I finally had a chance to get out and dive with my new rig today. Two dives at Bainbridge quarry in PA. All I can say, after getting everything adjusted (which took me a few tries!) is that the difference in my diving was simply amazing. I took some time to get the proper weight sorted out, and was able to take ALOT of weight off the belt (keep in mind I also added a 6lb STA). This is the first time i've ever used back inflation and also the first time diving a backplate. In only two dives i can tell a HUGE difference.
I'm very, very pleased with this purchase.
(p.s. - Kracken, I actually didn't get a new 'tall' plate after all. I just had to tweak this one a little to get it dialed in just right. life is good!)
