For another input to your decision process: -Find out just what a DM actually does. Several folks I know looked at the DM certificate as a status thingy. They were really disappointed when they discovered that it is anything but. -Do you really want to be a DM, or later, an Instructor? Several peopl...

One more vote for Turtles! I found my old Blades to be excellent fins; until....I went to doubles. Then they just unloaded thrust to fast. So, I spent a lot of time churning and not a lot of time going. Made me real tired. Then I had two very nice folks let me try Turtles. They are a little bit comp...

For what it is worth: The owner of one of our dive shops is really down on the glue on lenses. His criticism ranges from the lenses falling off, to them distorting the mask lense, to being difficult to get in the correct postion for the user, to their being a focal point for gunk, to voiding the mas...
