Hey bro, went diving 2 weeks ago in pompano, did a reef 60ft then went to the drop off. I was invited on a boat with some people I met on divebuddy.com one of the guys I dove with was a tech diver he has gone down 425ft. Diving with these guys I was running out of air before they did, so this is why I need back up. If you are up for a dive I could ask if you can join us.

You could just go for a dedicated pony first stage in the form of a Zeagle Razor. With the forum discount they are ~$130. That is the direction I think I'm going to go.

The discount is 10 %.
What size tank are you diving ?
Before going pony, I would look at going larger on the back gas.
Using a pony to extend your dive is not the way to extend the dive.
How is your sac rate ? You will find working on your trim will get you a better sac rate, and the more you dive the better it will get also.
I dive a pony when I dive singles, but for me the pony is there if something were to go wrong.

Yes your right I would like to have it just in case of a problem not to extened my bottem time, to do my safety stop if some thing went wrong.

At 60 FT I get about 35-40 min hunting for lobster.:smiley29:
