With a S100, SS BP and 7mm wetsuit in New England I am basically perfectly weighted (maybe add 2lbs max). I think I needed 10lbs with an AL in Florida if I remember correctly. I'm also 6'3 very athletic build so apparently I use air a little more air than other divers so any extra air I can get, I'll take (this is just how it was explained to me). This is why I have been looking for a S100, do you think AL is still a better option?Or, how pristine the tanks are. I have a few HP 80s (PST) and HP 100s (PST) that are showroom new looking, inside and out. Some need hydro and others have fresh hydros. I would ask stupid high prices for them. They are too good to give away.
Bob knows his stuff. He is also very common sense oriented. He has seen it all before. A new AL80 is hard to beat. A new AL100 is much more expensive and somewhat available. For your first tank, a new AL tank is probably the best choice.
