Hi SKK..

My Single rig setup ( Halycon Pioneer) not required STA at all, I feel great with my old setup, recently I purchase Eclipse Wing and I need the STA. If your tank still senget, tight the tank strap 1st before you purchase STA. anyways STA also help the weight (3lb) setup as  well.

What BP/Wing do you use?

Safe diving

i'm using an oxycheq bp and sig #40 for singles... sometimes it does misalign... a bit lah.. maybe 3-5degree... do i really need a STA? :P (need your opinion) will it affect the bouyancy when the tank misalign by a bit?

or.. it's not a big deal... :)
cheers...

skk, i am taking a shot in the dark: could it be that your tank straps are not tightened enuf to your tank?

well, it's tight, but probably it needs to be tighter :P

so, did a search... read here and there.. and found this thing called STA... widely used in US... but it's not cheap though... i mean, it's kinda not worth to spend that kind of money for this adaptor :) so, just wanna ask for views...

i remember u help me tighten my tank bands at the cheras pools  ;)

probably.. similar to this situation .. where u can hit 130km/h with a kancil  and arrive in penang in 2 hrs... but it's more "the right thing to do" if u have a bigger capa. car :) .. 
cheers...

I use a STA on my MachV Oxycheq 30lb wing just because it does not have inlets for the tank strap. Either than that i dont think its necessary. I dont use it on my 18lb and 50lb which already has inlets.

SKK..play around with the strap and treadding....if your set up is meant to be use without an STA and it still goes senget (no centre)..some thing must be wrong....but its a simple set up and the solution should be simple too.....just take alook and play around..

I use Halcyon. For me STA means convenience for the dives I do -  no need to thread the 2 tank bands through the wing every time I change from twinset to singles and vice versa. If you dive exclusively using single tank, then you just install the tank bands permanently thru the inlets and do not really need a STA.

http://www.diveriteexpress.com/bcs/tankstraps.shtml based on diveriteexpress.com .. STA with 2 straps is $145

i think there is another cheaper version....

http://www.leisurepro.com/Prod/DIV1090SS.html?Search=op%3ddtSearch%26Term%3dsingle%2btank%2badaptor%26SearchFlag%3dall%26AdvSrchSortField%3dRelevance%26DescSort%3d0%26Hit%3d1

not sure what are the differences except the colors?  .. this one is $60 with 2 non-slip pad. Lot's of ppl using this one. i don't know why the earlier one solde my diveriteespress is so expensive

SKK,

The best way to secure the tank strap when it is wet not dry. Always try to wet the strap first before strapping.
