I don't use the crotch strap on singles (Note,
since I don't dive doubles, that means I never
use the crotch strap). Folks that dive doubles
say you do need it with doubles.
55 pounds is WAY more than you need with a single.
Most folks I know diving cold water with a single
on a backplate have a 36 pound wing, a few have a
27 pound wing.
Bungee on the wing: just not necessary. There are
folks who get rabid that it's a really dumb idea,
but my feeling is that if it's not necessary,
don't have it.
