diverrex said:I've never had to use my alternate for myself or anyone else but was diving with a buddy when his primary literally broke mid dive so he switched to his alternate. What was he supposed to do come use my alternate because he wasn't allowed to use his? Yeah you're right that was a silly statement.
I said I've never had to use my alternate which is true but half way through a recent dive I realized I had bit through one side of my mouthpiece but I continued the dive knowing I could hold it in my mouth just gripping the remaining good side and also knew I had my alternate if need be. On my safety stop I did switch for a while to my alternate to inspect my primary then switched back.
