H2O Alpha 2 Mask
Rating: Love this mask 02/18/2009
i go this mask with the prescription lens s. scuba.com installed the lenses before shipping to me. i can see great - i cant believe how cheap it was - if i had known i would have gotten a prescription mask years ago. (i used to wear contact lenses regularly, but stopped and have been using my remaining supply only for diving.) the only problem i had with the mask was a need to play with the position on my face a little bit so that it didnt put pressure on the bridge of my nose, but as i said just a small change in position and no more problem.
XS Scuba High Pressure ( HP ) Gauge Hose 7/16 Inch Male
Rating: Good hose but check the spindle inside before replacingfirst 02/18/2009
It is a nice hose and I like that it is a little shorter than my old hose. I replaced the hose because it was leaking at the swivel. After replacing the hose, it still leaked at the base of the guage so I found out that my real problem was the little spindle inside (it has two o rings on it and is how the swivel moves without leaking) was broken. A local dive shop replaced it for free and told me these break all the time on their rental equipment. Moral of the story is this is a nice hose, but check the spindle first.
