So I've finally paid off my credit card, and obviously instantly taken out another one........ I've got a second hand all in one wing that I bought as an ex school wing a while back and its great to dive, but its old, tatty, and sometimes the amount of water I'm emptying out of it is a little bit more than I'd expect. So I'm thinking about keeping it for holidays, but getting myself new, sold and robust for UK diving, but the world of modular bp&w's is something I've not delved into before.
So where do I start? I'm quite floaty and tend to find I have to pile on a bit of weight to get down (14-16KG's), and in an ideal world I'd like to stick with dumpable weights on the harness and weights on the cylinder straps, so I'm not faffing with weight belts as I can never seem to get heavy ones tight enough. The harnesses without any releases weird me out a bit, and I usually dive with a 15L or 12L stumpy. In an ideal world I'd like 2 cylinder straps too, but understand that might not be the easiest on a stumpy. Also I'm trying to avoid it being horrifically expensive.
So has anyone got any suggestions? Custom Divers are just down the road from me, so I've been looking at theirs online. I know there's a halcyon setup that seems to be popular too, but I think its about 900 quid, which is a bit rich for me.
