Hey I have a chance to get several 2 year old Luxfer AL-80 for around 150
I can get a new Catalina for the same-
Any opinion on which I should go for?

Thanks
Gary

The only benifit i find to luxfer over catalina is the way they trim out. Cats seem to be a bit rear-end heavy. However this only comes into play for me if im carrying a stage bottle. Id prefer the Lux as a stage as its boyancy characteristics are more suited for that then a cat. But for back gas, either for me is fine.

In this case, if the new cats are the same price as the used Luxs, id likely buy a couple new cats.

I'd go with the new ones, regardless of which brand.

$150 for a used Al80 seems high to me.

I agree, and you will be about another 20 in for a viz on the used ones.
