A question for you salt divers. I dive a drysuit with pressed steel double LP 104's. This configuration allows me to be neutral at the 10ft stop with only 300 psi in my tanks and no air in my wing or suit. Should I change my configuration(different tanks) so that i'm positive and need a weightbelt or just rely on the redundancy of my drysuit to get me up? I don't miss wearing a 30lb weightbelt with AL80's and a drysuit, but should I be positive at all? A lot of tech divers up here don't wear weightbelts, but that doesn't mean much to me if it's unsafe. Any help or suggestions?
Thanks,
Bill G.
