Control of buoyancy isn't the issue. It's the dynamic control of
trim. With three and a half quarts of extra air in your suit at
the beginning of the dive (if you don't you will be positive at
the end of the dive with an empty tank), you have seven pounds
of trim change rolling from end to the other. When you are head
up, it's like seven pounds of ankle weights. When you are head
down, it's like a seven pound lift bag tied to your feet.
