    I find it sad they use as much helium in one dive as I need over a number of weeks and yet they only get short bottom times. This open circuit diving game surely has no future!

    Plenty of wide holes here. Not very smooth though!

    Personally whilst I think checking the switch good practice I find it simpler to put lean-left rich-right.

    I digress, thanks for the explanation.

    Matt.
    Which skippers insist every diver put up their own bag? Everyone I've dived with has said one bag per buddy pair/team. Or put your own up if diving solo.
