Im here from DEEP SOUTH DIVERS YT channel... saw him diving the ultima without seals.. how does he seal the suit side where the rings are mounted? would like to dive a similar setup! Oh and is the system compatible with the showa 282 temres glove?
Best regards and stay healthy,
Great to see you here from our YouTube channel.
Here's the video where I create "sealless" Ultima rings:
To clarify, indeed Zef is right ... The seal is still technically there and needed for the system to seal properly... It's just trimmed all the way back. You'll see what I mean in the video.
I love diving the system "sealless," but it requires a certain amount of faith in your gloves, which people diving latex and butyl rubber gloves do not have. :-D
Personally, I'm diving the very tough (ANSI cut rating 5) SHOWA 3416s at work. They are TOUGH and don't leak, even when I abuse them doing chainsaw cuts and boat bottom cleanings. For sport diving, the SHOWA 720 is a thinner, better, more dexterous and tactile glove with an ANSI cut rating of 2. Both of these gloves are tough enough to trust to do "sealless."
Diving "sealless" is great... I love it, personally... But I get why people feel better about using a seal. It's a judgement call, really.
