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.
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.
A must have for BCDs with single tank bands -and why not make your doubles slip proof too?!
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.
I have integrated BCD, BUT I snorkel and free dive, so I need a belt. This a great belt and a great price. I have paid a lot more for low quality, but this belt is HIGH QUALITY
Extra rings make it easy to bring all that equipment you want to have along. Pony bottle, spool, saftey sausage, banger....
Great for all Divers! Use an allen Key and convert to DIN in moments! EVERYONE should have these!
Everyone can refill as many times as they need over the weekend. No more need for CO2 bombs.
Great for my daughters boards. Makes flights and storage so much simplier
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.
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.
Very comfy and very warm. My wife and daughter kept taking mine so I bought them one each as well. HINT wife and daughter seem to like it sized too big
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.
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.
Great belt. I have used plastic buckles but they can crack and the buckle can pop out. This is a great belt and a awesome price!
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
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).
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).
Very nice gloves. Not recommended for lionfish or lobster spearfishing. Great for everything else.
