    Regulators

    They seem to not be the glamour reg, but I have more of pre-XT Dive Rite regs than I do fingers & thumbs. Parts are easy to get so far. Service is simple and I can be as fussy as I want to be. As a...

    It's phenomenal in a cave. If I'm in the back, I'll run it full blast and light it up for everyone. I do have to turn it down when I have someone behind me. It'll easily drown out some other lights.

    Elon Musk is being a baby that didnt get his way. Lost alot of respect for him in his bs.

    Burst disc's

    That's really not the same thing. It's similar but not the same. It's still a 5250 burst disc.

    The only burst disc I ever have blow was a 4000 psi disc on an LP95 that had about 3800 in it. ...

    There was no need to characterize what Musk did a “PR stunt”; obviously the same goes for calling the rescue diver “pedo guy.” Unless Musk is versed in cave diving, he wouldn’t understand the nature...

    Burst disc's

    plus 0 to minus 10% is still 90% of test pressure, the 3hl's are 90% minus 10%.

    They are spec'd at 5250, but I ran a couple of them up one day for shits and giggles and they both blew around 4700...
