    I dive 2 AI computers and an analog watch.

    AI Luna and a hose integrated computer. (Picked up the hose computer for same price as an analog SPG/Depth console.)

    Diving in the Philippines, I often join groups from different backgrounds, so the ability to change between Bar and PSI is nice. I know it's not required, but allows me to adjust to whichever unit the group is using. I work just fine in either unit.

    71 more responses over the last month, results have not changed significantly (see How do you dive?). Half of divers responding, dive an AI computer. Nearly 40% dive a redundant computer, a third dive a gas backup, nearly a quarter dive both computer and gas backup.

    2 non ai computers for all technical dives. I cut tables for all deep diving and use the tables as primary while monitoring my computers for comparison, I don’t want to piss them off but I haven’t.

    After years and years and years and years and years and after not having done it due
    to geography for about fifteen, I think I am coming to realise that pulling and gliding
    in the temperate zone of Southern Australia with my spg as computer, using as much
    gas as possible, for what seems an unlimited time, is what I really really love doing

    this interspersed with some springs and ponds is where a solitudinal heaven exists







    Thanks for reminding me Pullnglide
