    I got my stimulus check, so I used it to stimulate my local economy at my LDS and ordered a singles wing.

    Hi James, I got that part, but why buy a new BCD? He already has an evolve which requires a back plate. Could he use the 40? meh, it wouldn't be ideal considering he still needs the adapter—so with that said, picking up a 28-30lbs single tank wing and adapter would be the answer to his situation.

    Have the adapter also, I just switched to doubles even for shore diving so I ditched my singles wing. But hey in three weeks I'll have a single wing again....... I'm starting a new group SDA (scuba divers anomous) I think most in this forum should join.

    Having seen @happy-diver post in the past, i figured he was advocating adding clips to the wing the OP has (a $3 solution) and using the Zeagle as an example of the method.... However, neither of us are inside Happy's head (I hope) so we can only guess, lol.
    I don't think he was trolling... I think he was offering a solution.

    Very cool, yeah grab a custom 30lb'er from halcyon and you're good to go. I'd also recommend Light Monkey wings. Cheers!

    Lets ask him for calcification,@happy-diver, how would purchasing a new Zeagle BCD and copying what you have rigged for a chest-mounted rebreather help OP with his situation needing a smaller-sized wing and backplate set-up for single tank diving?

    Halycon will match my doubles wing.

    Still not sure if it's a purple addiction or a dive addiction, maybe both. I know they are expensive but I'm supporting an American manufacturer and a local shop this way.

    That looks badass. I'm a huge fan of hot pink but I'm not sure if I'm ready to do a full wing yet. Lol. I do have all my tackling done in hot pink though.
