    Bmcl

    Hi,
    Yes I know that the Pelagian is a nice machine and that the "under arm" CL are in no way restrictive. But still, I would like to ask if anyone has try to use BMCL similar to something like the Manta CL of the Meg.
    Jale.

    decoweenie posted once that he planned to use dave thomas bmcl's on a pelegian.

    dont know if that ever happened tho.

    i think the meg and the pelegian use different size loop hoses.

    Jale: not sure why anyone would want to move the CLs from underarm to backmounted. Seems like that would defeat one of the most attractive secondary benefits of the unit; horizontal trim out of the box.

    You meant Dave Thompson.

    Since the day I got Dave's BMCL set, I have dived every unit I had with them since.

    Dave's BMCL was the first design available and (IMHO) still the best.

    I just tryied the BMCL "manta" ("on a Meg") but i was very possitively surprized that the trim was nice frome the start and nice experienced WOB.. But thats maybee just me..

    I really wish for some BMCLs for my Pelagian.

    While they are not really in the way, they are a minor annoyance when dressing, and they take up some "real estate" complicating clipping and unclipping of stages slightly.

    I still love my unit though, and the needle-valve is a real "keeper", as with instant cell validation.

    Re: Bmcl

    Not sure why one would want to change this unique feature of the unit which gives great trim. I have a fiend who currently building a unit with similar design features other than the CLs which will be back mounted...we will be testing this unit at the end of January I will be able to make direct comparisons of the trim.

    Personally I prefer the underarm CLs as I like swimming in a horizontal position even when Im taking photos...also much better position for a long deco hang did around 3 hours deco last week on one dive very comfy...

    Have tried back mounted counter lungs, sometimes people just prefer the devil they know.
