    Hi all fellow DIR divers,

    In light of many pieces of research published on the disadvantages of deeper stops, what gradient factors are you guys using when you dive outside of courses. I know gue uses a 20/85, what do you guys choose?

    I use high 85, and I change my GF low to get the first stop at 21, where i usually do the gas switch
