I work in S-dale, and could use a couple 2lbers. I can pick the rest up and distribute them out to others as long as they promised to get them recertified.

Tec lead is certified beyond 130ft. Rec lead isnt.

Sheesh, everyone knows that...

Tec lead uses VPM-B deco model and I am pretty sure are sewn in black fabric rather than all those fancy colors.

What the heck would rec diving vs Tech diving care about the lead? It's bits of incompressible metal sewn up in cloth bags - nothing that would change with depth or time... Curiousity is killin' this cat!

Sorry Doc, this is rec lead not tech lead. My fault for not being specific. I’ve heard of people who bootleg jailbreak lead to go from rec to tech. But I can not publicly confirm or deny that it has been done.

How much do you think it would cost to have that Lead serviced by a dive shop....? I'd like to use it on some of my technical Dives but I want to make sure that lead safe to go Deep ...

Done diving for now, never say never. Most of my gear is sold, I stumbled across some old lead. Not sure if it still works, you are advised to get it checked by a professional shop before using it. All soft bags of lead, four 3 pounders, two 2 pounders and two 5 pounders. All free, you gotta come pick them up, I live in Bremerton. Shoot me an email if you want to drive here and pick it up. You gotta take it all not going to separate it giving it away as a lot.
