    haha yeah, well if ya look at it, the bc has to only compensate for the buoyancy change in gas, and the loss of buoyancy in your exposure suit......some also want it to float their gear on the surface.

    so if you do that simple math, you can very quickly find the proper size wing. 30lbs is more then enough for pretty well all single tank diving

    How about a corset that's also a tool belt?

    (I made the corset; the owner wore it to build the Man at Burning Man.)

    Anyway, yes, 31 pounds of lift would be plenty for me in Monterey. Does anyone have a sense of how easy or difficult it is to adjust the Zena in 5mm gloves?

    hi, i'm also a newbie still looking for a new back inflate BC. i am very interested with the zeagle ranger jr, especially because of the price. and i'm a small diver. my weight is around 41-43 kg.

    according to the measurement, the hips fits me. but the shoulder is too small since their range is 12 to 15 inches while mine is 18 inches.

    anyway my question is, is it possible to customize the shoulder up to 18 inches for zeagle ranger junior? (since i heard that zeagle could have customization for some of their products)

    thanks

    Call the guys at Scuba Toys with your measurements. They'll be able to custom design a BC just for you by mixing and matching. Or since you're in Indonesia, send Joe or Larry at private message and ask them for help.
    ScubaToys and Zeagle....it just doesn't get better than that!

    Hi there. Larry will get back to you I'm sure. But I will say, the Zeagle modular system has no limitations of which I am aware. Larry and Joe have helped me put together some interesting rigs.
