I've got an E8-130 and like it, but the 8" diameter doesn't fit normal tank racks. That and the fact that I bounce back and forth between that tank and an AL80 so I'm constantly readjusting the tank band, so I was thinking of some E7-120s. This tank is a little taller and was wondering if this extra length was very noticable.
Thanks,
David

Yes, you can notice the difference in length. If you are 6ft or taller you should have no problem with one, though.

I like the 119's. 8" diameter can be trouble on some boats but that's what budgie cords are for.

The 120 is taller and you will notice it. Dive one and see how you like it. As stated above if your tall you should be ok.

I'm 6'2", so some similar sized divers may have tried these.

I am 5' 11" and I dive with x7-120's. No problem.

I'm 5'11" 1/2 and same thing! The x7 120s are only 2 inches taller than a AL 80.

I'm 5'10" and I like my 104's (think 130's). I had a 120 a while back but I found the length irriating.

Try one and see what you like.

So from our small sample the cut-off is somewhere around 5-11". The real question is probably how long your torso is instead of how tall you are. Trying one is a good suggestion.

Yup, I've seen shorter divers use them and taller divers use them. I've got a buddy that's about 5'6" and has no problems with them, and I at 6' have no problems with them. But the torso on both of us accommodate them.

another 5'11" here and I have no problems with mine. Before mine were doubled up my buddy dove them who is about 5'8" (I think) and he had no problems with them either...

I am 5' 11" and don't like them. It's really something you should try.

I'm 5' 10" and the 120 little tall for me my 8" diameter 119s are perfect.

I'm in between the above two posters and 120s work just fine for me.
