    Hi all,

    I just discoverd that my Stinger has a scratch on the glass plate. It's not too deep, but I wonder if it influences the strength of the glass during a deep dive. Should I let it be serviced?

    Don't be concerned. First off, it's not "glass", it's probably lexan; secondly, it will flex and besides, the scratch, even though very visible, is probably so shallow that, for all practical purposes, it has no effect upon the integretity of the part.

    To keep my computer lens from being scratched up I cover it with a piece of wide, thick cellophane tape. When it gets a bit scratched, I peel it off and replace it with another piece.
