Personaly, I don't like aluminum tanks because I need to add 5 to 7 pounds of weight on my belt to compensate for their end of dive buoyancy compared to my steels. But I appreciate how when you get used to diving with a favorite set-up, its nice to keeep it consistent. I too like the HP 80's (which are really 66's for most boat fills of 2800) - their stubby size is a lot easier on the back and easier thru surf.

Again, hope it turns up. (did you really have this done at a SportChalet? I won't let them touch my gear.)
