the scary part of it is I'm actually about to buy a Tres Presidente so have been doing a bunch of in depth digging on the RB-80/RBK. Can't justify spending 2.5x for the RBK over the 3P, but it's a sexy little unitDon’t act like you got my joke the first time. I know the truth!
And to me, this is the crux of the problem in this silly debate. This is a very dangerous thought to propagate. What it implies, but doesn't state, is that two of these half-sized sorb canisters could therefore give you 7 hours of diving. Of course, that is very unlikely in anything but the warmest of shallow water dives (low gas density/max efficiency) of low physical effort.Reasoning: according to the scrubber monitor I always get well over 3h30 out of the top scrubber.
I would not replace my scrubber after the first dive, I would absolutely use the same sorb for dive #2.Why 50mins?
I've a couple of 40 min BT 60+m dives on sequential days where only one of the two scrubbers was replaced. Runtime 2h for one and 2h15 for the other.
Obviously increasing the dive by another 10 mins results in 20+ mins of additional deco (playing that through MultiDeco shows it to be another 40 mins runtime.
So, reality was one of two scrubbers replaced for each dive (total lime is 1.3kg x2)
Theoretical 3h dive you're talking about is... one of two scrubbers replaced for each dive. Reasoning: according to the scrubber monitor I always get well over 3h30 out of the top scrubber.
May I posit that you would replace all your scrubber after the first dive and all your scrubber after the second? Or is yours going to last a total of 6 hours?
It's not about banging your chest, and it's not about saving money either.When did bragging how many dives you can do on a scrubber become the new chest thumping? Who gives a sh-t? Sorb is cheap, dump the sh-t after a dive or save it if it's got life. No need to argue and fuss over it and use it as a measure of the length of your d-ck. Feels like when you're on an OW boat and a dude in an al80 and a dude in a steel 130 compare how much gas they came back with, but are too stupid to realize they're diving two different volumes to start.
Using RMS to be able to strecth your sorb is not a selling point for the Revo. It's superceded by the fact that sadly you're diving a Revo.
Having seen it live, it's horrible mammoth. Unit was with double 12l. Probably weighted like 60 kg. JJ ccr like small compared to it.the scary part of it is I'm actually about to buy a Tres Presidente so have been doing a bunch of in depth digging on the RB-80/RBK.
