    Default Roll-offs in Sidemount? Have you ever?

    An interesting discussion about how common it is to have a roll off in sidemount came up in the Accident thread here: http://www.cavediver.net/forum/showt...-Grove-9-10-16

    Let's see how many people have had them, and in what valve/first stage configuration (we'll see if I can think of all the options, I bet not).


    NOTE that you can select multiple options to report your experience in multiple configurations

    You left out the ideal configuration. First stages up, knobs inward. FWIW, I have never had a roll-off using that configuration.

    i saw your post on the accident thread right after i finished writing this poll. If I've only missed one alternative configuration, I think I did good.

    Or, maybe the forum is just 90% backmount and they're here for the entertainment? :P

    No first stage in, knobs down?
    Am I the only one?

    Why is cave diving so internet based?

    You also left out the really basic question. Have you ever had any type of roll off? BM, SM, No Mount? I have broken more of those stupid hard plastic knobs off over the years than had roll offs.

    Only a couple hundred SM cave hours so far, but I've yet to see a dive where my valves begin roll in any SM configuration... New, but I am not in the habit of bashing my tanks along the cave walls though.

    Only 339 cave dives, 200+/- in BM and the rest in SM. No rolloffs yet in either configuration.
