    I found your RX8 example interesting though. Isnt that kind of 'blind faith' the very thing you're criticising eCCR divers for? Would those electronics get you out of a diesel spill?......or perhaps its the case that whatever make of car you drive, there can be unexpected things that cant be fixed by equipment and instead rely on the mindset/operation practises of the operator. Im sure you see the parallels with ccr....

    Having said that, Im a hypocrit. I have a belief.... that we will continue to discover new issues with rebreather diving (whether its the physiology, the equipment, or the practises), which require us to adapt/adjust what we do. An open mind is probably the best tool we have.

    No you haven't haha

    I don't know why Mark takes it all so personally. We are, after all, allowed to have different opinions and form them in any way we like. I have no doubt we'd have a great deal of fun diving together as long as you don't wanna talk about your trim or the deco afterwards and just wanna talk about the wreck or beer or girls/boys then I bet we'd laugh more than argue in real life!

    Usually. For <40m I just use an old Aladin Pro, for mix diving I use tables generally. Sometimes I'm lazy and will use the HH like if I'm diving in Dorry where you end up all over the place. But for a wreck where it's just down, along and up then I use tables.

    Pretty much. If it',s just bimbly stuff then it doesn't matter. Longer deco then I go tables.

    People spend daft money on computers, the Aladin was 30 quid on ebay. The battery wires may not survive the next battery change so might replace it next year.
