Hi, i was looking for a full face mask, and i have find some interest in the Neptune Space G and the Ocean Reef Neptune Space Full Face Scuba Dive Mask with Hookah 2nd Stage.. What is the big different on those two? And who should i go for? this is my fist full face mask, but i wantthe mask to be good as well.. regards Morgan :)
I have a older ocean reef Neptune with scuba second stage can I get a hookah second stage reg or tune my existing reg for my mask
so I dont know if this is really a question more than a suggestion. but you may be able to point me in the right direction.. this is a hookah only mask so it cannot be used with anything else.. now what happens in an out of air emergency? I have to doff the mask move to backup and breathe out a pony bottle or other?? this is not the greatest, as it eliminates the benefits of a ffm if im just going to have to remove it if my surface air cuts off. any thoughts? thanks in advance
Basically you are correct. In an out of air emergency you are going to switch to a back-up system separate from the ffm. In this case, the assumption is that you are ending your dive anyway, so the more important thing is a supply of air that allows you to safely ascend to the surface.
I know the Ocean Reef in a hookah set up is not built for a scuba tank, my question is if it were exposed to the higher presser would it work? Im asking this because in the commercial world most have a bailout Value on our BC / Harness that allows us to switch from surface supplied to our bailout tank without removing our mask or helmet.
Does the Ocean Reef Full Face Mask allow enough space/room/ clearance, to wear prescription glasses?
Hello, ocean reef actually makes a frame that fits the mask. Here is the link below: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-124/028083/Ocean-Reef-Optical-Lense-Support.html
I am looking at the Ocean Reef in a hoohak set up but also dive scuba can I use one mask for both,, Ie. have two regulators and switch them out dependent on which air source I am diving at the time. or If attach a secondary air supply reg, how would i keep water from flowing in through a disconnected reg if i only wanted to dive with one of the air sources.
Neptune Space 50/60PSI - For Hookah Second Stage
These masks have the intermediate pressure of the regulator set up at 50/60 PSI allowing the use of it with an alternative
surface air supply (hookah). Performance of the Neptune Space 50/60 regulator depends on the stability of intermediate pressure provided by the surface
air line supply. The Neptune Space 50/60 PSI also includesa Limited Lifetime Warranty
