    I have no affiliation with Golemgear. Hot deals could have been used but I put it where people that are looking for this kinda stuff would see it. That's where all of the posts are placed that ask... "Where can I find a good deal on XXX?" They don't get burried in the Classifieds. :shakehead How many thousands of posts are there in the BCF directing people to where they can find a good deal.

    Oh well. I can't keep up with all the politics around here. I just thought that people might want to know about a great deal.

    I KNOW two months from now more than a few will cry, "Dang it, how did I miss that sale?" "Where am I gonna find a BP/W for less than $400?"

    And guess where they'll post it... :11:

    Moved to BC forum. I agree that this is more a discussion about the offer rather than an offer itself...

    When I was in Crystal River for fresh water diving this summer I used 6lb, with 3mm full weight suit, when wearing a BC. In Rainbow River for drift diving I was told to overweight (to stay down as it ranged between 6-22'), and used 10lb weight. In the ocean, I used between 10-12lb of weight when wearing 3mm full wetsuit. It was during a cruise ship port stop diving trip (ports of Belize, Cozumel, Belize, and Costa Maya), so I didn't get to dive more at each place. I forgot to take note of whether the dive ops had steel or alum tanks. So if I go to a BP/W, I don't know how much weight I could save. But it's sounding like I should get the SS plate.

    Oh, the Golem wing combo did state SS cam bands: "Virtually indestructible. High quality Swiss RiRi zipper. Two cam bands with stainless steel buckles included." For the Oxycheq wing combo, it doesn't say.

    Does anyone know if the Oxycheq package comes with SS cam bands? I can't find it in the description.

    Totontonian, some of that 6# you used at Crystal may well have been just to sink your BCD as some of them are several lbs buoyant even when empty. Obviously that's not the case with basic bp/w systems. Also, if you needed 6# with a 3mm, then you probably need only about half that with a dive skin. And it's not unusual for people to realize they actually need less lead than they've been using as they gain experience. So I'm saying you may end up needing the AL plate for some of your dives in order not to be overweighted.

    However, the steel plate combo is a better deal, so maybe it's better to get it to either save for later or to use for now, and look for deals on used AL plates/harnesses. I've seen them go for around $60 give or take (sometimes with webbing) on www.thedecostop.com .
