    Looking for a set of lp85s. Sidemount, mirrored matched set preferred but tell me what you have.

    I’m in KCMO (64083) if you are far... tell me shipping cost.

    Good luck, you'll need it. I gave up and bought new ones, but maybe you'll get lucky.

    I believe Randy at Piranha Dive has some good pricing. I just got some LP50's from him, nice price and shipping was included. Think LP85's were there too.

    I think I'd sell a kidney before selling off my collection of LP (Worthington/XS Scuba) LP85's.... Got some LP95's too...

    Now, if I could just find the opportunity to dive them......

    Good Luck!

    There is a big difference between Lp 85s. The bouyancy characteristics of the older worthingtons from Xsscuba and the newer Fabers are substantial. The worthingtons stay negative thruout the range while the fabers swing negative to positive. A full worthington can weigh 45 pounds. For sidemounting the worthingtons would be better as you wouldn’t have to worry about the floating tail issue as much.

    Someone down here just bought a set of Worthington manifolded Lp 85 twins for $150.
