Life's too damn short for this nonsense.
This ain't rocket science, and how many of you can do "2.5% of anything" in your head?.
Use 3% of the Diver's body weight--that's 3# per hundred weight (who the heck knows exactly how much their rig weighs? Who cares?)
Compare the results with all of the science project formulas given here--you'll be about a pound off of their numbers. Depending on the age of your wet suit and how much beer you drank the night before, it won't make a difference.
Dive it and fine tune.
Move on, guys.
