Greenforce F2 Umbilical Torch

In general I like greenforce products, I was once the proud owner of an 'Anniversary Special' a super bright torch with a hugh output that unfortunately 'died' on a regular basis which can be quite disconcerting when in the bowels of a wrreck in Chuuk.

Another review that only impacts rebreather dives I'm afraid!

As your experience on 'the box grows you learn that the initial mantra of 'if there is a problem bail out and abort' isn't necessarily true in all cases, for sure in many circumstances with a non-flooded loop it is better to fly manually or use your system in SCR mode if only to minimise the gas you carry.

Shearwater Predator Dive Computer

When, or if, you progress to rebreather diving the training and diving you will notice big changes. During initial training you are taught to abort the dive if your unit squeaks, then as your skills and experience grow you learn how to manually fly the unit and build in extra redundancy. This computer gives that extra redundancy.
