    Has anyone tried the Scubapro Glide 2000 BC?

    It is usually sold in the UK, i dont know if its sold in the US by another name?

    How do u find it in tropical waters?

    and given that a BC is defalted underwater, does a BC really make a difference down there?

    Thanks for ur feedback....

    VERY GOOD BC

    MANY AWARD IN DIVING MAGAZINES
    ELECTED BY ? (dont remember) BC OF THE YEAR 2000
    VERY CONFORTABLE OUT OF WATER WHYLE WALKING WITH THE BOTTLE.
    GOOD SAFETY POSITION ON SURFACE ( NO FACE DIP INTO WATER ).
    GOOD VOLUME ( ARM CHAIR LIKE BC, IT IS A NON WING BC OF COURSE ).
    THE INFLATOR IS VERY GOOD ( WELL KNOW SCUBAPRO INFLATORS ).
    IT IS HYDRODYNAMIC.
    QUITE GOOD STABILITY OF THE TANK.
    UNDERWATER ALSO ( NOT A LEAST ) VERY CONFORTABLE.
    STRONG MADE
    THE SCOULDER CLIPS A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO OPEN BECAUSE COVERED ( TO BE PROTECTED ) ONLY ACCESSIBLE ON THE SIDES.

    I USED ONE DURING VACATION

    I PERSONNALLY LIKE WING BC BUT THAT IS A CHOICE

    FA

    concernig BC within same category : this is what the magasine " Plongeurs June 2001 " is proposing regarding a test they performed in a pool and in Egypt ( red sea )

    1 Aqualung pro QD
    2 Seac sub pro 2000
    3 Scubapro Glide 2000
    4 Oceanic Nemo 1000
    5 Cressi Safety 109
    6 Omer Tekno pro 2000
    7 Masterlift evolution Beuchat
    8 Sporasub Matrix

    But try the BC and compare them with others.
    YOU HAVE TO FEEL CONFORTABLE WITH IT not the people who are testing BC.

    There is no bad BC

    I have a Glide 2000 and think it is a great BC and probably 50% of my diving in it has been in the Red Sea.

    Like others have mentioned I have now moved on to Wings for recreational diving but still use the Glide for pool sessions and assisting on OW courses - will probably keep it until it falls apart, which could be some time as after 2 years, about 100 o/w dives and umpteen pool sessions it still looks good as new.
