"It is pretty hard to screw up a plate, but I think the Dive-Rite plate blows. No holes along the edges, and the harness points are
at odd angles. I looked at it, but it just didn't sit well with me."
actually, i used the 'dive rite' alum backplate
several times last year. i borrowed it
after using the 'halcyon' steel plate and realizing
that the steel plate was a bit much for me.
i have to confess that the 'dive rite' alum plate
was very very comfy for me, and had i not committed
to purchasing a custom plate from someone else, i would
have plunked down my money to jim for the 'dive rite'
as for the missing holes, well, i didn't miss them
(aren't they only used to screw in the 'halcyon' back
pad...?...if so, then i didn't need the back pad).
as for the harness points, i didn't notice anything
wrong/bad/weird there either; but, see, this is
perhaps where the whole personal/size issue comes into
play: may have fit fine for my stature but not
i certainly would not knock the 'dive
rite' alum plate based on my own experience,
but you have your own set of experience, too.
