Well, I did 2 dives today at Portage Quarry, and I must say that after 4 dives with the new steel 100, I am back to the comfort level I was with the Aluminum 80. My nuteral boyance was perfect, I did a suspended deco stop at 15 feet and never moved except the up and down from breathing. My surfacing was great (the computer never got out of the green) and I must say that it was one of the most enjoyable dives this season. I got my nuteral boyance to the point that I suspended myself about 1 to 2 feet from the bottom and got to do the thing I love most. Flip over rocks and feed the bass the crayfish. Nothing is better than holding onto a rock and watching a bass position itself to grab up anything that he sees. The other part of the dive that was enjoyable was seeing the other divers with 20lbs of weight and I dove with nothing.

are you telling me the steel tank weighs enough that you dont need weights?
