    Dead Broke Tx Diver

    Hey Guys! I just wanted to say hello and a big thanks to Scuba Toys. I am lucky enough to work right around the corner from these guys. I am still new to diving and I was finally able to convice "Her" that I needed to get my own gear. I called Todd up on the phone and went with the Zeagle Brigade package with a few add ons. (comfort swival and a few other goodies) Todd let me know that they didnt have my size and offered me the Hollis HD100. it is a tighter wing and fits really well. very easy to control while in the water. I had to add this because my price stayed the same. I got a $550 dollar bcd for 400 bucks. I am telling you these guys are the best. I called it in, Dropped off another reg at lunch, and showed back up at 3:30 pm and jumped in the pool. These guys were great and i can't say enough for the whole group down there. Yall keep up the good work and i am sure you can keep me a dead broke diver. All I need is the $8 to refill my tank! ( Sorry for the spelling errors )

    Welcome to here and diving! Broke is what we all are when chasing the dream of underwater exploration! You have spent the money now it is cheap. Get "Her" into diving and the fund allocations may be easier(if they are available) But by all means... Dive away!
    Congrats!
    PS I am jealous that my LDS is just around the corner from you

    Welcome to our happy little family. ScubaToys is a 20-minute drive from my house. Be prepared that there are many on this forum who envy those of us who live close to ST. Haters be hatin'...

    Vercingetorix is right; when they envy and hate start, just do like I do and stick out your tongue at'em.....

    You may be broke, but if you tried that at most LDS's you'd have money but no gear
