    DIR- Generic Why donate your primary?

    So what happens to the diver, who gets his reg pulled out of his mouth? Does the body immediately shut the airways? What if you are breathing in at the moment it happens?

    DIR- Generic Why donate your primary?

    Yeah man, I already am moving in this direction and have invested in new equipment + GUE Fundies. Just like to discuss small, possibly pointless details of the old DIR Videos wording. You are supposed to understand why things are the way they are I've learned.

    DIR- Generic Why donate your primary?

    OK, but why would you not know that the backup works though? Also, assuming you don't know that the backup works for some reason, how is it solution to donate the working one and end up with the non working one yourself? Then you just switched roles: panicked diver becomes calm, calm diver...

    DIR- Generic Why donate your primary?

    I just read a very old pdf, "blueprint for survival", where some situations were described including a slow deployment of backup reg and a person grabbing the reg from the donators mouth. I guess that makes a lot of sense. You know where your mouth is and so does the oog diver. You can also...

    DIR- Generic Why donate your primary?

    Absolutely. This used to happen to me all the time, and I was always having trouble keeping track of where my octo is, where my buddy's octo is, where even my buddy is. I am just trying to figure out some of the finer points about the hog rig, like the "you know what gas it is" argument. Maybe...

    DIR- Generic Why donate your primary?

    This is exactly what I don't get. I should know that both my backup and my primary have the correct gas anyway. If I could by accident grab a reg from a bottle with unsuitable gas, I could make the same mistake for myself. You need to to have 2 regs, of which you know where they are and what gas...

    DIR- Generic Halcyon light buckle and ACB weights?

    hmm I may not need those pockets after all. With the two pockets on the tank presumably holding 2kg each I would have 4+2 from the backplate = exactly what I need now. And I assume the 2 backup lights add a little weight as well.

    DIR- Generic Halcyon light buckle and ACB weights?

    I normally dive with 6kg, which already is a little overweight, I am aiming to reduce that in the future. I was thinking 4kg on the tank and each 1kg in in each pocket (so there is a balance on both sides).

    DIR- Generic Why donate your primary?

    I am not sure I completely understand the rationale behind donating your primary hose. The main arguments seem to be: You are encouraged to have a HQ backup regulator, since you donate your primary You are encouraged to have a working, serviced backup regulator, since you donate your primary...

    DIR- Generic Halcyon light buckle and ACB weights?

    I have 2 tank pockets which can hold 4 kg. But I may need more, normally I dive with 6. That is however with a jacket. The dude at the shop said you can't have more than 2 cam band pockets.

    DIR- Generic Halcyon light buckle and ACB weights?

    So what if you need extra weight? Can you have 4 adaptor based weight pockets? Or would so many not be needed as the backplate, adaptor and backup lights already add a lot of weight?

    DIR- Generic Halcyon light buckle and ACB weights?

    I have a halcyon infinity single tank setup. On both bottom sides of the backplate there are two pieces of webbing bolted to the backplate: left a webbing with the D ring, right a reinforced webbing for the light which comes with a sliding buckle, for securing the light. When using the ACB...

    DIR- Generic How to secure the back pad on a halcyon backplate?

    They don't. The holes are simple round holes.

    DIR- Generic How to secure the back pad on a halcyon backplate?

    Hello, I recently bought a halcyon infinity BC. It comes with a back pad, you are supposed to screw on with bolts and nuts, which look like these: However, when I screw the screw in, the whole thing starts to turn (bolt and nut). What is supposed to hold the nut in place, while you screw...

    Do the hoses, which come with Apeks regs have the "crystallisation" problem?

    How new are we talking? Just bought works xtx50s. Shouldn't be too old right? Guess I'll ask customer support, I thought they may be active here.
