    If you plan on getting into deco diving go with the nerd, you’ll have redundant depth and decompression info. Also nice to set nerd to compass hot dropping. My wrist computer had a button fail and I borrowed another unit which doesnt have a nerd and i miss it. Really nice to have moving between stops when your hands and arms are busy with a reel since you have depth and some po2 info in your eye.

    I think you could make $200k per month teaching people how to make $100k per month and go scuba diving. A straw pole of my buddies would indicate the two are mutually exclusive.

    Got it, we will be chest loading spearguns so the CM won't work for us, seems perfect for travel though!

    Yeah, but for so many years now and still maintaining a rEvo profile picture sounds pathological ;(

    Absolutely. Depending individual setup of course, but the N is quite a good step forward.
