    New Wing BCD HELP

    Greetings everyone! This is my first thread on ScubaBoard. I am an OWSI with PADI and SSI. I have been using the same BCD for my entire career thus far.

    Apaks XTX or XL4 plus? What would you buy?

    Looking to get some new regs. Working in diving so use them every day. I really like the XL4 plus But really is it worth it? Should I just stop messing and buy a XTX set? I know the XL4 need different tools to service. But is it much more messing? Any thoughts?

    Ottawa New Diver Testing New Gear

    Hi, How does one go about testing new gear, like checking weights/buoyancy... I would not want to do it during a group dive so I don't delay group.
