    Halcyon SS plate with Pioneer wing.

    The guys with the SO PSD team use Halcyon's SS plate with the Eclipse wing or ScubaPro's SS with the X-Tek, both 40# wing and cinch.

    Most of us use dive with ST100 tanks and a couple still have AL80s.

    Is nobody diving one of those lower priced SS BPs (usually mid to high $70s) from DGX or Piranha?
    Anything wrong, or otherwise to consider with those?

    My mistake, it's a torus 17.

    The 30 pound wing I have is wider and I think squarer than the new ones, and has a nylon strap that goes through the cambands and then fastens using a nylon quick-release buckle. It's not as convenient as the newer arrangement where there are separate windows for the upper and lower cambands.
