Got the Magnus, time to sell the Sierra

Post by pensacoladiver » Sat Jan 28, 2012 4:59 pm

I figured I would support the local economy and recently bought the SS Magnus. That being said, I am looking to sell my Dive X Sierra.

Comes with all pictured, battery, spares kit, and charger. The battery gives me between 6- 70 minutes of trigger time in 1st gear.

Scooter shows usual marks from normal use, but runs like a champ, has never been flooded and ALWAYS fresh water rinsed after use.

$1800 and I will cover the shipping to get it to you... provided you are in the states.

*drool*.....
What combination of dungeness crab, razor clams and scallops would you take in trade instead?

BTW-- I can vouch for this scooter. I think it pulled me around yonder FL waters for a few days.

Has it been freshly beach tumbled? :stir:

Curious to hear how you like the Magnus! Howard (burntchef) owns one up here. He loves his.

Yes, she was beach tumbled, but those of you who won/ride one know they can take a whole lot more beating than that.

Would need about $1800 worth of seafood to make me trade. :-)

The Magnus is all it is cracked up to be. I was a little concerned at first as they do not sell a bottom timer and compass mount, but a little modification to the one I have and it's mounted right back on the handle.

I was also apprehansive about the motorcycle style trigger mechanism. Wasn't sure I'd like it, but after diving it for 2 weeks now, can't say I would want to switch to anything else. It fits right into the groove of the index finger and thumb perfectly.

Having never ridden a Dive X Cuda Fury, I can't compare, but there is no comparision between this and a NiMh battery. Of course the cost is not comparable either, lol.

Anchored wreck dives that used to trouble me do so no longer. Hop over, shift her into third gear, cover the backup reg to prevent free flow andf boogie right down the line.

I am pretty sure you can charge the Cuda with the battery in the unit. the Magnus is designed all you have to do is pop the cover and charge away. A BIG PLUS over the NIMH batteries that have to be removed.

Trim adjustment is also EASY. The battery is mounted on rods. So after the weighting is correct, simply move the battery forward or backward on the threaded rod to trim.

I also love the fact that the cover is made of Derlin, or whatever. It can get a scratch and still stay black instead of turning metal colored.

They are a bit cheaper than the Dive X Super Cuda... but you do not get a travel case or spares kit with it. not sure if that equals it out in the end or not.

3-4 tank days that used to require me to bring both batteries... no longer. I can do them all and still have power left over at the end of the day.

Chad grab these for your bailout bottles to keep them from free flowing.

You have to pull the batt on the Cuba to charge it. Power cable is on the motor side charge cable on the other.

Maybe it's just me, but I would always fight with the battery tangs to either get the battery in or out. I always kept the sealing O ring lubricated also.

CaptnJack, BDub, ledevore, and Raptor, will all be happy to know I plan on Pay Palling PensacolaDiver this evening, and picking this scooter up for this Mug. (I would say the same goes for April, and Joe, but I haven't seen them in a while, even on the board, maybe there is something I dont' know)!

No longer will I be trying to Con you into letting me try out your significant others scooters or hitching rides behind you.

Probably another PFT waiver. I've heard you can get one of those once you're over 70 and a CWO.

I can hold my own. And muscle has nothing to do with it. It's all technique, which I am apparently lacking from time to time. :pirate:

Haha. FYI, 24 years worth of PFT's and have not had a waiver yet. Let me find some wood to knock on. Still got 29 years left before I hit 70, but I'll have to look into that waiver for the CWO's.

I suppose I could tell a sea story about how a PNW buddy of mine came down here and sucked through a HP130 like it was an AL19... this was while being towed by the scooter!!! :smt064

Who would have thought. I have had it for sale on Scooba Bored and other websites for quite a while. Chris asks me the other day "Why don't you post it on NWDC"?

2 days later, its almost sold. I guess there is something to be said for selling a local product in the local area.

Never did take a marketing class in school.

The DSS Lithium battery for the Cuda (Fury) only has one connector so you don't have to pull the battery to charge. It's quite nice.
