I'm looking for a LP steel with 75-80 cuft. So far, so good. Now the problems start.

None of the many local scuba shops stock the 75.8 cuft sold under ScubaPro label. This tank is not listed on Faber's extensive production list.
One shop claims to have 80 cuft Faber tanks but depending on which associate you ask, this tank has from zero to four lbs of empty buoyancy. Such a tank is also not listed on Faber's list.

Faber's web site does not show a US distributor, so there is no-one to contact who actually might have an idea of their products.

Does Faber exist at all? Which tanks do they actually sell (under which label) in the USA?

What are the true specs? I need total weight empty and buoyancy empty and am looking for one as light weight as possible with as much empty buoyancy as possible. 5lbs would be great.

Any scuba shop owners who can help? I need the (affordable) tank before Saturday in LA/Orange County. Thanks.
