    GUE, Halcyon and Brownie Third Lung Demo Day
    • Ever wonder what Global Underwater Explorer’s (GUE) is about?
    • Ever want to check out or try a Halcyon back plate, wing, regulator setup, doubles or single set up, DPV, Primary or Scout light?
    • Ever wanted to try a Brownie’s Third Lung Hookah? Did you know they can now be solely battery powered?
    • Tired of circling around and bobbing up and down or not going anywhere?
    • Wish you had better dive skills to photograph your subject, be a better team mate to your buddy or just be able to have more fun underwater?
    If you answered yes to any of this, what do you have to lose by attending this free event? We will even feed you. Come out listen, ask questions, and try things out. Take away what you like; leave behind what you do not.

    Hello everyone,
    Just a reminder that this weekend is the demo day at Blue Heron Bridge on Singer Island, Florida. It is certain to be a lot of fun with some nice equipment to try and some give aways. Starts at 10 am. If you want to demo gear, please make sure to bring a c card, drivers' license and your personal items (exposure suit, mask, booties, etc.) and a tank would be nice though we will have some for use and the new battery operated Brownie's Third Lung "Tooka" (hooka) system to try as well.
    See you then,
    Errol Kalayci

    Sounds like a great day planned. Are the new Halcyon DPV's going to make an appearance?

    They're a blast for short range, but after about 15 minutes my hand was not liking it. I'd take one over a Gavin any day if I was ocean diving often....I would take a Gavin over the H scoot for cave diving any day, too.

    Just my $0.02.

    I have used the Halcyon scooters for almost 6 hours run time in a day, yes I had to switch scooters, but did not find it to be hard on the hand. Wonder if the one you used had a balance issue? I had 3 Gavins before I switched to Halcyons. Gavins are great for the long range cave diving and I hope to get back to that again soon. About to add another Halycon 16 to my collection and will probably be adding magnum gavin scooters back to the collection in the near future again, yikes!

    Errol, GUE, Halcyon and Brownies hosted an extremely well organized event today including many South Florida diving luminaries. Next time the event is held I would strongly recommend attending. :thumb:

    when you hit the trigger it seems to want to rotate too much to the left instead of riding up around 12-1 o'clock. it's not as fast as our standard gavins and my friend's new t16 only burntested for 60 minutes. i thought they were supposed to do closer to 120 like the 35AH gavins?

    a fun scooter to ride but had a few drawbacks for sure. especially given the price. the best part about them is carrying them to and from the water
