    Hi all,

    I only really dive sidemount now.

    Looking at buying some new cylinders and torn between Faber 7lts and the Euro 8.5lts. I can't find much, or anything to suggest what the shift is in tank buoyancy as they are breathed down.

    Any input would be pretty well welcomed.

    Cheers all

    Depends how far you breath them down. I would work on about 4kg for 2*8.5l cylinders full of air/nitrox.

    The make of cylinders is irrelevant, it's the volume and pressure that's important.

    I have try these tanks ( Eurocylinders concave) as doubles and are heavy , much more than 12's.

    Use https://henrik.synth.no/scuba/tanks.html

    8,5 is -1.1/-3.5 kg (empty / full ) and 12 is -0.6/-4.0 kg (empty / full ) both Eurocylinders

    Faber have so many different weight as they have cylinders ;) ( thanks God I have switched them )

    But if you are tall they dive very nice as doubles ( heavy at base) , but for sidemount I'm not so sure
