    the bands are pretty high on those tanks. Are the tops secured with quick clips and then popped around the valves? Didn't seem like they were wrapped around the neck from the video.

    You will all have a blast in May, Bob is a great teacher and the course is well thought out. Also, the combo of Edd and Bob is hard to beat.

    *doh, Rob it is. Thanks Kevin, I'm asleep at the wheel here*

    Bob, who all else is going? I was sort of thinking about crashing the party . . .

    I have a couple of the Hollis rigs in my inventory and use them as well as a couple of other models from different manufacturers for students taking SM workshops with me.

    As Rob says, nothing works perfectly right out of the box but the Hollis is a popular choice and looks like it will do well in the market.


    I particularly like the way the rig is finished and the attention paid to detail. It is rugged and the positioning of the shoulder harness works well and is adjustable enough to make it work as a "loner" so it will probably be easy to customize. Also like that it comes with bungees, clips and cam bands.

    I have dived it a couple of times (caves and wrecks) and may grab one for myself in the spring to replace the highly modified Recon I am presently working with.

    Thanks for some other input.

    I know that most any rig will be so "generic" out of the box that it'll take heavy modifying. But the few instructors I talked with around here thought well of it.

    I am already considering a hybrid using this wing and a harness a la the Razor. It seems the simplicity of it all will blend back in closer to a HOG-type rig. I am a major fan of lightweight and simple.

    So far it's me and my usual cave buddy, Dave ... Bob Overstreet (wb416) and his new bride Penny, and I'm not sure but I think Chantelle's planning to go.

    It'd be fun to have you join the party ... we're planning to spend the week at Marianna ...

    Lynn, you will always be the Borg Queen. Queens are not defined by what they wear or what they dive, but rather by who they are!:eyebrow:

    Ya'll should plan for Springfest. :)

    I might decide to wander down that way and join you for a dive or two as well.
