The people I have talked to on boats with 119's like them, but they are fat heavy tanks (50 lbs full) that probably take a few dives to get used to.

Walt is right that you won't get 119 CF after the first dive, but you will still be in the 95 to 100 CF range. If you want or need a lot of air the tank does fit the bill. You may find though that you are coming back to the boat from most dives with a lot of air left over.

I think he is confusing the 119 with the 120 in terms of length. The 120 is the really long tank. I think the 119 is only slightly longer than the 100.
