i have found that 99% of the DIR stuff lives up to its publicity when underwater. The basic physical configuration has proven extremely ergonomic (for me personally Of course) and some of the practices such as slower ascent rates, Pyle stops, remaining in a horizontal swimming position and using 'trox have made my diving much more pleasurable by eliminating the squeezes, reverse blocks fatigue the next morning etc. i still luv my split fins, and buddy diving is additional stress (hoping that i'm not boring my buddy to death by sitting motionless, trying to get a frame-filling macro shot of a blue banded goby for 45 minutes) and then loafing for another 15 at 15 feet in the kelp, hoping to see yellowtail or 'cuda....a lot of my dives would seem boring to others, or ridiculous sprints in search of dinner.
as far as that "abusive training", i could use some of that myself, just to know if i could handle a "real emergency".
