I always get a bit confused by :twisted:... can't tell whether I'm being scolded!? :roll:

Where it works really well, is if I plan a dive to 50m for 20mins but for whatever reason it gets cut short to 10mins.... I don't have to do my 50m/20min deco schedule.

I recut the deco schedule based on the actual dive, write it on my slate prior to ascent and whilst I'm using the computer to control the schedule, I've still got my (new) backup tables in case the computer dies.

If something has gone a bit Pete Tong on the dive, and I need to get out of the water as soon a I can then it's definitely a useful feature. I'm not totally convinced by depth averaging - would have to look into it a lot more than I have done so to date to feel comfortable using the approach.

Thats a whole 'nother thread I think. We wouldn't want the thread assassins weighing in here and totally derailing the thread so perhaps we will drop it eh? :lol:

Those stupid Scuzzball Octi Holders... the metal split ring pulls out of the soft plastic in 2 seconds as soon as you get in the weed looking for crays. Must have gone through 3 or 4 different octi holders before I found one that was half decent. Finally sorted the problem out by getting an octi integrated into the inflator hose.

I have used octi inflators for 20+ years.
and once you get used to them they are just awesome to use.

Just remember to practice using it from time to time.

I cant think of anything more relaxing, than being in the downunder, breathing some nice clean fresh filtered 21% nitrox.

500mm of bungie @ $2 makes for the best octi holder. Wear it around your neck. Its out of the way and you always know where it is.
