I used to use the KT rollers and again to be honest, found them ok but not necessary if the harness was setup properly. I have a set spare if you want to have them to try out...?
    When I put a backplate on in the New Year, I'd definitely like to take you up on that offer. Obviously a beer in it for you for the trouble!

    FWIW, one of my regular dive buddies used a plastic DR backplate with BMCL, the stock wing, and the tech/travel canister, and did not use either a spacer or make cutouts in his backplate.

    I just did what Jim did, put spacers between the unit and the lungs. Otherwise I have had zero issues with it.

    I have found that normal BP (without curtout and fancy stuff) is perfectly Ok with BMCL. There is plenty of room for the lungs to expand. Yes, a one piece harness also works.

    My suggestion go with a standrd BP and your favourite OPH (love the new acronym!) and you'll find after a bit of adjustment you'll be fine. Depending on whose BMCLs you use (I used home made ones using a paid of medium AP Cls), I made sure the CLs were secured to the waist belt or therabouts(bottom of BP is fine too) and ajdusted them snugly after unit was donned. I got pictsif you want some.

    Incidentl, I originally went with the smancy fancy BPs (at great cost i might add) and founf them completely unnecessary. But if you really really want one, I have one with pockets for the CL that coul;d fall of the back of a truck for correct spondulicks....(pics available)
