    Oceanic Data Mask

    Ok, my LDS just got these in and I've tried one on. I think they're really cool and all but seem very heavy compared to other masks I've tried. Has anyone tried one in the water yet to see just how much of a difference they make?

    mine just got here Saturday night so I have not had time to make a real dive with it yet.

    Only some pool work / snorkle time on it.

    I may head over to Boyton beach on the 13th and do a Boat dive if i can get nitrowill to blow off
    his classes that day
    Or may try to hook up with TJ from Dayo scuba depending on what he's got going on.

    Soon as I get a chance to dive with this mask will post a review on it from a noob's view.

    My instructor demo'd one during my OW class. His only negative comments were loss of downward visibility and the last line of data being slightly out of his field of view.

    This mask looks really neat, I would like to hear some more about it once people use it.

    Way too expensive to even be practical at this point unless you dive for a living.

    Really in the scheme of things... Suunto has an $1800 computer... just because it has a digital compass in it?! I'd much rather spend less and have the data in my mask without the compass. But probably true - expensive toys are for folks with a lot of spare spending cash - probably not people who dive for a living, but people who do surgery for a living, or for folks who have a spare $10 scubatoys gift certificate kicking around!

    That's true. That $10 does make me feel a little bit better about spending some cash with you guys, lol .

    I guess that is one mask you would hate to lose.
    If you get confused listen to the music play.
    To much of everything is just enough.
