The HECS technology came on our radar about 12 months ago and we've watched as its progressed. After 6 or more of our former guests all started wearing and benefiting from the HECS technology, we thought it was high time we reached out and got Warren on the show. We also reached out to the Noob Spearo Community on Facebook and got a hefty number of questions and so we ask them all in this chat. Standout for me in this episode were some of the other lesser known benefits of the suit such as greater warmth factor and durability. Have a listen for yourself and let us know your thoughts in the comment at noobspearo.com/hecs

Spearfishing world reception to HECs: Customer adoption curve. DISCUSSION
Spearos are infamous for not being early adopters to technology. Reelguns, roller heads, carbon fiber fins copped a flogging when they arrived on the scene and even the single barbed flopper tip. For spearfishing, innovation adoption has a funny track record. It’s a fact I wrote about a year ago for Adreno, here is the article about spearfishing innovation.
Looking at the about product adoption curve and thinking about where the HECS technology is positioned, where would you say you are?
Which story or situation has been your proudest achievement with the HECS suit?
Peter McDonald Says “It seems HECS has a strong focus on underwater photography/research potential, however equipment such as cameras emit their own electrical signals that sharks and other animals sense (and often investigate), have you considered attempting camera/equipment covers to prevent any further interference created by these devices? And if not feel free to send me a L/4 Bluewater 3mm for the idea..."
Kabir Parker "Is there a new stealth screen coming out in the future. What’s happening in the future for HECS?"
Jon Stevens "David J Hochman and Nick Fazah had a discussion yesterday at the seminar about how HECS covers the electrical signals but not the heart rate and how fish read your heart rate. Perhaps a discussion on the podcast on what is more effective “covering electrical signals” or “keeping a low heart rate” and how fish read both."
