    The rest of my gear will be following too as I just can't give it the time it needs. Still on the plus side, erm... Not sure there is one actually!

    Really sorry to hear that. I keep looking at them with increasing envy. Maybe one day...

    Suit inflate has gone, 7 is spoken for but I do have an ali80 if that's any good? I'll get my finger out at some point and do a list I guess... Just need to find the time lol
    I have various dsmbs, SP regs (1st and 2nds), a monstrous halcyon explorer (I think) 70lb wing and loads more :)

    Hi Joe, its of test now as it was only used for bailout., i bought it new and it never even made it into the sea! It's a luxfer in brushed Ali finish with stage rigging kit on it. Filled with 21/35 at the moment. I was thinking £110 for it but sending it would be a mare so would need collecting from Hastings...
