Title: Manifolds
Post by: JD on June 22, 2011, 06:37:08 PM
I may have purchased my very first manifold. Must admit, I am a little excited. Maybe the Gooey boys will talk to me now at dive sites...Doubt it though. They all know I am a $troke.

Actually Harvs I am still non compliant. The manifold is for a set of 55's I have but dont really use. I figure if I manifold them, I can use them for dives such as Rapid bay, dredge etc. I really like twin 55's, but figure a manifold cant hurt. I still have the boots on the tanks too!

It can be a bit of a waste if you are only doing 1 dive. It is a bit more work to set up and clean than a OC set and sometimes not worth the hassle. It also makes me appreciate the YBOD more when I get back on it!
When I was getting hours up I used it for everything, now I am a bit more choosy!

Yeah - I stuffed up. I busted a boot in my tank, and went and bought a new one from the dive shop. Should have just rummaged around a GUE diver's rubbish bin and saved me the cash.   :-\
