    So testing out an OTS Guardian and I have one small issue.

    I cant *quite* get consistent equalization. The block is just a tad too far forward and down, even with the largest blocks included installed.

    Is there any mod or aftermarket solution for this?

    Some washers to push the wire closer to your nose and longer screws to fasten?

    That may have done it, but I ended up switching to the ocean reef. The rubber pegs feel better to me.

    I'm getting an equalizing spacer sent to me from OTS. Has spacer blocks and longer screws to push the wire form closer to your face.

    I may end up not needing it as I've found that I can reliably equalize in a FFM by doing a half-swallow. Probably install it anyhow just in case.

    By the way, this mask is the balls. Just sayin.

    Hi Sphyon,

    Apologies for the late response! I have been out of the office the past couple weeks.

    We offer longer equalizing wires free of charge. This will help bring the block closer to your nose. Do you have a good address that I can send one to?

    Please email me at : anelson@otscomm.com
