Custom Built Scubapro R190 Twin Hose

Mon May 25, 2015 8:00 pm

I came across this on the Historical Diving Society Australia-Pacific facebook page, a guy was talking about building his own shallow water helmet and posted some pictures of it. He then went on to talk about his other project which was to convert a Scubapro R190 into a twin hose. I have no idea if these links would work to show you all, but I thought that the forum members here would find this interesting.

Aqua Lung did almost the same thing (about 10 years ago). They called it a Mistral (the new Mistral).

This one at least would have a better venturi flow than the new Mistral.

A+ for creativity. Thanks for sharing.
Doing it right should include some common sense, not just blindly following specs and instructions. .Gary D, AWAP on SB
