That would put the LP104 at about the same buoyancy as the Faber 71.4's , -6 pounds each empty. I have dived the 71.4's with no lead. Either setup places most of the negative weight on your back which to me gives that heavy turtle shell feeling and you best stay horizontal. I dived the single AL80 and the SS plate dry with a ton of ditchable lead(22#) on my belly but I liked that roll into any position feeling of full control. Not a whole lot of air but good for some dives.
