    I think your second sentence said all that's needed to be said. Bungeeing a long hose is what was once the best idea someone could come up with to make a long-hose twinset kit look and act a bit like a traditional single cylinder setup. It's a compromise and works, sort of. But it's just simpler to hog loop the hose, even on a single cylinder setup.

    According to your dogma. Others have other dogma. I have a loop so don't really care.

    Don't really care if it's long or short but Cameron being choked appeals.

    A popular course for c50m diving with the option to offset N2 a little. I'm sure there is enough bullshit controversy about this course to get us to page 10 on the thread

    ah yes - ofcourse it is... having a brain-fart this morning!

    its a shame none of the proper Tech agencies do just a primary-donate/hog loop course really - would be useful for us BSAC divers just flirting with tech diving, using twinsets and accelerating deco but want to "offically" use the long hose... <shrugs>

    I think they'd be accused of being Padi if they did, creating a course for something so simple. I think it's covered in various Foundations/Fundamentals courses though, should you be tempted. Or you could get someone who knows how to do it properly to coach you?

    It was the case (assume still is) if you were a BSAC instructor you couldn't teach primary donate and so many many people who could have covered this in 10 minutes on a cold winter's night at a club meeting where there wasn't much else to do were stopped from doing so. I have always assumed many broke BSAC rules to show how to do it just as many solo dive or go in overhead environments of do not practice rule of thirds.

    Well until BSAC semi revoked the hog loop edict, I didnít train a single diver.
    Interesting to see the membership reportedly go up once the hog edict was revoked

    Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.

    I doubt that is the reason - most BSAC members have never heard of hog-looping or even long hoses come to that.

    Indeed.

    For most divers a long hose is something they use to wash their kit down. I used mine today and it worked a treat and stowing was a simple matter of winding it back onto the reel.
