Chris, I think that we have had this discussion before. If you and others want to dive like we did in the 60ís and early 70ís that your business. I just think that it is safer with a BC.
Iím a Halcyon, Diverite, OMS, Oxycheq, deepsea supply, etc. dealer. I support halcyon equipment because they have a good product, and they were the innovators with wing design, backup lites, weight systems, closed lift bags, reels, spools, gaiters, etc. all copied by OMS, Oxycheq, deepsea supply etc. for about the same price(by the way the margins are all the same, none of them are very good). I just donít like to see the people that did the R and D ripped off for there ideaís. I know that is the way business is, but I donít have to like it or support it.
Anyway Chris dive the way you want (nobody really cares). I just hope it doesnít catch up with you.
