View Full Version : BC's
11-25-2002, 10:41 AM
Every time I forget my F'ing weight belt, I am ready to upgrade to a weight integrated BC. Anyway, Leisurepro has a dacor nautica ($175), and a Sherwood Freedom ($199) on sale right now.
Anyone have any input/feedback about these models?
Thanks in advance,

But have you considered going to a backplate rig where the weight IS the backpack?
In warm water ditchable weight may not even be needed if you have the correct plate assy.

The only problem I have found with my weight integrated BC is that it so heavy that it is a real pain to don or lift over the side of the boat after the dive.I take a lot of weight to sink and dive large steel tanks so the darn thing weighs a ton.I am probably going to end up with most of my weight on a belt and use only enough in the BC to keep my trim right.

Does you BP support doubles? Will it work with explorer wings?

Actually I think it fits doubles a bit better than most plates due to the contact angle.
Of course I am a bit biased.
