"the reason i went w/a steel tank was
b/c of the size of the damned thing: the al80
was just too long for me and a little too wieldy.
i switched to an hp80 b/c i could handle the size
better, not for any other reason"
That is a nice little tank 33 lbs full and 27 lbs empty neutrally bouyant. If you dive with an AL80 you would have to add 3 lbs to your belt and if you ditch your belt then you ascend faster. Take your pick but why all the fighting over 3 lbs?
