    Hi 688. I know this is an old post but, I would like to know if your belt problem with the P2 got solved after the last return to DiveXtras and what they did to fix it. I just purchased a P1 back in March 2019 and the belt broke twice already, it is on its way to them at this moment. I really like my P1 but Im a little worried and frustrated at the same time. Hopefully yours got fixed and mine will be too.
    Regards.

    I know this is an old post but I would like to know if your belt problem ever got fixed, hopefully they did. Asking because I purchased a P1 in March 2019 and Im having the same problem. 2 broken belts in 5 months, the P1 its already on its way to DiveXtras. I had been doing some search and so far You are the only person I have found to report a problem with the P1 plus me, so that make me think that it is not a common problem and hopefully they will be able to fix it. The communication with them had been great so far, cant complaint about that, but Im a little worried and frustrated too. I really like that little beast, I will appreciate any information you can provide me on the status of your P2. Thanks.

    Yes! They fixed it. I think they redesigned the drive system and gave me one of the new ones. It has worked perfectly since then. Good luck.

    Those are really good news, glad to hear that! I really love my P1, there is nothing that I don't like about it.
    I really appreciate you getting back to me. Be safe down there and thanks!

    Count me as an extremely happy P1 owner since last fall as well, Darn thing is the bomb for shore dives with long swims or doing wrecks in our strong currents here.

    [QUOTE =“ diver4life#1,帖子:8722196,會員:119937”]我知道這是一個舊帖子,但是我想知道您的皮帶問題是否已經解決,希望他們解決了。詢問是因為我在2019年3月購買了P1,而我也遇到了同樣的問題。在5個月內2條斷裂的皮帶,P1已進入DiveXtras。我一直在進行搜索,到目前為止,您是我發現唯一報告P1加我有問題的人,因此讓我認為這不是一個普遍的問題,希望他們能夠解決。到目前為止,與他們的溝通非常好,對此不能抱怨,但是林先生也有些擔心和沮喪。我真的很喜歡那隻小野獸,感謝您能為我提供有關P2狀態的任何信息。謝謝。[/ QUOTE]
    Hey, I have two piranhas. It ’s much easier to change the belts of piranhas produced after 2017. Basically, I used electronic programming software to change the starting gear to a gear with 15% power. The belt is very durable. . It only costs $ 10 to buy a belt in my country.
