Diving magazines what do you read

Almost every activity has a publication to go with it motorcross, auto racing, etc. So I googled scuba magazines and came up with a long list but from what I saw a lot seemed to be more travel motivated and less about actually diving. So what publications are out there that cater more to the sport and its equipment? What do you read?

[Choose #1] You’re right, there is a lot of reading material on travel as well as expensive gear. Would be nice to find something for the common man so to speak. Luckily there’s a forum on this website. Always a good read ;)
