    Thanks for explaining your kit choices :y:
    Can't say I agree with much of it, but at least I now understand the rationale behind your thoughts.

    What did I demand?? How can I demand anything from anyone? Especially strangers on an internet forum.

    I beg your pardon? What the fuck does that mean?


    And you don't ever criticise??

    Besides, I didn't. I just posed a couple of questions that anyone who cares about making a hobby that's second...

    Cost effective? Is your life not worth a grand Wibs? (which seems like a lot for a BOV btw, the AP unit is only 675). It's not really required of course, but only right up until the point when it...

    In a (probably vain) attempt to avoid this thread going the way of so many others and becoming a slag-along-a-yesteryear, I wonder if any of those who gave an answer other than 'yes' to the poll...

    Very true. A good point (and one that was made in the presentation). Even with a tether though how many would have survived if the loop had fallen out? Quite a few less I would suggest.

    As do I (and there's nothing 'so called' about them).
    I have no idea what yours are though, but would still extend the courtesy of listening to what you had to say before making any judgements.

    I...

    Ouch! I think that's a bit harsh. Not being up to your standard on technical writing shouldn't diminish his presentation on CCR safety. We all have our strengths and weaknesses after all. Maybe take...

    Ultimately I think it will take the efforts of the instructor cadre to bring about the change. I believe at least one training agency (RAID?) are now going to promote the use and this would be a...

    And most folk would just say "he drowned while diving" rather than "he didn't know his po2" ;-)

    I tried the AP one and thought it was crap tbh. It’s cheap for a reason. Basically just a rubber band with a big o-ring at each end. In my opinion this strap is simply to pay lip service to the 14143...

    Vast majority of CCR deaths are actually from drowning. Not knowing your po2 might mean a breathing gas issue and LoC, but its very often drowning that is the end result. Paul presented it as chain...

    As shown during the presentation some people have self-recovered after blackout when using an MRS. And this misses the point anyway. You can't be recovered if you've already drowned.

    Id urge every CCR diver to watch the presentation when BSAC put it up (it was recorded so I assume will appear on the website at some point). It might just change your mind (and save your life)....
