    Mantus Marine dive compressor

    The manual might be fun reading - more important, is this compressor workable?

    Resort's " New Normal " Rule - No AIR 2 or diving your long hose

    I think it is a great idea. Can you list some of the problems this idea will cause, and back it up with some evidence? If this is the new norm, some or most of us need to be retrained. New divers will quickly get into the new practice. More important it will be quicker and safer to new divers...

    Current top drysuits for rec diving

    Thanks, @stuartv. I can easily increase my budget. Since it is my first drysuit and I am newish diver it is difficult the sate what I am really after. I then found it sensible to keep the budget low. Also, talk on the home front that the wife wants to take up diving after 20 years. So total cost...

    Current top drysuits for rec diving

    Thanks that have been my impression too. The seaskin looks got. Seen others with it. I have to say I am a fan of US-made products. With shipping and other taxes, it quickly gets out of my budget for drysuits. Been looking at GUI Coronado. I think that is their starter drysuit. I like it because...

    Current top drysuits for rec diving

    Interesting debate. As a new diver, I have picked up lots of advice. I am in the process of finding my first drysuit. As a new recreation diver, I like to purchase high-quality stuff within a reasonable budget. Saying that, I like stuff that lasts. Reading this discussion gave me a good insight...

    Has anyone seen or used the new Scubapro Hydros Pro BCD

    @stuartv You are right Hydros is a donut! I suggested X-tex just to stay with Scubapro.

    Has anyone seen or used the new Scubapro Hydros Pro BCD

    That means ditching the Scubapro Hydros Pro altogether. SP X-Tek with hardness and wing of your own choice is a better alternative every time.

    tank size and pressure

    I have not been able to try a 10x300 tank, so difficult to say how it will impact my trim.

    tank size and pressure

    Interesting discussion. I am currently renting tanks, 12L steel, 232 BAR. I have done the math, and think my first owned tank will be 10l 300 BAR, long tank. Reading the comments is not making it easier to choose. + It holds more gas than a 12x232. For about the same weight. + Might able to...

    BP/W pockets, again!

    Both Scubapro and Apeks, possible others got dive shorts with pockets. Expensive if you are just after pockets, but a good alternative. Apeks Tech Shorts

    Left handed?

    @Griffo, Yes I am relatively new to diving. Not new to live. My questions were related to left-handed divers. If you are not left-handed, you will sadly not understand the problem left-handed people are facing. Simple things are 99.9 % of all scissors are made for right-handed people. Have you...

    Scuba Gauge Talk

    Just like that! I have not seen them in Europe. Are they good?

    Scuba Gauge Talk

    I am looking for a pressure gauge that is directly connected to the first stage (no hose). It could be fitted directly on top of the first stage. No need to access when diving - I just want a small gauge I can access before I dive. When diving I am using my transmitter. If the transmitter or...

    sailing and diving

    Stow diving equipment is one thing. How are people diving from sailboats? - Get an air compressor or get more tanks? I have set the limit on two tanks each and possibly a pony for what I will keep onboard. Filling the tanks is not too bad from my yearly berth. We plan to go sailing long...

    Left handed?

    @John C. Ratliff Thanks. Several modern regulators can easily be configured for left handed. My instructor recommended Apeks XTX50, that can be converted within seconds. Apeks XTX50 Regulator Set I am still trying out different regulators trying to find what I like. I do like the SP A700...
