    How deep are you willing to go?

    Depends. This past Saturday I went to 125ft. I was wearing double 80s with over half a fill. For added safety I carried a 40cuft pony. So I did the dive with approx 125cuft. 50% more than a AL80.

    Rec EXP wing suitable for singles and doubles?

    I dive double 80s currently and the DR Rec wing works well. I dont have as much experience as some of the other divers so take it for what it is worth.

    hose lengths

    For example my hose lengths are primary-7ft, secondary- 22inch, inflator-22inch, and SPG- 24inch. I am getting ready to try a 24inch hose for my secondary. You will need to decide what lengths work best for you. I have spent some time getting my gear configured but once you got it dialed in...

    Wetsuit thickness question...

    I dont have the Elastoprene suit but I have a Pinnacle 5/4mm Fusion with the Merino lining. I have been warm in water in the 5/4mm while others were warm in 7mm. I have since switched to a drysuit for colder water.

    Power inflator technique (on a short corrugated hose)

    I just recently switched to Transpac setup with shorter inflator hose. I grab my inflator with palm facing me. Thumb on inflator button...index finger on deflator button. Works well for me. Just try different ways til you find one that is comfortable for you. BTW I like the shorter hose...

    Any downsides or upsides of OW qual in a quarry?

    Dive Rite Transpac VS Metal Backplate

    I had a chance last week to dive doubles in my Transpac....all I got to say is WOW!! The setup was comfortable. Walking to the water in double 80s was easier than a single 100 in my other BCD. Now on the Transpac is my choice for whatever I plan to dive. The stabilizing plates are a must and...
