    Recreational Pony Bottles, completely unnecessary? Why or why not?

    My vote, unnecessary. A diver should be able to calculate what’s on their back (or side) and set aside a minimum gas (reserve) for an emergency in their dive plan. The added weight, drag, and configuration would hinder a recreational diver more in an emergency than it would help. All dive...

    Want to Buy AL-40 Pony Cylinder/Setup

    I’m looking for an AL-40 cylinder for a pony setup. If someone also has an environmentally-sealed reg set and/or rigging they’d like to part with, I’d be even more grateful. I’m in coastal GA but can travel to SC or North FL/Cave Country to pick up or meet in the middle. Thanks for the help...

    Advanced Beginner Gear Grab - Helpful for others too?

    Alrighty then. I've managed to get irritated enough in about 15 dives to want my own gear (more or less) immediately. Like most of us, I have pockets that you can see the bottom of and want to choose wisely. I would consider myself an "advanced beginner" or "beginning advanced" due to...

    Thoughts? Pony bottle to integrated octo / inflator?

    I was pondering a 13 or 19cuft pony setup. Anyone just attach it to an integrated inflator / octo setup to avoid additional hoses? Obviously the downside is that I'd be using my octo air when I'm adjusting boyancy, but my purpose for it is otherwise as a bailout tank only not deco tank and I'm...

    “Snorkel” with spare air?

    Anyone “snorkeled” with spare air? Pros? Cons? Also, does anyone dive with just a small pony bottle? I want something that I can do at the beach without having to have my equipment.
