DAAM turned into non-mag-like

Sat Dec 03, 2016 3:45 pm

Couldn't keep this for me ... As my 13 years old daughter found out that DH diving was much more fun than classic single hose and eventually decided to declare ownership on my DAAM, I had no other way but find myself a new one...

This time, I decided to rebuild a DAAM into a non-mag-like DH and without being pretentious, I'm very proud of the result!!!

This one has almost received the full stack - Cyclone, HPR, silicone diaphragm, silicone hoses, mouthpiece and duckbill (...) - just waiting for the new DBE' batch from Bryan, to get it 100%.

Instead of painting it like the original, I had it re-chromed to matt black hoping it will last longer.

This is how I got the DAAM...
And this is the result...

I'll be diving it next Tuesday - it's bank holidays in Spain - I'm sure it's gonna be a great breather!!
