    Hi guys,

    i tested the xdeep Stealth 2.0 with rec-bladder for 10 days on a diving vacation. it was great but i saw a finnsub fly speleo with advanced weight placement system (2 rows instead of 1 in the middle). Is there anyone with experience on the fly speleo? How does it perform compared to the xdeep? I am not sure which one to buy. I am doing only recreational diving in both warm and cold water, sometimes some wreck diving.

    Thank you for your opinions.

    I think Finnsub is out of business

    I tried to contact the Australian dealer as well as 3 or 4 Asian dealers and did not get a single answer. I did some googling and found a few comments saying they were closed. Hopefully this info is wrong as they make some excellent weight options. Can someone please confirm that they are definitely open?

    I have been using stealth 2 for two years, mainly fresh water and cold lakes. When I go deep I was using a 7mm with a 7mm shorter over that so a ton of neoprene and the 4 pockets held sufficient weight. I am 5'6, 145lbs. Even then I only used 10lbs so could get another 10 or more in the spine pouches if needed. Used AL80s.

    When I ordered the S2.0 Classic I do not recall any option but the single bladder. Maybe I am wrong or it was just where I ordered it. That was nearly 3 years ago.

    I looked at Finnsub prior to purchasing my Stealth Tec (as seen in avatar) and was unable to find a dealer who would respond to my emails. I even tried to email them directly but again, no luck.
