Hello, I am a PADI Instructor looking for a quality BCD that is easy to travel with and good to teach in. Good to teach in is key, I want it to have all the same style attaches/ inflators/ deflators etc. as students would use on a shop BCD. I want to hear from instructors who have used this BCD. How has it worked for you?
For the most part, continuity in scuba manufacturing means that the vast majority of recreational scuba gear has components in the same place, with the same functions. This is done on purpose for convenience as much as safety. Unless you go with a product with the I3 inflator system or the Mares Airtrim system, you won''t have any concern for students understanding and recognizing your gear and it''s functions.
I am new to diving, and want to get my first BCD and want to get a good quality one to start with, I have heard that the Pearl is up there but not top of the line. Now this may be a dumb question, but do new BCDs come with a Low Pressure inflator hose, or do I have to buy that separately? Thanks
A fellow woman diver bought this bc and says she has difficulty with the lower portion which contains the weight pokes shifts front and back. I was considering this bc but am weary after hearing her complaint. Thoughts?
Hello Christy, the only reason I can think of that the weight would shift in the pockets is that there are only a few weight in pocket that there is room for it to shift around while you are underwater. Instead of having large weights in the pockets. I would suggest putting smaller weights that will equal the total.
