Hi everyone, Well, I finally found a mask! Stopped in at Leisure Pro today, over in Manhattan. I don’t know why I haven’t gone their sooner. ( only 30 min. away ) I bought almost all of my equipment from them online. Great prices!! 


I bought the XS scuba M-line Z Duo. It has a purge and it has great down vision. I can see my waist line. Which being a new diver is great when doing and undoing the releases and I’m not grabbing my snorkel instead of my BC inflator. I’m so excited!! LOL. Thanks to everyone who responded with your opinions and advice! Very much appreciated


Greg- I left them a DiveBuddy sticker!! The manager wasn’t there at the time but I’m sure they’ll put it up. Maureen

Cool Maureen. Let us know how it works out for you after you dive with it.
As far as being able to see your waist line, some of us older gentlemen have no problem seeing our waistlines even without downward vision in our masks. ;)

Thanks man. I appreciate anyone that spreads the word about our scuba community.

Hi.. I bought same type mask last year, found that the purge valve was touching bottom of my nose while diving and was uncomfortable.. I hope yours fits better. I know lots of divers hate purge, just something else to go wrong and all, but I am not one of those people.


 I have since bought a real nice ($$$) mask with no purge and love it.
