Both!! One for primary and one for alternate. That will be a kick ass combination everyone in your state will envy you.

:p

Either one will work just fine. What you need to ask yourself is what is important: price, cosmetic, dive environment, future goals. For example, tech divers lean toward the G260 because some are taught to remove the front cover to clear debris. In cold water, below 40°F, the G260 works very well, although I've know the S620Ti does just fine too. For some, one second stage looks more appealing than the other. Flip a coin if you can't decide.

I like the S620ti, smaller and lighter than the G260. A little over 4 oz lighter. I have several S600. about 3 oz lighter.

Of course, now they have the G260 Carbon BT, don't know what it weighs.

I have both and either one is fine...the 620 is slightly lighter....I use the 260 as my primary and necklace the 620ti...I could easily do it the other way....I also alternate the 420 as the primary with the 260...

Go with whichever you get the best deal on, the 260 is usually cheaper and offers some advantages like reversible inlet, if they were the same cost it wold be tough to decide but ultimately I consider the G260 the best in-line type reg SP offers. The 620 is no slouch.

Im leaning toward the 260 but I've read for some it feels heavy. Others say underwater it doesn't matter.

The 620 weighs 7 oz, in use it doesn’t matter much
