    Carbon Tanks 2L v 3L

    Hey people,

    How many of you are using Carbon tanks with your machines?

    Most likely this is a personal choice, but thought I'd reach out for some opinions anyway.

    Out here in UAE/Oman we dive 10 months a year, of that time, about 8 months of that I dive dry, using my 3L steels.
    I have a set of the 2L Carbon tanks that came with my rEvo that have seen maybe half a dozen dives this year.

    A good option to have, but something that doesn't see much use.

    Picked up a set of 3L Carbon tanks from a friend that was moving.

    Can't justify having them both. And trying to decide wheather to Keep the 2L or the 3L?

    (More often then not, we dive a 70m wreck and or a 30m wreck, with 120-180min run times).

    At the moment, thinking that the extra size does nothing but help, if I were diving wet, was at depth, and needed a dil flush for some reason. +1 for the 3L set.

    Any thoughts?

    I have both the 2 L carbons and a 1.5L set, by far the best are the 1.5 L for tropical diving and they trim beautiful when using a sharkskin 2 mm suit, normally get about 3 hours out of the 1.5 depending on the dive conditions and exertion.

    Definitely great on the rEvo! It's not only the carbon Fiber tank but also the lighter valve. That combination will give you a much better trim. I dive with CF pretty much anywhere (I am even traveling with them) and any rebreather.
