I'm a newbie and It's time to get my own tanks. I'll be diving in cold waters, in drysuit, with thick under garment, using sidemount.
So my plan is to get 12l 232bar steel tanks and the question is which one? Options are Faber, BTS and Vitkovice. I'll be diving mostly in fresh water.
I've read that galvanized Fabers will last forever if taken care of. I will get new tanks, not used. New steel tanks wont be cheap in any case but is it worth paying the extra money for the "best"?
