    Hello from Beaufort, NC USA

    Soon to be a new RB diver. After many years of considering it I'm looking to make the jump later this year. Here to gather opinions and advice and have all but decided on going the Dive rite Optima route with backmount CL and Shearwater electronics unless someone talks me out of that route. In North Carolina and do a fair bit of wreck diving, inshore diving, wreck hunting, and some spearing and lobstering.

    I think that's an excellent choice. I owned one of the first Optima FX's and it's nothing like the current version. I wish they would actually rename the rig to reflect this. I've never dealt with a better company than Dive Rite. It seems like Dive Rite markets heavily to the cave community, so I think that unit gets overlooked often outside of that community.

    Good Luck,
    Matt

    You won't regret the O2ptima. You will love diving a CCR in NC...same dive sites, no rush.
