started out with a spora sub kit regs and bcd, actually didnt mind it too much, very very basic yes but at the time it was all i needed, worked i OZ for a while in the troppics and used wave bcds and Apollo eco diver bcds, they wer e ok, but wont go there again
as progressed up the ranks,, i went to a mares vector chrome bcd, was ok much more advanced that the sporsub,, suited my purpose just fine, although when inflated was rather bulky under the arms, heaps of LIFT!! regs changed to a Aqualung Calypso set with a dacor computer, CRAP!!!died!! the regs were great i had comments that it breathed better than the scubapro s600!! was still in a two peice moray enduroII at that time, did the job ,, then i started teaching so i got rid of the Vector, change to a Oceanic Probe BCD and Aqualung Titan LX adjustable with SEA first stage,, WOW, what a change since then havent looked back, have tried a few other regs sherwood, oceanic , scubapro apollo, and the LX takes the cake.. The Probe has huge s/s drings and huge pockets, integrated weight and easy to acces the pockets with the weights in,, it has pockets at the baCK for torches, spare mask etc and vey easy to acces, and is very comfortable with twins on..
went to one peice suit Pro 1000, Atlantis semi dry and now a cressi lontra,, mmm what a lovely suit this is,, so now its the lontra in the summer and my Bravo drysuit in the winter.. masks?? far out ive lost count i have lots of spare but im stuck with my tusa splendive 2 with prescription lenses, beatiful mask, TUSA ROCKS,, have been down the Blade track with fins,, then was convince to try splits at first i protested that splits were bad now i will never turn back SPLITS ROCK!!! oceanic vortex with SS spring straps....
