    Hey all

    Im new to the forums but have been in the industry for a few years, ive had some back trauma over the years so i have switch from back mount to side mount. At this time i have been racking up single (Monkey) tank dives on my basterdized Dive rite harness with a travel wing if done me well so far. I am looking to step away from the big branded gear and get into bed with Scuba Force.

    So my questions

    Anyone used the new Scuba Force Blade ?

    Anyone using their SM Regs ?

    Before anyone says anything i have also dived with 2 tanks but with what diving i do i prefer just using a single tank.

    Thanks in advance

    Only have experience with their SF2 and drysuits:
    The SF2 is a well thought out ECCR clone of the RB80, that unfortunatly has all the build quality of someone working in a garage with big hand tools. In other words, I really don't like mine.
    Years ago we used to say that Scubaforce (Horst Dederichs) was incapable of ever producing the same drysuit twice, each and every one was different than anything they had ever produced before.
    Horst is a skilled salesman who can sell sand in Saudi Arabia and refridgerators to the eskimos, but has a major problem telling the truth to a customer. I avoid him like the plague.
    On the other hand, Scubaforce does a good job quickly shipping new dive gear that they sell on Ebay, no gripes at all.
    Haven't heard anything bad about their regs, but it might be a good idea to stockpile rebuild kits that you buy when you buy the regs, it's possible that, as with their drysuits from day to day, things change, and the new parts no longer fit on the old regs.
    It's really hard to screw up a wing with backplate and straps, so I'm sure that you will end up being very happy with the SF Blade, in whatever configuration you buy it.
