    yeah, actually i bought something that came highly recommended on scubaboard (DSS single tank rig with LCD 30 - dss torus wings hadn't been invented yet), and then went through bunch of gear as part of the 'think through' before arriving at my current setup, which is still a work in progress.

    i kept the plate (and bought extra weight plates for it and a second lighter plate by same manufacturer), but i switched to donut wings, and even within donuts, I discovered the hard way that I was better suited for the more donutty-shaped donuts, as opposed to 360 degree wings that are more triangular, or wider at the rear (rear biased).

    The quick-release is just for convenience. yeah, it's a potential failure point (per DIR thinking), but i don't like to wiggle out the pure hog harness in doubles and a drysuit on a shaky boat.

    I'm still renting because I can't decide what to buy!

    So many choices...

    I am not sure if I already replied since I've been waiting for my BC for over a month! In any event, my LDS finally got my Apeks WTX harness and WTX3 wing. Well, the wing is a sample until the real deal show up.

    I run the Zeagle ranger LTD because it is built very well and it is also what my rescue dive team uses.

    Mares Morphos Pro (MRS Integrated weights, and AirTrim).

    Haven't used it yet, and I'm a little wary of the AirTrim system, but all the reviews I read were great and I found it for cheap on clearance sale, so we'll see...
