    I am in the market for a used bcd and could use some help chosing one. I like scuba pro, will consider other makes. I mostly do rec diving.

    Although all are similar, each has different features. It's all about what YOU feel comfortable in and what features you will use. A quick search turned these up. Maybe PM the owners about how they chose, what they liked, (or didn't).

    Check with your local dive shops to see what they have available for you to try on and play with the various features. Maybe even try wet (at least in the pool) before you make your final choice.

    It is only for the OP's own good........

    The proper path needs to be shared with all..........

    At least thatÂ’s what I have been told in multiple posts........:)
