Are Sent-to-hells really as bad as some folks make them out to be?
What are your experiences, both as users and buddies?
The most honest opinion I ever got from a sentinel owner was that he absolutely loves his unit but that he would under no circumstance recommend it to anyone else.
That pretty much said all I needed to know and ruled one off of the list.
If my post doesnt have a typo, then I have probably been hacked!
If you have to ask then you know the answer already!
I've not had one, and won't have one, at any price. I'd rather have an iCCR.
If I was going ccr again I would get a VMS sentinel no question
Apparently becoming a grandad
If anybody wants an older Sentinel in need of some attention I have one here.
It has lots of extras, spares and bolt-ons but I confess a few small bits missing (like the pocket).
It did what it did quite well but it didn't suit me.
If somebody is interested I'll write it up so there is a full detailed list of what is there.
Helium, because I'm worth it.
Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.
One of the guys on my mod1 was learning on one. At times it drew blood and other times much cursing. Not one for the impatient and heavy handed.

My issues with the Sentinel:
- Too big/heavy but needs a lot of lead to sink & trims badly
- Scrubber doesn't eject as it should as it gets used more (most instructors trade theirs in before this occurs)
- Base becomes very difficult to remove (needs a lump hammer), again due to wear (top OK as not removed often)
- Problems with HP/depth sensors, causing missed dives or diving without HP sensors
- Flooding issues & sofnolime mouth wash
- Felt the single 4.5L counterlung too small for me
- Feels that the Inspo breaths better
I had the origional version, so didn't use the CO2 sensor or the IR transmitters.
