    I just bought a Bare Blackwing, and with only 2 dives on it, I love it. I looked at them all and for the money I bought the Bare. Couldn't find out much on them because they are new. Really comfortable.

    I know many are happy with SeaQuest Balance.

    If you want a back inflation BC, why not look into a Backplate+Wing system.

    Why do not check the BP/W ?

    Even if you do not get the BP/W and you go for back inflation get one that has a plate running along the back. I do no have it in mine and that's a big problem if you want to put anything more than an average tank. Even if you put just a big steel tank (over 100 cuf) it feels really uncomfortable w/o the plate.

    I believe Bare ones have a plastic plate.

    But if I we you I would get BP/W
