Im going to attend Mels class and then make my decision.....From the many recommendations I have been given, Im leaning toward the rEvo Standard II, the Kiss Classic, or The Meg.....

BTW... Any of you Meg divers out there.. Laura, Josh, John, Greg........anyone else... I have heard that the Meg is great for WOB, and buoyancy properties, but can be restrictive with your movements due to the lungs being on your chest and shoulders, and kind of in the way.... have any of you found this to be true, or not so true? Any comparisons to the rEvo, or Kiss you might have??

Thanks for the info....

one thing being "very well off" will never buy you is modesty or tact.

Not sure why it's a slap in the face. When he was your age I bet he didn't have 2 nickels to rub together. He's worked for everything he has. I'm sure that if you apply yourself you'll be able to afford the toys when you're old like him. (Ah, see how I kept this post balanced. LOL)

I agree with Dashrynn here. It does not matter how Jaksonbrown earned his money or what his background is. His post is merely to flaunt his wealth and attempt to feel superior to anyone who can not afford to live his lifestyle. It is in extremely poor taste to do this in public.

"Old like him" unless his age on his profile is wrong, he ain't old. If he is a whole bunch of us need to be just a little offended.
