DIR configuration vs BCD. This short article is to promote a solution to the wing + plate among young experience [read, asking, completing own equipment divers.]
After two dives, which was first done in twinset (previously done 17 divers in the kit wing + plate + 15 l cylinder) say - buying BCD and dive in it completely misses the point. [And what has one to another, single disc in the system as much as possible is possible-admin].
If we compare the price and ease of use are almost all pros are on the side of the wing + plate set. In our Polish reality quite important selection criterion is the price of the equipment. Cheaper and more future-oriented solution is the wing + motherboard. Forward-looking, because it has a modular design, which means that we can virtually change the configuration by adding or subtracting a set of different types of accessories (wing board, harness, crotch strap, buckles, pockets, d-rings, sheath knives, pocket trimming / ballast, stripes , eraser, mounting, and probably a few more trinkets). For those who like to tinker and combine opens a vast field of possibilities, because virtually buoyance after the sack, or the rest of the wing and set up, we can do the same. The same system can be used for both single-cylinder and a set of two butlowego. The disc may be with an integrated adapter for a single bottle or the adapter can be attached to a dedicated board for a set of two Cylinder. Buoyancy bag itself also suitable for use in a variety of configurations (corresponding structure). A problem at the beginning may be the fear of diving with integrated fixed ballast. However, there is a simple solution to this problem, fixed ballast pockets on the hip belt harness. I met with the opinion that it is no easy solution, "because fly pockets" on the waist belt. The solution is turning down pocket to the edge of the disc (after all, there are a lot of free holes) and place them on the belt. I think that is more secure configuration [as been learned, yes-admin].
Some ballast can attach to the bottle (to facilitate balance) to remain placed in pockets in case of an emergency does not get rid of the burden, but rather the emergence of emergency has its advantages. The largest benefit to the wing for me it's easy to keep trim. [It just right, like the relief of the lumbar spine-admin] Properly balanced and adjusted the wing almost the same sets us in the correct horizontal position under water. When the "switched" to the BCD already during the first dive, "I enjoyed a bowl of" it can not be described, who tried to know what I write. I recommend hot wings are in the club can be configured for a single bottle. [Well, as the comment above-admin]
Weight of the equipment we have evenly distributed over the entire back through the disc is no problem of back pain after diving. The problem disappears unpleasant pressure on the chest while a significant filling BCD. All equipment is adapted to us, nothing years running, has a sense of unity with the hardware.After a while, I recommend to start diving in twinset. With my first dive was a little trouble balancing, ballast and adjusted his positioning was a little different that the two cylinders vs. one bottle is a significant advantage in favor of Twin. Stability, ease of maintenance and trim depth is unmatched. I know that I intend to swim only in this set.
