    Going live with DIAD V tomorrow. Looking forward to it. Anybody else out there have a chance to use DIAD V.
    From what I see it looks like it will have a lot of new features. I especially like the numbers and letters both on it so I don't have to toggle.

    I will give a report tomorrow

    Please do!! Does it bang your leg when you hook it on the belt clip? Is it lighter? I could shoot that toggle button!!!

    We go live next week, and I can't wait. As small as it is I wonder if it will stand up to the same level of abuse that the current ones do

    Tell me if it does. I can't tell you how often I dropped that stupid Diad.

    I got some bad news for you. The new diad 5 does not have anything for the belt clip to clip into. I got to play around with one a couple days ago (without turning it on) and that was the first thing I noticed. You might have to start using the belt pouch. I hate the pouch!

    The pouch/feedbag is not that bad once you get use to it. I just had a bad problem with the DIAD 4 clip it just didn't work for me.I kept dropping my DIAD on the floor trying to get it to hook up. I finally gave up and went with the feed bag.

    Always leave the diad in Alpha and when I need a number I hold down the toggle with left thumb while I'm keying the number with right thumb and then release it. Back to Alpha.
