    This may seem like a dumb question... I found a used xDeep Stealth 2.0 Tec for sale, but when I go to buy it how can I tell if it is indeed a Tec and not a Rec? They both look similar to me; I would imagine the difference would be apparent if they were side by side, but I won't have that opportunity.

    Hard to tell without inflating the wing and having them side by side to compare.

    Maybe there's a tag on the bladder that says lift?

    Aren't the rec supplied with a different harness normally? (not seen one, but seen many tecs). I was under the impression that the rec version had adjustable QR, whereas the Tec harness was simple webbing.

    @DevonDiver you can swap the wings around. Small divers might prefer the rec wing while not wanting a fancy harness.

    I'm not sure if anyone dropped the measurements somewhere... Might want to ask on the Stealth 2.0 sidemount facebook group.

    @Patoux01 I put the question up on the Facebook page.
    I found this video on YouTube

    The TEC diffinatly looks wider (tip to tip) than the REC, can anyone with a TEC tell me what they measure?
    Here's a photo of the one I have; tip to tip it measures about 26.5 inches... TEC or REC?

    Hi, I own the REC wing and it's about 22 inches wide. So unless my mesuring tape is awfully wrong, I guess that's the TEC one on the picture.

    And yes, I confirm, the harnesses can be swapped around. I'm using my REC wing with the TEC harness (simple webbing).
