    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>

    Didn't you just lose a bet about talking diving.......

    Seriously - if people *really* want the scoop on DIR - talk to a GUE instructor. The internet is great for discussing part of it but its not the place to learn it.

    Since I am a 'stroke' - I can't do it justice. I mean - my gear is not all black, I dive with quick releases, I don't use a crotch strap, My light is only 10 watt non-focusable, my backup lights aren't 'approved', I don't use jets most of the time *and* I carry IANTD cards. I might die in the parking lot because of this and you want my opinion on DIR!!!!

    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.

    Well, my SMG is orange and yellow. Does that mean I'm going to die?

    Oh, my 3/2 is blue and black, me wing is blue but I did put a big "H" on it so I guess I'm safe...

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)
