I have two Buddy lifting bags that are the sealed type. I use for getting the shot up after diving a wreck. I have a 25Kg and a 65Kg version. They both suffer from a problem where they are almost impossible to inflate due to the small passage being compressed. Air goes into a small bit at the bottom and not up the tube. The only way to get round the problem is to insert arm into the bottom of the lifting bag and poke fingers up the tube. Once open the bag will receive air ok. This is a fairly dangerous procedure. Has anyone else had this problem. I was thinking of spraying WD40 into the bag/tube area.

I am thinking of trying another make of lifting bag.

Its got to be the sealed type because the force from the reverse action of the RIB causes none sealed bags to fill with water.
