    Chipmunk cheeks

    Hi Group

    When swimming inverted or on your back will Boris and MK15 users experience chipmunk cheeks too, or is it isolated to KISS users?

    Nick,

    Are you sure you've got the overpressure set right..?

    If memory serves me correct it should be 13 to 15 mBar...

    Never had this as a problem on my old Azi... given that the lungs are behind you... you should only get this on your back... then it's bad though... :)

    Maybe the OPV too tight, at least for that position?
    On cmf units you're blowing into a full bag half the time ...

    Re: Chipmunk cheeks

    Nick I dive a modified AZI, and dont have that exaggerated feeling as you are describing. In fact compared to dolpins and rays which I have dived I find the Azi breathes best. I dont know why people say it is a lame breater ???
    I find that the unit is very well built especially the cannister and no cheap plastics like some breathers around.
    Ok ok I know the Azi is a bit cumbersome, but in CCR it does a good job.

    I've only dived the 'AZI' in SCR, the only other unit i have dived, (thus far) is the 'Buddy Inspiration', and between the two there is a world of difference, and i don't meen fundamentilly, just the WOB, it's...................5 times better than the 'AZZI', it even breathes 'BETTER' when your upside-down!!
