    The mouthpiece is an odd size on the Cyklon's, but they are incredible regs. One thing that took me a little bit to get used to was the purge on them - it's almost scary. That beast will move some...

    Poseidon Cyklon. Mine is almost as old as I am, and is still an absolute tank. Even rebuilt it once about 5 or 6 years ago.

    Peed in my drysuit once. Didn't forget it wasn't a wetsuit, just couldn't make it back to the boat and get the suit off in time. Only time in my adult sober life I've ever pissed myself.

    Larry, is that the Crimson Trace overgrip? I was toying with the idea of one of those for my G-26. What do you think of it? Does it hold zero well? Effect the grip much?

    Did the bandage contacts dry out on you that first or second night? Would you really call that 'discomfort'? I called it - well, lots of words that would get me banned here.

    My Cyklon 300 (the 'showerhead') is my favorite regulator. Sturdy, reliable design. I think a lot of the opposition to them are their age, and some folks have parts availability issues. They also...

    Why no love for Poseidon? My Cyklon 300 is my favorite reg, especially in the colder bay scallop season. Great for messing about under boats, as well.

    They make bombproof gear. I have a stainless plate and wing from them, that I added the G-2 harness to. This harness uses steel buckles that are kind of hard to explain - you'd have to see a picture...

    I've done the 'unbuckle the rig and try to step away from it without detaching the drysuit' trick. More than once.

    I agree. I have an old Poseidon Cyklon 300, almost as old as me, that I would NEVER get rid of. Since I've owned it, it's been in to a Poseidon dealer twice - first tiem for a torn diaphragm, second...

    Das Boot was great, but the best two have to be the Peter Benchley films - goes without saying that Jaws is #1, but I think The Deep comes up #2.

    Not that I'd recommend it, but shutting down their tank valve and signaling OOG yourself is always good for a bugeyed expression and a laugh. (I'm VERY comfortable with my normal dive buddies)
