Well I finally ordered my gear.... Joe took about an hour over the phone and email helping me figure out what I wanted....

I got:
Zeagle Brigade
Aeris Atmos Reg
Viper Octo
Oceanic VEO 100


Best price I have seen online and at the LDS

Thanks Joe

Nice package. I used the Zeagle Brigade in OW; had I not gone the BP/W route, I would have gone with the Brigade. I also use the Atmos reg; works well in conditions as low as 46-degree temp; I've not gone lower, so I don't know beyond that.

That said, you may want to make a quick call and see if you can exchange the Veo 100 for the Veo 250. More features, including Nitrox. It will cost a bit more. Add the download cable (fits either Veo 100 or 250).

Did you request the 10% forum discount?

Finally, just send Joe your credit card number and first born. It's just easier, less painful that way.

WELL LUCKILY I DONT HAVE ANY CHILDREN YET OR I PROBABLY WOULDNT BE ABLE TO AFFORD THIS STUFF... NO WORRIES JOE HAS MY CC # STORED... SINCE THIS IS MORE A BEGINNER SET I WASNT TO WORRIED ABOUT THE COMPUTER HAVING NITROX CAPABILITY BUT IN THE FUTURE I DO PLAN ON UPGRADING... I WAS MORE WORRIED ABOUT GETTING A GOOD BC THAT WILL LAST A WHILE AND UPGRADING THE REST SLOWLY... WE WILL SEE HOW THAT GOES... THE PRES NEEDS TO GIVE A STIMULUS CHECK FOR DIVERS THAT WOULD HELP.:smiley36:

I never should have taken the "Evelyn Woods" class.

I was scanning the recent posts and I read "Joe got my package.".

LOL ... Tim - get your mind out of the gutter!! :smilie39::smilie39:

I actually placed an order yesterday afternoon with Joe's wife!! Super sweet lady!! I had received the e-mail from the other day with the 'call me' specials ... so I just had to call! Can't beat the closeouts on the Henderson Hyperstretch suits .. got a full, 3 mil (with the strange pod case) for a whopping $198!! What a steal! Anyway ... I walk into the office after lunch - and there's my package!! I swear I don't know how they get them delivered so fast! :smiley20:

One of the things that impresses me the most, is how fast the items arrive. Besides the fact that they have everything under the sun in stock! A good friend of mine lives very close to them. If I did I believe I'd be in the poor house right now. It's a little easier to be more reserved when shopping online versus having all of the goodies sitting there right before your eyes.:smiley29:

I think thats a good package Dan, I use a Brigade as well and really like it.
The VEO 100 is not nitrox? I agree I would see if maybe you can upgrade.

Yeah, ST is a class act for sure.

I picked up a 7mm Henderson InstaDry for around $150, and it came with a case of all things! :smiley2: It's a backup for my Drysuit, and the taggers remain on after one trip. Backups are a good thing on a live aboard, and in general.

I agree, upgrade to Nitrox if you have any aspiration of Max BT, nitrox makes a difference. Aeris no longer makes an air only computer based on their website.

Concerning ScunaToys fast delivery, I've always found them to be the fastest. Usually takes just a few minutes. I walk to the ScubaToys store counter with my items and hand the credit card to the sales rep. A couple minutes later, he hands me the merchandise. That's fast, same-day, same-hour delivery.

My first time buy with Scubatoys went very well. Delivery was fast and I got what I ordered Reef Rider Bc and Aeris Xr1. The computer was used got a great deal on it. I have been diving for years and have never used Nitrox. I do plan to take the course at some point but the computer was a great deal and I will need it here in a few months for Coz. Besides I have a gf that just got certified so she can take all my hand me downs.

The merchandise was her within days and looks great thanks guys
