Scubamax Adjustable Lanyard
Rating: Promate-Adjustable-Lanyard Its a lanyard 07/13/2009

This is a lanyard. You attach it around your wrist and then to anything you dont want to loose. Ive never lost anything it was attached to so it seems to do the job.

Faber 149 Cubic Foot FX Series High Pressure Steel Tank
Rating: Faber-149-Cubic-Foot-FX-Series-High-Pressure-Steel-Tank Faber 149: one great cylinder. 07/13/2009

this is the cylinder to beat all cylinders. i have two of them (not twined) and i couldn’t be more pleased. perceived negatives: weight. not really an issue – they are only about 5 lbs heavier than a steel 120 or 130 length: not an issue either. i’m about 5’8” and have no problem at all with their size. for recreational divers that are not doing deco dives the size of these takes the “running low on air” worry out of standard dives (100+ min at 40 feet is easy). even if you are an air hog you will always finish a no-deco with air to spare. if you are a deco diver no problem (pony up to be on the safe side) but i can do 30+ min 130 fsw dive on air and still pop up on the boat with 1500 psi. if you don’t want to twin your tanks this is the best option i have seen. i would never go back.

Faber 149 Cubic Foot FX Series High Pressure Steel Tank
Rating: Faber-149-Cubic-Foot-FX-Series-High-Pressure-Steel-Tank "Stainless" Steel? 07/13/2009

Knife seems fine. Relatively easy to pull out with one hand and a comfortable size for a forearm knife. My only surprise was upon diving with it for the first time in fresh water (not even salt) it discolored along the serrated edge. I don’t believe this will hamper performance. Appears to be nice and sharp but the only thing I have cut so far with it is some cheese and my index finger. Did a good job on both.
