    Fittings for Shrimp on Evo+

    Any recommendations or pros and cons for the two options for attaching a shrimp to my Evolution+? Can either get the adapters that attach to the end of my existing loop connections https://www.golemgear.com/p-530-bayo...-threaded.aspx or remove them and use golem attachments only https://www.golemgear.com/p-542-bayo...p-clamped.aspx

    I'm leaning towards the clamped version to minimize weight on the unit and my jaw. As well as clutter and connections and orings/failure points. I am open to ideas or suggestions from those wh have done it.

    I use the adaptors that screw on the end.. Makes the bov quite wide across but saves faff and does the job... Haven't really noticed any jaw fatigue

    I have used the clamp fittings, bit of pain to put on (lots of soapy water and swearing), but worth it when done. Note though that the standard Inspo fittings for the HUD and HUS don't fit well on the Shrimp clamps.

    I have the threaded ones. They made it a little wide for my liking. Ended up selling the shrimp with my Hammer Meg but I have the threaded adaptes if you are interested I will make you a deal on them.

    also using the wider ones. i.e. the the threaded ones. Minus- yes, they are wider, but i can live with it. Maybe haven't experienced a better option :). Pluses- you can easier swap bov to dsv, for example when something happens to bov on a trip.. And you can use the regular hud holder.

    oh, and i havent experienced the clamped one to be too heavy, even when not using a gag strap, which i usually do..
