    Default Diverite O2ptima BMCLs

    I got my TDI certification on my Optima a year ago. I purchased my unit from AddHelium and it came with both the front mounted counter lungs and the gen1 back mounted counterlungs. While going thru training I used the front mount, but I'm interested in trying the back mount. The general setup is pretty straight forward with the Omni-swivel MAVs and counterlungs, but I can't find any specific information on setup, adjustment and use. Here is my question: Does anyone have any specific experience with the Optima gen1 BMCL? How is yours set up? Any special techniques or tweeks (dil flush, ADV setup & adjustment, weighting) that might be helpful?

    Thanks in advance!

    Does no one dive Optimas, or does no one use the older style BMCLs on them?

    I'm trying to remain content with the SMCLs for now. I am thinking of either adding a shrimp BOV or nerd2.. but that's not much help to you.

    Given a choice between the nerd2 of the GG shrimp, I'd go with the shrimp. I have one and really love it, a very fine breather with smooth one handed operation.
