If you’re doing this specifically for DIR reasons, such as taking a Fundies class (?), it’s probably best to read the book, or ask in a DIR forum so you can start with the right gear. Equipment choices are all part of a well thought out system, one that may not be obvious at first glance. Many...
I don't know what to say.
I don't come to SB often these days (really ever, anymore). For some reason I thought I might stop in to the forums tonight, on the anniversary of the Edmund Fitzgerald, and saw a reference to this.
Reading through some of the early posts, where...
SCUBAPRO - MK25 EVO/S600
Looks like Scubapro has made changes to the MK25 first stage, supposed to have something called XTIS (Extended Thermal Insulating System): "with mechanism fully insulated from the environment, improves cold water/ freezing resistance without compromising piston...
Following that line of thinking (if one is good, two have to be better!), why not four? :rofl3:
This is just more of the same, marketing to novice divers who don't know what they want (and what they don't).
It's been a few years since I was the only BP/W diver on a trip, whether liveaboard or dive resort. I don't see them being as rare as some of you guys are making them out to be. There were four on my last Aggressor trip, and half a dozen at CCV this Spring.
Assuming the OOA diver has their wits about them, which can be a pretty big "if".
That's what the modified S-drill is designed to sort out, at the beginning of every dive. Hopefully the OP would learn that as part of how to route the long hose.
I disagree, I don't think it's an invalid test at all.
There are a lot of recreational divers who do 4+ Nitrox dives per day for a week on a liveaboard, etc. and those are exactly the people who would be "penalized" by the Suunto model for repetitive dives. If anything, I'd like to see what...
I switched from the 7' long hose to a 5' when I ditched the can light, mostly because it was easier to not have to tuck the extra two feet without a battery canister to hold the excess.
Before that for quite a while I used a 40" hose w/ 90° elbow. For recreational dives I could probably go...
Yeah, it's a shame you can't switch the mode to record in HD or downres the 4K video to HD... ;)
I can remember guys saying > 1 MP digital cameras were overkill since the 1024x768 monitors of the day couldn't display the full image...
Her AI computer wouldn't work without being connected to the HP hose?
So people can leave their reg set in a dive locker but take their dive computer back to their room (to download dives, keep their expensive dive computer from walking away, etc.)
Necrothread alert! :rofl3:
The 360° swivels just aren't of a robust design, IMO. I don't think that's changed much over time.
If you dive with a 40" hose routed under your right arm, one of the 90° elbows what I'd recommend. If you are diving the long hose and want some strain relief as...
