love using regular mouthpieces (Comfo-Bite), and very enjoyable on the surface to close the valve.

You can just use it as it is, but by adjusting the Argonaut you can truly kick the performance up a few notches. There is nothing magical to the adjustment, most divers should be able to do it.
It is the same basic adjustments to lower the cracking effort down below 1 inWC (close to 0.7 inWC) and then the most important is to increase the venturi flow.
Increasing the venturi flow effect is easy. You just need to block the two side bleed holes on the second stage. It is really that simple.
Today I have been adjusting several regulators and I have been taking a lot of pictures. I will post this pictures when I have a chance.
The write up is easy, but I want to have some good and accurate pictures to go with it. Coming up with good picture that accurately show what I want is a bit time consuming. I am working on two regulators for friends this weekend, so I hope to have good picture by the end of the weekend.refrat wrote: Hey Luis
The DSV is awesome and another milestone in double hose design, but when are you going to share this wisdom with us? I am particularly interested in the recommended way to block the two side bleed holes on the second stage.
I will post a picture her in a moment.refrat wrote:That's great! I looked at the side ports on my Kraken LP and they are very close to the LP clamps- one looks like the port is partly occluded by a clamp already? I will post a picture showing the ports blocked.
Also there is a little lateral movement (rotation) in the LP body- is this normal? A little motion is normal, but you can reduce it by pushing the D shaped washer hard against the second stage. And then tighten the screw.
What I would really like to know is how best to actually obstruct the side ports without any potential of compromising the functioning of the second stage? I just put some plastic washers under the D shaped washer so that the flat side of the "D" blocks the bleed air.
A longer screw on an LP clamp and a thicker washer to obstruct the port? I just stack a couple of thin plastic washers under the "D".
Maybe a small self tapping screw straight into the open port? NO, don't do that.
Looking forward to hearing?
