    Wanted Oxycheq Mach V 18# Wing

    I am looking for a low-lift wing to pair with my new AL Freedom Plate for a tropical travel rig — my slight preference would be for a VDH wing due to the internal bungee, but the Oxy is a very close second place (except that I can't stomach the new price). I take barely any lead so the 18 pound...

    Wanted VDH Wing: 18 or 23 #

    Like everybody else, I am looking for a low-lift Vintage Double Hose Argonaut wing to pair with my AL Freedom Plate for a tropical travel rig.

    Scuba Gear protection

    I've posted a few question on here so far and I admit, most of the advise here has been very helpful. Figured I'd start a topic that may seem obvious or simple for most, but confusing for beginners like myself. Here are a few question that myself or I've heard students ask. Let me know your...

    Information about travel, finding dive shops, dive guides & buddies?

    How do I find buddies to dive with me if I am traveling alone? Do I contact local dive shops for guides or buddies? Do dive shops receive a performance rating for safety and customer satisfaction? I assume if a dive is poorly rated there would be some indication to warn divers? I have a...

I read, for many that a solution is always to check in the bc and just rent, but this is not an option. I...
