    Need BC Suggestions - What's Up With The Zeagle Scout?

    I have a good problem and a bad problem...

    The good problem is that I own a vintage Dacor Nautica BC that needs replacement. (I also received 2 ST gift cards for Christmas to help me with my BC woes.)

    The bad problem (and the problem I need help with) is that I had my heart set on a Zeagle Scout and now I can no longer find it on the ST web site to order. Is ST no longer carrying the Scout? If so, does anyone have a suggestion on a similar model? My diving is generaly limited to shallow quarries here in Indiana or warm water in Florida/Caribbean. I generally only like to dive places where I can get by with wearing a shorty or a 2/3mm suit so I don't need a huge amount of lift and massive amounts of weight. I generally wear a belt for my ditchable weight so high tech weight integration isn't really a "must have" for me. Does anyone have any suggestions (or better yet, an answer about the Scout?)

    Give 'em a call and ask, that's why they have a toll-free number.....
    Some people are like a Slinky, not really good for anything but they do make you smile when you push them down stairs.

    I'll bet they will still get one for you. I bought one this summer from ST and they even swapped out the 20# bladder for a 35#. (Had to pay the difference of course.)

    Wonder why they no longer have it on their website... it was there before Jan. 1st! I bet they can still order it for you since they're zeagle dealers.

    I don't remember ST being so expensive. Several years ago I got the ranger for that price. But then I bought a package.. Call ST.. Maybe then can recommend a similar/superior product

    Yes, that is pretty sad - I know it was just $249 there days ago - they'll gladly price match - but its the diea behind it
