Dive Gear links

Post by sparky » Sun Feb 19, 2006 11:35 pm

OK Gang lets start shareing our Gear links.
I know I for one am still looking for the best place to buy my gear from doubles to lights and Camra. So I was thinking with the tons and tons of infermation out there maybe we could pull rescorses and come up with a list of good places to look.

a couple of my sites I check and reraly like are
http://www.ikelite.com/

http://www.divetank.com/

I agree Dave I always try to use a LDS first but its nice to beable to do a little resurch and price compareing you know.


And I am with out a LDS here on the coast our LDS went out of business about 2 years a go now nearest shop to me is in Hillsboro.

so I try to be a little smarter as to what I buy as I have to drive a good way to get my gear now.

Slight problem there
#1 i am only open water certified have over 130 dives but only hold a Open Water Cert ( I know I realy should take some classes )

#2 Fundage to be frank Im to broke to even think of that

#3 not enough divers that are as active as me

but i do have a good spot in mind and im thinking in a couple years when I make my first million $$$$ I might try it

Head out to the local tyre shops, they have tons of old lead, you know those small bites that are attached to tire rims to get them balanced. I guess they just let you to take them for free since it's junk.

But since another mans junk is another mans treasure, so then just melt them and make some weights, you can even make those DIR ones. ;)
