  • So 32lbs is 6 mounting holes?32lbs for 260 but 23lbs for 290. Makes more sense to get the 32lbs right? Haha

  • 32 or 23lb I doubt will make any real difference with drag.  In any case, size of the wing is to match tank, not size of your body.  Therefore I guess its safe to choose which ever you like. :)
    So they call it a 'FACT' coz someone made some statements on a 'FACT SHEET'? hummm...

  • 23 might be a little small if you're 70kg and above and use lots of weights.. and if you have a camera with strobes and all it might be a little small too. also not sure if in a rescue situation it would provide sufficient buoyancy.

    i think 30+ is a safe size but that's just me. I have a 40lb wing. haha

    I have a huge camera and as it should be is it pretty much neutral under water, so no big impact on the bladder size.I think a typical Inon has by itself 40 grams of neg boyancy... But I agree, i have 32lbs and don't want it any smaller. (but then again am I not exactly 70 kg either...)
