    That looks like a Titan first stage. If you look at the snap ring (NOT o-ring) you will see that it has a rounded edge on one side and a flat edge on the other. The rounded edge goes in toward the...

    Seaquest Balance was one of the early minimalist back inflate BC's and AFAIK is still being produced. It is an excellent BC. However, BC's do not hold their value very well, and $250 seems high. But,...

    I would stay away from Parkway regs. I am not at all opposed to buying used regs, but I stick to ones which are easily serviceable with readily available parts.

    My opinion: If you are not going to use it, return it. On the secondary market, it will never be worth what you paid.

    The Apeks Egress, which is balanced, is probably the best breathing of the pancake octos. That said, no pancake octo breaths as well as a good conventional octo. Since an octo is so seldom used in a...

    I have often marveled about the fact that many people have no problem trashing an old PC, laptop, or even the previous model iPhone, but will cling like grim death to an obsolete dive computer.

    singal,
    IMO, a shorty is a mistake for that area in winter. I suggest either a 3 mil or even a 5 mil superstretch. My g/f uses a 3 mil plus a 3 mil hooded vest in the Caymans in winter. A hooded...

    It is highly unlikely that anyone would use 100% oxygen in an octo-inflator. It is also highly unlikely that anyone who is using high percentage oxygen mixes would be using an octo-inflator.

    Almost every product in the Caymans must be imported. It is very difficult to dive there "on the cheap" as one can do, for example, in Bonaire, Cozumel, or Roatan.

    Zeagle makes a fine regs. They should be since they are heavily "influenced" by Apeks regs, which are some of the premier cold water regs. HOG and several other brands are also copied from Apeks....

    There is no substitute for trying it on a dive. If it turns out to be too short for underarm, just use it in a conventional manner for that dive. Probably won't be fatal.

    One reads all sorts of nonsense on the internet. If you are fastening a hose to the first stage, it should be tightened hand tight plus a smidge with a wrench. The idea is to have it tight...

    Stored flat, loosely coiled is fine. I do, however, suggest that you store it IN something such as a mesh bag, container, etc. to keep the creepy-crawlies out. Roaches have a sweet tooth for exhaust...

    Don't worry Bassplayer, you will be just fine. The first stage will work in any orientation, including sideways. If you prefer the diaphragm down, just change the hoses.

    An improperly adjusted integrated octo can freeflow just as easily as an improperly adjusted conventional octo. A dangling conventional octo is the fault of the diver, not the octo.
