Scuba Gear Reviews by Butch Amann


Rating: Zeagle Flathead VI/ZX regulator works great 09/20/2006

I found this regulator very easy to use. It breathes very well and gave me no problems. Up to this time I had only used entry level equipment, so Im told any higher level regulator would be an improvement. Though I have not used a number of other regulators, I found this one has lived up to its reviews and promises. It also was priced very well for its high quality.

Mares Dragon Ergo BC with MRS Plus Weight System
Rating: Mares-Dragon-Ergo-BC-with-MRS-Plus-Weight-System Mares Dragon BCD a winner 09/20/2006

I recently purchased the Mares Dragon Ergo BCD with the MRS Plus weight system. I looked into several other models before making my decision. I am very happy with the vest. It fits well and is easy to put on and get off. The weight release system functions extremely well, and was easy to add or change weights even while underwater. The side pockets are easily accessible. The only problems I had were with the tank clamp, which seemed to be a little hard to get tight, and it did rub a bit in the front shoulder area. This may be in part due to the newness of the unit, and may get better as it is used more.

Mares Dragon Ergo BC with MRS Plus Weight System
Rating: Mares-Dragon-Ergo-BC-with-MRS-Plus-Weight-System Sherwood Computer works great 09/20/2006

After researching several dive computers I decided on purchasing the Sherwood Wisdom model. I ordered mine with the compass and quick disconnect accessories. Ive found this computer to be easy to use and also easy to read. The disconnect allows me to conveniently take the unit with me when filling out my log without having to drag along my entire bcd or the rest of the regulator assembly. The many features in the computer all worked very well and enabled me to keep track of all my essential data. It saves a lot of time and figuring later.

Dive Optics Stick-On Optic Lenses for Masks
Rating: Dive-Optics-Stick-On-Optic-Lenses-for-Masks Dive Optx work great 09/20/2006

I wear glasses full time and was having some trouble reading my gauges and/or computer. I ordered the Dive Optx to match my reading prescription and installed them as directed in my mask. I can now read my indicators clearly just like using my bifocal glasses. The Dive Optx installed easily and work very well. I had no problems with them during mask clearing either. They stayed right in place. These are very good product.
