    We did beach dives not boat dives so we really never got deep. Adjusting for buoyancy was a little tough because I never got deeper then 40 feet and I normally dive deeper then that. I did have some Issues adjusting nothing major. I dove with just a rash guard and have a admit I was a little cold. A 3mm wetsuit would've been better.

    Best regards,

    I forgot to mention on the first dive I dove with 6 pounds of lead and was way overweighted. On the second dive i took out 4 pounds and dove with 2 pounds of lead and could have dove with no weight at all with just a rash guard. The steel tanks do the job. This is one of the things I really like about the rEvo, it's negatively buoyant. Since I only dive in cold water I was I little off weight wise.
