn it in the water, wearing it around the house for an hour, it's even less noticeable. Now for the important aspect- does it work? I have extensive knowledge of physiology and my daughter is a graduate in zoology who is currently in the marine animal tourist business (big black and white critters- you can figure it out). The science is theoretically solid and having looked at the research data and spoken to Nathan ( always enjoyable to talk science with him) I do believe in this product. Of note, they are still actively involved in monitoring the effectiveness of Sharkbanz and actively seek out data from users. That says a lot.

I have a surfing instruction business and use Sharkbanz 2 (We have 8) for all my instructors. These are great for deterring stingrays, as my instructors swear by them. Our instructors used to get stung by rays all the time before using the Sharkbanz 2. This device is awesome!!
why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
