    DIR Give it a shot

    I see that DIR diving still hasn't caught on from the few posts on this part of the forum. That is too bad, it really is a high speed low drag way to dive. No bulky jackets, outstanding regulator hose setup, and reduced weightbelt with a stainless steel backplate.

    If you haven't tried it give it a shot. Halcyon, Dive Rite, Hollis, Oxycheq all make great backplate harness setups. You could even go OMS...if you had to.

    Yep - it even shows a bit of ignorance of what DIR is actually.

    <hint - its has little to do with gear and everything to do with philosophy for diving>

    From your profile.

    Gear Info:
    DIR setup Halcyon backplate, Oceanic Delta 3 regs, Scubapro twin jet fins, Aeris Atmos 2 being traded for an Oceanic Veo 3.0 computer, JBL 38sp NW speargun

    Talking about DIR with split fins is hilarious.

    Now, now, guys. Remember...we're the *friendly* scuba forum. Leave mockery to that *other* one.

    //that said, I do find it humorous that: DIR equals BP/W. I dive a BP/W and am not DIR.

    But miss a chance to joke about DIR without creating a religious war in the process - I don't know that I can miss that oppertunity.......

    Ahh yes, dive snobbery, i had forgotten so many people have their head up their behinds. I use split fins because besides the old scubapro jet fins, there are no fins that fit my feet as they are slightly deformed.

    I see divers haven't changed. Oh well, thanks for the welcomes and to the rest of you, get over it, there is plenty of diving out there for everyone, I have loads of experience and I am not dead.

    I have been out of the in loop for a few years, but I will get back into it.
