55 packs sound like alot, (and it might be)
but rather compare volumes and not packs.
Depending on the way you pack, it is different for everyone.
Some people do small quick packs,
and other do slow big packs.
So 2 people can pack the same volume, but one does it in 15 packs, and the other in 50.

hi. cliff, you said fainting is caused by an increase? in bp. it happens to me ofted when i try stretch while packed. took some measurements while packed to 80% max(and without even stretching) and my bp was about 70/50. very low. can anyone give comparable figures. this a bit of a worry for me cause i dont like blacking out before i even start my dive. seems though that upon releasing packed air my bp jumps up to 150 atleast. experimenting with doing a small pack before the big one- the first to get my bp up whereupon i can pack to max without b/o. anyone tried this? dont know if it's a very good breathup, being pretty interupted and all. cheers
