    Stupid Question Alert

    @Mike1967 Usually when descending the ears pressurize and when ascending the ears might crackle when pressure is relieved, mine do but, YMMV.

    IP Question - ScubaPro MK25 / MK17

    There's a lot of questions to be asked here. Are you testing/adjusting these yourself? What kind of tools or diagnostic equipment are you using? Do you have the adjustment/repair procedures for these particular stages?

    Dry suit questions

    Round are easier to use if you have a integrated seal system but a pullover glove would work with both an oval or round system.

    Duck dive descent?

    Don't really care for an aggressive descent, I like it nice an easy. :)

    Dry suit questions

    I second the DRIS option. They put silicone seals in my pinnacle and stand behind their work.

    DIY wing tutorial - very picture heavy.

    I have used HH-66 on some drysuit repairs and it does work.

    Zeagle Express Tech for sidemount?

    I tried converting a BP/W to a SM and failed miserably. I eventually bought a Hollis SMS75 and kept the BP/W as a BM. If you're serious enough about SM, get a proper rig if taking this on yourself, so you can concentrate on learning SM. It will be a hell of a lot easier on you.

    Safety margin of backplate/ wing if drysuit floods or other problems ?

    I cringe every time someone mentions using the suit for buoyancy. As a dry suit diver, you should be able to manage the dry suit and the wing.

    How dangerous is this ?

    I use to use a mallet too and have moved to a small tighten with wrench now as well.

    How dangerous is this ?

    Ahhh, the dry bleed. Can't tell you how many people come up to me saying my first stage is leaking after a dive.

    Italian woman dead on Mozambique reef

    Given the extreme current and the possibly older age of the diver, maybe a medical condition?

    Slippery Slope - Doing my own ScubaPro Maintenance

    I do my own repair on aqualung and dive rite first stage and second stage adjustment with a manual that works great in the details in how to perform the techniques in servicing.

    I would be apprehensive about filling this, hyrdo date, vis date?

    directing valves inside (to the chest)?

    @Caveeagle Cool! I don't see much SM in the midwest quarries I frequent, there are a few, but with what you said I feel better about approaching cave training with the setup I have. :)

    DUI vs Aqualung Fusion Drysuits

    Don't know about pantyhose but I do have to wiggle a bit to get things feelin' right. :)

    Drysuit Repairs

    I have had my drysuit repaired through DRIS and can't say enough good things about the job, thanks DRIS!

    directing valves inside (to the chest)?

    Why so hostile? I was just saying to those who are concerned about 1st stages down should feel ok with this in restriction less environments.
