no stability advantage, if anything there is a stability advantage to the STA-less design as it brings the center of mass closer to the center.
The main advantage of STA's is ease of changing tanks over on a bucking boat if you have a STA on both tanks *super nice btw*, and ease of switching a plate between singles/doubles/ccr.
Ohhhhh. I forgot about that advantage! Yes, super nice.
I never had stability issues with my DSS STA-less plate and wing. I switched for the other reasons listed above in my post. Early on people tried to dive without an STA using wings that had no sort of stabilization feature built into the wing. I saw people doing that very early on. There was alot of sway of the tank in those instances. But it sounds like today's wings designed to be used without an STA have features to prevent that. So in that regard I stand corrected. That is good to know.
