View Full Version : Pony bottle holder

What do you all recommend? I have seen the Scuba Duba, but have no idea where to buy it. LP or any of the local dive shops don't seem to have it. There are several hokey variations out there, that I am quite skeptical about.
I don't want the one Weber uses, it doesn't work. :p

John: I have the scubaduba . It works OK I guess with a 13 CFT bottle,but doesn't hold my 30 CFT very well and it fishtails. I've seen some systems that require you to hose clamp hardware to EACH of your primary tanks as well as the pony - that seems like too much to me. I suppose that I could sling the 30 CFT, but I want it out of the way (behind me) when I am hunting. I'm looking for a better system.

Halcyon makes a strap set up that work real well, they have them at Tackleshack, I think they are $64.00.
TS also has strap assembly that attaches to the cam straps on you BC and it works well also, a 40 is almost too big for it but it does work.
I put a strap with a clip around the valve and clip it to the d ring on my right shoulder, with an aluminum tank it will float right under your arm, it stays out of the way most of the time.
I used the scuba duba thing several years ago and didn't think much of it.

Take a look at the "X" bracket, made by Reef. Works well for me.

My zeagle has an extra set of straps for a pony on the tank straps. They just sinch tight and don't have the plastic cams. It works good, but would be better with it's own set of cams. I have a question though. Do you guys that use a bottle all the time put extra weight in the opposite BC pocket to counter balance the weight of a pony?

Yep. In a 3mil, I carry 18 lbs.: 5 lbs. in each ditchable pocket. 5 lbs. in left trim pocket, 3 lbs. in rt.

I like the scubaduba for its simplicity. I cannot remember who we used to order them through... Ahah! It's Trident! http://www.tridentdive.com The TA12 or 13. Not sure if they sell to the public but their website appears to now.

Looked at the trident site, anyone use the pony bags? Looks good, might be easier to remove your pony in a jam ~zeN||
