NEED YOUR HELP

Post Number:#1  Postby george » Mon Sep 04, 2006 12:55 pm

Guys, I'm flying to Hong Kong on Wed 6th Sept and will look for some diving gears there.  I'm looking for a good  but reasonably priced BC and reg plus a dive com too. Any suggestions on brand and model I should buy? Really appreciate for some info and probably the pricing too.

Thanks in advance....! :)

some pointers about me :

1. I'm still an OW diver
2. Dive for almost 6 years
3. Dive only 2X a year
4. Going for my Advance in May
5. Currently using Scubapro equipt

I might be biased coz im using all of them but frankly speaking its really realiable:
Regulator: Scubapro MK25/S600 Price: RM2,200
Dive Com: Suunto Stinger Price: RM2,296
BCD: Currently using Oxycheq, skimpy BC and very lite, easy in travellin but i want pockets and lots padding for comfort u can try Scubapro Classic Plus. U can ask HollowMan for his feedback. As for others u may want to share other brands as well....cheers!

Scubapro has an office in HK. If not mistaken, the gear that is on sale here & Singapore comes through that office. Suggest you gather the prices in KL before you go there.

Pssst....can kirim or not?

yup bro, i own a classic plus. i personally like it. it is a good jacket type bcd, the pocket compartments are practical, fits all water conditions, comfortable to wear and above all durable, i have had mine for a while but still in good shape.   :)
yg mcm jim dan holemaster pakai cool gak ..wings nye style  8-)

Memang problem kalo ade defect tapi sebelum aku beli tu kene check betoi2 gak dulu. If ade defect gak bile dah pakai then aku bleh anta balik. So kalo ade ape2 pesanan tu just PM me jer lah...bulan ni aku takde Hong Kong...maybe next month la kot...!

For BC, I would recommend to go with the Oxycheq and backplate.  Regulator, just get the MOST expensive set that YOU CAN AFFORD. No cheap off brand stuff. Your life depends on it underwater. Your BC can fail, your fins can break, and your suit can tear, but you can still "live" with it, but your regulator fails, that is, big big trouble.

For me, I dive only 1 or 2 times a year. So since I only have that short of time to enjoy the dives, I don't mind spending on some good equipment and enjoy the dives while it lasted.
