Suunto D3

Thread Status: Hello , There was no answer in this thread for more than 60 days.
It can take a long time to get an up-to-date response or contact with relevant users.
Can somebody post a direct link, that site's use of Java for its menus makes it impossible for me to navigate it.

i personally use a Stinger and at the champs i had both the Stinger and the D3 on all of my dives.

What was very interesting was to see the diffirence in depth between the two computers seeing that i was sntaching the tag with the D3 arm and grabbing the shotline with the Stinger arm.

Also have a look at the two profiles, one from the D3 and the same dive from the Stinger

This one was to 40m with the D3

The same dive with the Stinger on my rope grabbing arm:

What i forgot to share was on how fantastic it is with the 1 second sampling rate of the D3.I the slightest thing happens down there, you will be able to see it in your dive profile.

On the second day i also went to 40m but on my way down some of the support divers were to close to the rope and i got slighty surprised by two huge bubbles on their way up next to the rope, note the slight change at 20m, also on my way up i saw the first support freediver and judge waiting for me at 10m, you can clearly see on the graph at 14m i actually for a split second lost my rythm.

Small things like these can make a huge diffirence in one's performance.
