    Hi Matt!

    Thinking about using johnnyair to buy bike parts. How much extra do they usually charge? No diving right now here in Dumaguete thanks to "Queenie", weather ok in Malapascua?

    Have you checked Aquamundo's BP/W out? A co-worker got the complete set for 14k, brand new. I'm using an Aquamundo wing also (Q-Tec II), 300+ dives and no hiccups. Yet.

    If you are going to replace then go to a bp/w or a bcd with rear inflation.

    Try Philtech. Their Defiant line of products are ok - value for money IF you catch their sale which should happen just before xmas.

    I'm not sure of the exact way they calculate it Marco - best email them and I'm sure they can explain their pricing.

    Say hi to everyone from me!

    Have a co-worker whose Defiant wing started fraying around the opening for its inflator hose. Did not affect its performance but it didn't look too pretty. That was a while ago though (2011), so maybe Defiant has corrected this problem already...
