    Hogarthian help

    @FishWatcher747, it is me, not you, I get to intense shall we say, I am sorry for that. I should start all my posts with an apology. I just do not want the poor fellow to cut his webbing before he has it somewhat Hog since he wanted Hog help :wink:. The weight pockets, lol, whatever. I have seen...

    Hogarthian help

    He can put whatever pockets he wants to anywhere he wants but personal preference does not make it Hogathian nor is there anything unusal about him or his physique that would require him to mount pockets intended for the waist on the cam bands. He asked if people saw anything and that is what I...

    If you have the buckle on the left waist strap then you have the buckle itself backwards. Something is not right. Those weight pockets were intended for the waist straps, not the cam bands, you need trim weight pockets there on the cam bands. Edit---Oh, okay, he is shooting into a mirror, duh...

    Those weight pockets look a bit extreme. Most people just use a trim weight up there, not their entire ballast. The buckle goes on the left waist strap, you have that reversed I think. Yes, you really should change that before you start cutting if so. This actually a pretty clean tutorial aside...

    Some Newbie Thoughts on Gear

    I hate rental gear and would not faff with rental gear at all. Buy your own gear. I also prefer new over used save for my compulsive disorder involving double hose regulators and certain specific single hose jobs :wink:. But, the warning is that your needs will evolve and change and you may...

    DA Aquamaster Retaining Nut

    Using a soft brass or aluminum drift you can usually tap, tap on the retainer ring and it will come free. The big concern is not to hold the can to torque against regardless of the tool used. There is a little locating tab on the brass bottom can that can be easily sheared off if too much torque...

    why more than 60-100' of line for a DSMB?

    The dsmb I showed has the no-notch adapter for filling from a LP hose, which I do. https://www.piranhadivemfg.com/item/Stainless-Steel-Metal-Filler-Inflator-15632 https://www.piranhadivemfg.com/item/45-Orange-Closed-SMB-wOPV--14327 I have not had good luck with the open bottom types with the...

    why more than 60-100' of line for a DSMB?

    It depends upon how you intend to inflate it? If you are going to use your regulator then you need an open bottom. If you are going to orally inflate or use a fitting off your LP inflator hose then a close bottom. I have multiple spools and dsmbs from 3 feet to gargantuan. I prefer a 4 foot...

    Hogarthian help

    I usually put one cam buckle left and the other right with my weight pockets, if one on both cam bands, one left, one right. The Hog harmess should be run with the waist buckle fitted to the left side and webbing lengths set to run the buckle fully to the right. In other words, the buckle is...

    Question Scuba pro Jet fins

    I wear a 10.5 in Sperry, 10 in DocMartin and USA 11 in Nike and New Balance and with a Mares Classic 5mm boot I use Jet Fin size XL, OMS Slipstream size XL, Eddy size L, Go-Sport size L, Quattro size Regular. If that helps. I think you could go with the XL. You want the goofy Jet foot pocket to...

    Fin recomendation wanted

    I think you would like the OMS Slipstreams. If you like Jets but want a lighter version, somewhat stiffer and monoprene instead of rubber just get a pair :). They are frog kicking weapons!!!!!!!! They suck at flutter because the blades are so wide they run into one another. Again these all are...

    Fin recomendation wanted

    Maybe you were using the Go Travel Fin instead of the Go Sport fin? If there is a problem running into a current with the Go-Sport I just do not think the Eddy will do much better. I will say I think the precurve of the Go-Sport makes up for the stiffer mid section of the Eddy. Both are superb...
