What size cath are you using for your p-valve? Only give the size that does not leak....

Votes are anonymous.

You don't have the popular sizes listed in the brand that most of my buddies use. They have even numbers like 32, 36mm etc. I wish they had a 34mm but they don't so I go small. I've tried the 36mm and it works but I think someday it might fail so that's why I go smaller.

I forgot to mention, rochester is the brand that's most popular with drysuit divers because it doesn't come loose no matter how much you abuse it. They're sized 25,29,32,36, and 41mm's and the Wideband is what you want.

Yeah, it is scattered across manufacturers and the poll option only gives 10 options, so I tried to hit the spectrum with odd numbers. It is also biased by brand. I look at Freedom silicone because I work in healthcare and could therefor be susceptible to a latex allergy (A real latex reaction on a dive you need the pee valve for is a BAD thing)... The Silicone does not stretch like latex, so you gotta scale down a little on size. I wish they had silicone 33s around here. They have 35s, but that barely does not work in silicone, but probably would in latex.

So if I use the 41mm widebands, I should vote 39mm? :D

As long as it does not approach the stomach churning level of the "Diva Cup" thread, we should be OK.... :shivers:

What about those of us who have to order custom sizes because the stock sizes are all too small?
