How do the Tusa 4000 and Tusa 7000 differ? Which is better? I am about to order the 7000. Thank You, Adam
Darrick, thank you for your quick response. I have repaired other dump valves as they are fairly simple devices. The upper just unscrews but the lower doesnt seem to operate the same way. I have a lot of dive equipment and most of my equipment is at my home on the island of Curacao. Plenty of dive shops but harder to find a Tusa dealer Do you know how the lower valves are removed? Thank you again, John
I own this BC and have been very pleased with it. Ive had for aprx. 4 years now and enjoy the comfort and its hybrid design. My question is I believe I have some sand particles in my two lower dump valves and have not been able to open. The top dump valves unscrew but have not been able to open the bottoms. Suggestions? Thank you, John
I am looking for a vertical orientation when bc is inflated and on the surface. I have a full face mask with a snorkel port th the upper right corner of the face plate so the face down orientation is not feasible. Which TUSA BC would be best? I also have a 48 inch waist at 5ft 6 in tall so size is critical.
Hello Gary, You may want to consider a jacket inflated BC by TUSA to meet your needs. Take a look at this recommendation: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-2/006611/TUSA-Voyager-Travel-Light-BCJ-1800-BC.html
Hello dear first im confused between this BCd and Tusa X-WING. which one you recommend for moderate diver? and i need help in sizing. for my length (180 cm), chest (110 cm) and weight (84 kg) with a wide shoulder ,i have to go with large. but the problem is my waist size 32" before i ordered mares dragon and because of my waist i choose M. but it was very short on me, even the chest strap become near my nick so i had to pull the shoulder strap more, and the D-Rings became over my shoulders. so for Tusa what size you recommend for me for conquest and x-wing thank you

A.W.L.S. (Advanced Weight Loading System)
TUSA's patented Advanced Weight Loading System (A.W.L.S.) allows the diver to insert weight into both left and right weight cartridges eliminating the need for a weight belt. Rear trim pockets combine with the A.W.L.S. to optimally balance the weight load on each TUSA integrated BC jacket.
Independent Harness System (I.H.S.)
The Independent Harness System isolates the BC jacket's harness from the air cell, tightly supporting the tank even with changes in air cell inflation/deflation. The I.H.S. prevents tank slippage and eliminates any gaps between the tank and your back.
Ultimate Stabilizing Harness (U.S.H.)
TUSA's Ultimate Stabilizing Harness completely eliminates tank roll and delivers an amazing fit. The U.S.H. securely holds the air cylinder in place with optimally placed rails and brings the tank closer to the body increasing tank control while reducing weight.
3-D Air Cell
The 3-D Cubic Air Cell allows for greater internal volume (lift) in a more compact and streamlined design. The 3-D cell increases diver comfort by expanding outwardly away from the body eliminating that 'squeezed' feeling upon inflation. It also maximizes efficiency by keeping you more streamlined underwater.
Service and Repair (BCJ)
Q: Can I get replacement AWLS pockets for my BCJ?
Yes, replacement Velcro and mechanical AWLS integrated weight pockets are available, please contact your TUSA authorized retailer.
Q: My BCJ bladder is leaking air or has been punctured, can it be patched?
Your BCJ will have to be evaluated to determine if the size and location of the puncture can be repaired. Please contact your local authorized TUSA retailer.
Q: What is the proper care and maintenance of my BC?
Rinse the outside and inside of the BCJ with warm fresh water thoroughly to stop the formation of salt crystals on vital components. This should be done as soon as possible post-dive and prior to allowing your BCJ to dry. Once rinsed, line dry completely and store partially inflated in a cool dry place away from heat, electric motors and other sources of ozone. To maintain the BCJ, annual service/inspection by an Authorized TUSA retailer is required. This is also a prerequisite to retain the warranty.
