I have a few Q. First reg. regulator. Somehow I like Mares very much due to quality of breathing. My question is about the side channel or metal pipe in second stage, does it prevent from free flow a little bit? I am just to buy lots of goods for me and my wife and fighting between Mares Fusion or new Atlas …. or Aqualung Legend MBS. Second Q I would like to help my wife with under water position and think about Aqualung Axiom/Soul BCD. What do u think about them? Thank you.
I would like to #AskMark if he could explain the “durability” difference between standard and premium trilaminate drysuits. Specifically plastic zippers vs metal, sewn and taped vs sewn and glued seams, and “more durable” materials. Conventional wisdom is that metal, glued, and premium fabrics will last “longer” and be “more durable” but no one seems to be able to quantify these extremely subjective terms. Certainly not enough to justify what frequently is a 50% price difference. Thanks, you are a wealth of info and excited to see what you do at your new home!
what are your thoughts on twinsets being mounted valves down?
hello Mark can you explain why I have found that the inflator hose connection is different on some BCDs and some are not interchangeable. Thanks Joe
Mark, would you buy a Perdix AI or the new Perdix 2? I know with the software upgrade you can add more transmitters to the Perdix AI. Thoughts?
can you please explain wave “swell period” as it relates to shore diving. I dive a lot in Laguna Beach, CA
