    Question

    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....

    Thumbs up SCUBA GLIDE 2000

    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

    Scubapro Glide 2000

    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

    Thumbs up

    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.
