    I primary use Ratio Decompression, which in the context of this thread would be DecoPlanner.

    I've got to edit this because upon re-reading it wasn't clear-

    Decoplanner below 180. Ratio deco for 180' and up.

    V-planner. I've done cursory looks at other methods and followed some of the threads on Ratio Deco and GF models, but haven't actually committed to learning or using any of them.

    I checked V-Planner because you asked about software. I probably should have checked other because I use Ratio Deco for most dives. I am surprised you did not mention some other popular programs on your list.

    I have used others.

    I have used several over the years. They all appear similar in capabilities. Some are easier to work with, etc. Now I use freeplaner as it works on my mac.

    Let's face it, it's all just magic anyway. No one knows what they are doing and its just a craps shoot anyway.

    Safe Diving

    Ratio Deco (so yeah, I guess, DecoPlanner...though I haven't fired it up in quite some time).

    These days, if I want to check "out there" profiles, I'll use VP (DP doesn't run on my Mac).
