    Does anyone have any experience with this wing? "Looks" like an oxycheq clone with a relatively friendly price. Thank you.

    Thanks Dustin, from DGX I expected it would be of good quality. I'll start saving my pennies.

    Want a back up with just in case. With shipping the way it is a catastrophic wing failure could have me out of the water for weeks.

    I chatted with one of their very friendly customer service reps because I was also thinking of buying this wing, everything that I've read on this board indicates that this is a solid wing at an amazing price.
    However, she told me that they are not expecting it to be back in stock anywhere within 4 weeks, and don't have an ETA either.

    Poo. That's ok though, it'll likely take me some months to come up with money anyway. I'll chat to Joyce about it. Thank you.

    Simon,

    Maybe you want to give this one a look. I am currently using this with my freedom plate from Eric.

    Store | Vintage Double Hose

    Excellent quality and slim profile. Not as long as the DGX wing. When it is deflated, people can't see the wing behind my torso.

    Just a thought - Maybe you've checked it out already.

    Hope you are doing well.

    Hi Simon.
    I use that wing and it's amazing.

    The inflator is standard, and the bladder is pretty heavy duty and the cover is extra heavy duty.

    The hose is a bit longer but it's not a problem.

    The profile is narrow and it doesn't taco and I have never had any problems with it.

    Thanks for the replies, appreciated.

    At 199 it's hard to beat. I dive an Oxy Mach 30 extreme but have been thinking about buying a back up for ages, as previously mentioned worried regarding shipping issues what would happen if my wing self destructed....
