    Classic KISS

    Post Re: Video- Cave Explorer, Brett Hemphill and his modified classic kiss

    Very nice.
    I have 1 or 3 Questions re Brett's setup.
    Hope i'm not here.

    1: Are they steel bailout tanks? (rounded ends)

    Removing CK from his back underwater how is this done?
    2: What Harness is he using or can we adapt our own.

    3: What wing is he using again is it specific the setup.

    4: Can we go to see pictures of this setup somewhere so i can get a better idea of how it put together.

    Thanks Guys & Gals

    Curt!

    Very nice video! I have been wondering about how to mount and connect at BOV on my Meg, and watching Brett explaining what and why he does things helped me out a lot.

    Personally I am very exited about the fact that you are the new CEO of RBW. Good things has happened since you took over the site. WORLD CLASS!

    Looking forward to seeing the new videos.

    Re: Video- Cave Explorer, Brett Hemphill and his modified classic kiss

    From what I have seen, looks like the CK is clipped on over a standard OC cave diving side mount setup. The BC would be the Armadillo, Curt and Brett created it.

    At the CCR Cave Summit Brett was displaying with something like a HP100 or LP85. Last time I saw him in the water he was diving LP120's. So two steel sidemounts. At the Summit it also looked like he had one Ali stage.

    Cheers!!

    KISS CLASSIC

    Re: Video- Cave Explorer, Brett Hemphill and his modified classic kiss

    The whole thing is to difficult to discribe on a forum

    So, Brett, Jakub from Golem Gear and I are currently working on another video that helps discribe how we set up our CCR sidemount harness, sidemount cylinders, regs, etc.

    I have another shoot this weekend in north florida for some inwater cave shots and detailed discriptions.

    Hope to have the video completed in a week or so.

    Hi,

    I like the idea of having a back-up of the O2.

    Can this be done on a Meg also?

    Cheers

    Yes, All you would need to do is plum the second O2 into the Manual oxygen Add on the counterlung

    One bailout dil would need to be QC'd into the ADV and the other pluged into the manual Dil add.

    Simple to do

    Thanks Curt

    I've looked at a lot of pictures of gears for the last month or so and it is the first time I see this.

    Taking two O2s and two stages of diluents... I'm curious to see what my Instructor will say about it during my Mod-1 ;)

    I would bet, if your taking a course, they will make you change it back to the original. Liability?

    Re: Video- Cave Explorer, Brett Hemphill and his modified classic kiss

    An idea to keep for later... I will ask him though

    Another question: Brett recommends in the video to have a spare BOV. Does he take one with him in the water and would be able to change it during the dive if necessary? Or does it stay in the bag?

    Cheers
