Reviewer: Richard L.Faber 149 - Too big? That was my only concern on purchase, as we all want more air. This is a big tank for sure, but externally, just slightly larger than a 120. It weighs in at roughly 62 lbs when full (versus 40 for an AL80), but obviously reduces weights needed. Im 63" and 180lbs, fit, but not super muscular - Im normal and the tank has been no issue. Even carried it up and down the stairs at Crescent Bay in Laguna, not an issue and it felt little different from carrying my old AL80. Same for boat dives, no issues getting up the ladder and into the boat. And the air capacity is incredible. Worth the investment, my safety comes first and the amount of air here means Im not dependent on this or that...View Full Review
Reviewer: Roy B. MooreSteel 50 Deco tank. - As a tech diver I use several diffrent deco gas bottles. Until now I have always used aluminum tanks for deco. I bought this 50 cf steel tank for my most used deco gas. I bought the 50 cf tank to have more reserve gas in case I had a problem and needed longer deco time. Usually a 40 cf aluminum would have be the norm. I have used the 50 steel and 40 aluminum together for long dives. This steel tank has many advances that I didnt have with the 40 aluminum. I use less weight, and when almost empty it is still negative. Plus I have 10 cf more gas. When I buy another deco tank, it will be this bottle again.
Reviewer: Carl KingGreat Cylinders, use on sidemount - I purchased 2 of these for my sidemount system and they are working great. As usual, Scuba.com worked with me for a great price, could not find anything close anywhere. I checked out several different online and local shops, not even close, saved a lot and service was great. These cyls are my primary and do the job. I was a little afraid they would rise but they were fine.
Reviewer: Christopher H.Lots of Air and Great Buy - My first tank, was really debating between 119 and 133, and I eventually decided on this 133. It took a little bit of getting use too and I thought it was too heavy at first but now I love it and am glad I decided on this. This tank is same height of my aluminum 80 and the girth is considerably wider at 12" around. This fits on my eagle tech 10 perfect but recommend a two strap system on BC to carry this tank. Provides me over 1 hr of air and no need for double tanks. Faber is always quality and shipping was super fast.
Reviewer: John S.Great Tank - Great tank at a very responsible price Im a big breather and bought this tank for a wreck diving and deep diving class. After the 40 min dive I still had 1300 psi.Another advantage of this tank was less lead needed for neutral buoyancy.I would highly recommend this tank. Thanks John S
Reviewer: Roderick S.This is a very nice tank! - i use this tank for filling a pcp air rifle. almost seems a shame, as it would be a very good diving tank. i really like the white finish. it looks nice and seems very durable with reasonable care. the boot that came on the tank is decent, and it came with a very nice valve, that works well for my purpose. if the tank was to be used for diving, or handled and stored loose, i might get a different boot for it that had better built-in roll resistance, and a slightly larger base for better stability when standing upright. the tank is heavy, but that is to be expected for this type of product. it is not so heavy that it is difficult to handle and move around. overall, im...View Full Review
Reviewer: Joseph ShieldsFaber 100 Cubic Foot FX Series High Pressure Steel Tank - The tank is a excellent piece of workmanship for Steel tanks. Spun steel from Italy is one of the best. And what makes it even better is Scuba.coms awesome price and free shipping . Shopped around and Scuba. com cant be beat.
Reviewer: Shane B.Faber HP 80 Steel Cylinder - The product received as described. I have used the product in the Pacific Northwest and it performs as expected. I would recommend this product for purchase from Scuba.com.
Reviewer: Scott MichaelGreat tank - I stepped up from an 80 cf aluminum tank. Not only do I have a lot more air, but I find that Im not having the excess buoyancy problems at the end of the dive. You will have to reposition where the tank hangs on your BCD and shed a considerable amount of lead.
