    Thank you very much everyone. That’s really good feedback and I’ll strike that course off the list in favour of some YouTube videos and a few books (including the older copies listed above). If I...

    I'm very cautious about which courses I pick as I have read over and over again about the lack of necessity for various courses - particularly the PADI...

    Can I use a Miflex hose with an SPG?

    I'm sure the answer is 'of course' but just thought I'd check.

    My (warm-water only) dive setup has evolved over the years to its current configuration: Backplate and wing, single piece harness,...

    Thanks again everyone. Really reassuring to hear that I'm on the right thought process and that the raw numbers I'm suggesting (coupled with an appropriate level of unconscious competence) aren't...

    Thank you all for your replies - they are really very useful.

    I hadn't considered the RYA powerboat course... which is handy because I have that certification already (Level 2).

    I'll have a...

    Sensible No. of dives before Padi Divemaster?

    Hi everyone.

    Just got back from another dive trip and am looking at the next steps.

    I am and obviously still consider myself to be very much a learner, but I've now logged my 70th dive and...

    Brilliant - that's really helpful - thank you (I like the tip re: the bright webbing too)

    I use little Aqualung Mikron regs and stage so they're very light indeed (thinking of the nose forward...

    Woz/Steve - thank you.

    Yes, I'm diving in a 5mm wetsuit and I don't think I need a STA as both cambands pass all the way through both the backplate and the wing and the wing itself has a pair of...

    Thanks all.

    Ah - some good points on the rescue course there.

    I'm going for a week and in that time I'm doing the peak performance course, having a couple of 1:1 dives (to get my confidence...

    Hi everyone - very excited as today the last bits of kit arrived to let me build my first BP&W. This is the list of all the bits of kit I currently have on my living room floor:

    1) Wing: Apeks...
  12. All sorted now - couldn't get hold of a wing to...

    All sorted now - couldn't get hold of a wing to fit the backplate, so switched to an Apeks setup instead. Seems really hard to find in-stock dive equipment at the moment.
  13. Thanks everyone, this is really helpful. I don't...

    Thanks everyone, this is really helpful. I don't mind buying new but I will keep an eye out for a bargain.

    Mark - an OMS wing in new condition like that would have been ideal, but I need it for a...
  14. Single tank wing - which manufacturer for quality?

    Hi everyone. This is my first post following my introduction so hoping I can get some help. I've been assembling my first backplate and wing setup and I'm ready for the expensive bit: the wing.

    I...

    Hi folks.

    I live in Manchester (UK) and usually only do holiday diving in warm water. I'm still learning, with just over 60 dives and am just giving my equipment an upgrade and am sure I'll have...
