FOR SALE: Voit Trieste

Fri Sep 04, 2020 9:12 am

Noticing the recent interest on this forum about the Voit Trieste, I have one that I would like to sell. It has all the new silicone hoses, mouthpiece, valves, etc. I was tuned by the master of Voit from Ohio. I never did get a chance to dive it so why not pass it along to someone who might. The chrome is fair as you can see in the images. Label is nice. I am asking $300 shipped to you, open for reasonable offers also.

That is a steal. If nobody buys it in a week I will.

Congrats Surflung.... Looks like we're gonna have to do a Voit Trieste theme dive at the Fall Colors trip.

If you want it to breathe really well I would suggest FX cut cans for it. They are available here http://www.thescubamuseum.com/Online%20 ... p/68312907

AyAYAYeee... I didn't even think of that. That's yet another fun project to do.

I have corresponded with Greg about this regulator and he explained all of the internal replacements and tune-ups he did. He estimates this particular regulator to be among the top three best breathers of all of the Triestes he's fixed up over the years... And it still has the original diaphragm. It arrived yesterday and I mounted it on my Twin 38s to see how well it breathes. It seems not much different than my other rebuilt regulators. Didn't seem hard to breathe. I'm going to dive it in the lake tonight after work... Probably down to 25 ft or so... That should tell me how well it works in the water.

- I dove the Trieste late yesterday afternoon with my buddy Rich (50,001 Questions). Long story short, it breathes like a DAAM. In other words it breathes just fine. We dove for 57 minutes at depths from 16-30 feet. I had it mounted on a set of Twin 38s which positioned it right against my back and high on the chest... About perfect position. I'm very happy with this Trieste!
- The dive was really fun, too. We went further down the shore than usual and encountered some new sights. I was looking for some anchors I'd seen down there a few years ago. But instead, we found some big boulders and TWO fishing rods. Visibility was 20 feet... Maybe more but we were in the fading light of the evening. Water temp was nice, too. We wore 3mm suits and hoods but no gloves nor booties. Thermocline was right at 30 feet... Icy cold. Nothing to see there.
- Interesting phenomenon... We've had pretty good water clarity all Summer and as a result, the milfoil has been growing deeper... We used to get past it at about 12 ft deep. Now it is creeping all the way out to the 20 foot depths. I've heard fisherman say that gives more habitat to the fishes. I'm not so sure it will be good for the diving though.
- Another observation: The Zebra Mussels have been killed off quite a bit but not completely out in front of our place. There are sloughed off shells around all of the big rocks they were attached to in previous years. But when we got into the big boulders down the shore, they were THICK with Zebra Mussels... Like 5-6inches thick.
- Finally, Thanks Allan for selling me this very nice Trieste. And Thanks Greg for getting it all working so well. - Eben
