thanks, fuels the anticipation! I'm hoping the ice develops and stays as the weather has been problematic. We have had issues for the last few years.swimjim wrote:For starters here's a video for you.... https://vimeo.com/124034771 .
From a shop that sells split fins, warm water regs, and jacket BCs, I've always been "chastised" in my gear selections (technical and vintage/modern DH and vintage single hose) as the other divers begin to ask me about my gear and it isn't in their wheelhouse... If I bring sound equipment, and dive in safe practices, that is what is important. Yes, the protocol for ice must be obeyed. I could go full modern with my tech rig and doubles, but I'm really wanting to put the Kraken on for this. Not to sound crass, but when I called them so sign up, one of the first comments was "you should wear your dry suit"..... no kidding, really? I never considered it.....swimjim wrote: You will show up for class with what your instructors say you should have.
you have reinforced my stance, thanks!swimjim wrote: A double hose regulator is a perfect choice for under the ice. Especially the Kraken. If your guidelines call for it, you will have an octo. In the real world, that is nonsense. Using an octo under the ice puts that much more strain on the first stage. Not a good idea. Sling a pony with a single hoser you trust. That is what you will donate to your buddy in need. If you have maintained your double hose be it a Kraken, Phoenix, Mistral or a DivAir, it will not let you down. Of course, if you dive a single stage reg you will need a separate pony to run your drysuit.
Ice is no match for the Kraken! Yarrrrrrgh!Bryan wrote:I know it's class but I'd like to have more pictures and a writeup about Argonaut Kraken regulators conquering the ice !!
