Pros/Cons of each? I seem to notice more experienced divers with steel so I thought I'd ask. I've never dove with a steel tank, but I was thinking about buying a second tank, and was wondering if I should get another Aluminum or try a steel tank, since they appear to hold more air.
i would just buy another AL 80, its better to have similar tanks to keep your weighting the same so you dont have to keep messing with it. Only way i would go steel is if i was looking to get more into tech type diving or making a switch to steel and would buy a 2nd steel in the near future and get rid of the al 80 or use it as a spare for when your getting a hydro done, have company, or may be doing 3 dives in a day
