belt fell off !!!
« on: July 20, 2015, 08:43:34 AM »
Went diving in Casper Landing on the 4th of July and my belt came loose on my 3rd dive in the middle of the bay 20#s on a red nylon strap with a hook clip on it :(

Good. Now go call Matt at Red Triangle Spearfishing and order a proper rubber belt. No more of that nylon junk.

I second this, I was using a nylon for a while and talked to Matt, he strongly encouraged me to move to rubber. It really was a great change, it allows for better breathing and fits a lot lower on the hips. Listen to Rob, he know what he talking about.

I agree get a rubber belt and also a crotch strap It will help improve your breath holds by allowing your diaphragm to expand more. Matt at Red Triangle has belts and crotch straps

I have a crotch strap that I was using with my nylon, however now that I have a rubber I can push it low and tight enough that if I forget to bring it I don't seem to have any issues. I seem to need it when I am diving deeper, if you are under 40 ft I don't think its an issue.
