Oceanic EOS MaxFlex Regulator with Dry Valve Technology
Rating: Oceanic-EOS-MaxFlex-Regulator-with-Dry-Valve-Technology breath easy and dive like its not even there. 08/01/2012

We all used the older FDX 10 model (2nd stage is bigger) and slowly but surely all 4 of us have made the switch to the EOS. I highly recommend it. It is supper smooth and breathes easily down twice deep as recreation depths. This is my our first review on it. It is a great REG and this one Ibought now is a gift for my aunt. If you are a must upgrade buff, the only improvement I can even recommend is a custom mouth piece and a easyflex metal hose.

Oceanic EOS MaxFlex Regulator with Dry Valve Technology
Rating: Oceanic-EOS-MaxFlex-Regulator-with-Dry-Valve-Technology 1st BCD with Rear Inflation and "I am never going back" 02/27/2012

Its was very hard to find a womens BCD that was as good as the guys but fit a womens body. Most of them where pink and gave up all D rings and other useful items. I wanted 40lb or more lift (it was awesome and lifted me and my 100cu tank out of the water:), double tank bands, intregraded weights, and lots of D rings. This was the best and ONLY option. I LOVE IT! Makes swiming out from shore so much easier. I can use heavy tanks. Hang my pony. flashlights, safety sausage and reel. Put stuff in my pockets etc. It took a dive or two to get completely comfortiable with rear inflation, but love it. No sqweeze. feel more freedom of movement AND enough lift to get you up out of the water.

Ocean Quest Rubber Shim
Rating: Ocean-Quest-Rubber-Shim A must have... 02/16/2012

Sun Screen needs to be applied long before you get in the water and you need to dry off reapply it though out the day. Not good for you or the reef! I love these rash gaurds: No sunburn, stinging jellyfish, fire coral or equipment rash. My whole family uses rash guards.

XS Scuba Replacement Paintball Quick Disconnect Adapter
Rating: XS-Scuba-Replacement-Paintball-Quick-Disconnect-Adapter boats see me before I surface! 02/16/2012

I turn it on when I get to 750psi. The boat is above me before I get to my saftey stop. I also like using it on my shore dives so boat traffic doesnt clip me or so I would be seen if I wasnt able to get back to shore.

Sherwood Wisdom H/P Quick Disconnect Hose Kit
Rating: Sherwood-Wisdom-H-P-Quick-Disconnect-Hose-Kit nice option to have 02/16/2012

I have used both quick release and standrad hose. The quick release is nice if you want to review yr dive, upload yr dive history ...or double check your time to fly. Also nice if you like to keep your computer well protected (separate from yr regs). I have found that the hoses dont last as long as you expect. I have had my wisdom since 2005 and have replaced the hose twice.

Sherwood Wisdom H/P Quick Disconnect Hose Kit

Nice little bag. Not very big, but nice for a few small items. It looks like the bag can be attached to a larger pack.

Sherwood Wisdom H/P Quick Disconnect Hose Kit
Rating: Sherwood-Wisdom-H-P-Quick-Disconnect-Hose-Kit "great bag for lionfish to lobster and...." 01/06/2012

This is a great bag for lionfish to lobster. It doesnt have much drag as my old bag. I love the spring handle for my lionfishing. Put the spear tip in the bag with the lionfish on it and let the bag close, pull the spear out and the lionfish stays in the bag. This bag is new to me I hope that it lasts. Tip: twist bag and then clip it doubled to reduce size and drag until needed.

XS Scuba Din To Yoke Regulator Adapter
Rating: XS-Scuba-Din-To-Yoke-Regulator-Adapter worth having in your dive bag 01/06/2012

No matter how many times you tell them there will be times that they dont put DIN on the boat for you. This is a dive bag must for those who dive with DIN regulators. Save your dive or someone elses

XS Scuba Kevlar Bug Grabber 2mm Diving Gloves
Rating: XS-Scuba-Kevlar-Bug-Grabber-2mm-Diving-Gloves Best Hunting Gloves For The Money.... 01/06/2012

I like the ALL ArmorTex but when I want to save a few bucks I buy these. They work great for spearingfishing, lobster and lionfish hunting. I go through a lot of gloves doing lionfish hunting so if you want to get a few extra miles out of them use a little FLEXIABLE glue along the sewing seams on the fingers. Also you may like the fit of one size bigger than you would normally order (same goes for the the AllArmorTex).

Rating: Akona-All-ArmorTex-Diving-Gloves Best Hunting Gloves Ive Owned... 01/06/2012

I have tried many gloves and still sometimes use others but if you got the extra $ to buy these they are the BEST. I use the for spear fishing, lobster and lionfish (I am a hard core lionfish hunter with a record of 48 on one tank).
