What is the weight of a AL. 120 tank? Full and empty.

Is there such a beast? Literally, if it existed, itd be a BEAST.

Here's a link to a fairly good chart of tanks but notice no such AL 120.

Perhaps a steel 120?

The only 120s I have seen are steel. An aluminum 100 is the biggest aluminum tank I am familiar with. They are big unweildy beasts that have poor bouyancy characteristics. I have a few of them I bought years ago but never use them since I got steel 100s.

Ditto. Got one before I knew better.

Anyone want an AL 100 for a decent price from NO. VA?

No kidding, you mean there's a use for them? I've got a buddy who's been trying to unload a set for some time now.

There are different types of steel 120s with *huge* differences in buoyancy, so make sure you lookup the exact tank you are considering using.

I own Faber FX-120s which are about 6 pounds lighter than some other 120s that I've used. IIRC, the Faber FX is about the same as the Worthington 3442psi model.
