    Any aqualung axiom Bcd owners out there?

    I'm considering buying a weight integrated BCD. I've been diving for about eleven years, with a soft weight belt around my waist.

    I'm thinking about buying a new Bcd.

    There is nothing wrong with my current Bcd, it's just I'm tired of the weight belt. I've tried the Ranger and Brigade, and I'm not that crazy about them.

    I'm also looking at the Oceanic Bcd.

    Anybody out there have the axiom?

    I rented one a few weeks ago, tried it on two dives. It dove very well. Seems a bit bulky, but I'm not used to weight integrated.

    Any one else have one? Share your experience.

    Haven't had either of the above, but dove a Black Diamond for many years, the one problem with all weight integrated is the pockets, very expensive if you drop one, and you undoubtedly will! The other problem can be placement of weights to get your trim right and also to have you sitting comfortably at the surface. My suggestion would be to try a BPW first before you make a decision, far more streamlined and adaptable to future changes.
    Any dive you survive is a good dive
