    strap extraction - wire cutters vs spring bar pics

    well, i love my 6105 but the original type plastic feeling strap is really quite awful. impossible to remove due to using 20mm diving spring bars. yep wrong tool for the job, so I had to use big wire cutters in the end. The band, however, was salvageable.

    You're a brave man. I'd could never attempt doing such a thing to a diver, new or vintage.

    yep, there was some cold sweat happening lol. they aren't just fat spring bars but over length as well to avoid popping a pin! i can easily hand wriggle/pop a 19mm dive spring bar in the 6105 with the sticky isofrane in place, but never with a 20mm dive spring bar in place. against that is the need for the wire cutters :(
