    Halcyon stainless steel backplate and one piece harness. The webbing was replaced in September and is cut to fit 5'10", 42" chest 32" waist. I can supply new webbing at cost if required. The LP retaining o-ring was also replaced at the same time.

    Halcyon 40lb Elvolve twinset wing. Dump has been upgraded to a DSS one.

    I can post further pictures if required.

    £320. P&P is extra.

    OT for a sale - happy to move to another thread... What's the DSS dump and is it better than the original Halcyon dump? And are they readily available?

    (And to endorse the item: that's *the* wing & BP for twinset diving)

    The kidney dump, the one @timmyg has is made by Deep Sea Supply (https://www.deepseasupply.com/product/basic-opv-kit/1287) and it's got a fatter string that should be easier to find with thick gloves on. I have one on my single and prefer it to the standard one (In fact I might swap mine over when I get home as finding the skinny string in my thick gloves is a pain).

    Not sure where you can buy them from now, I'm sure I got mine from somewhere in the UK.

    Nice, thanks.

    I use a cobra knot on my dump string which was given to me by Darren which makes it a bit thicker. Can still be a sod to find with thick winter gloves which attenuate your feeling.

    You can just drill the hole a little larger in the original dump and install a thicker piece of cord.

    Another reason people swapped to this dump a few years ago was because some of the Halcyon springs were rusting (like a lot of the 'stainless' they use).

    Hi TG,
    If you still have that when you get back to Camberley, I could pop over with some cash.
    And have a chat about TDI intro.
    John.

    Cheers guys. Been fairly silent recently. Not surprisingly a one day old baby keeps you busy.

    BTW the Halcyon wing dump and SMB dumps look similar. Are they interchangeable?

    Probably, some DSMB dumps are different (my Halcyon 6’ is a bit different) but most should be the same
