      Solid work gents.

      Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!

        I'm betting it's the D-Star 200. Only cause I know he has it with him.

            Absolutely! Intend to wear it in the open water around here, so Maryland coast where the water temp is a balmy 60 some at best

              I have worn a 6mm suit back in the day in 40 deg water so you'll be just fine. Just remember your weight will have to compensate for both the suit, and your tank getting empty - aluminum tanks want to float as they get progressively empty.

                Lots to learn! Thank =fully I have a bit of time before I get to open water. Looking forward to starting on pool (heated) work in about 2-3 months

                  I'd love to have the cash to get into diving for fun. I'd set up a Halcyon stainless steel back plate with a double tank - all piped into my Kirby Morgan helmet. I could really have some fun with that!

                    Kind of like this? But then pick out something to connect it up to.

                      Yep, we spoke about this before a while back Vince. I think I'd put a couple of steel cylinders on a steel Halcyon wing and do a custom configuration to my helmet. You're running Poseidon regulators aren't you if I remember correctly?

                        Yes I run Poseidon Cyklons on my recreational doubles rig, and A Scubapro Full face mask at work on single tanks.

                          Tim is correct. I took the D-Star, and two KonTikis with me. I find the D-Star very easy to read in the water.
