16 lbs when the wet suit is new, 13 lbs with close to 150 dives on the suit.
The HP120 is nuetral at 500 psi.
I am just barley bouyant at the surface when I start a dive, as the air gets used I become more bouyant.
My options for doing a saftey stop are as follows.
1) grab a piece of kelp.
2) grab the anchor chain
3) pick up a rock for ballast
4) do my stop at 20 ft instead of 15.
It a system that works well for me, but is definatly not for new divers.
