Rich's Twin 50's... With Decals!
- My diving buddy Rich has put together a couple of sets of brand new aluminum 50s... He skipped over the entire SLC issue and bought new tanks. But like a lot of us, he mixes the old with the new. So the first set (left) was treated to a modern set of tank bands until it was discovered that the bands put the tanks too wide for a vintage twin tank manifold with the valve in the middle. So, he went with vintage bands and then set them up to bolt onto his modern BCD vest/harness.
- So now he had a set of modern bands with no tanks... "Gotta do something with those bands"... We scored a brand new ScubaPro twin tank manifold with center valve and auxiliary valve plus it is adjustable for width. So, a couple new 50s later, he has this 2nd beautiful set of Twin 50s (right)... Even customized the bands with a ScubaPro logo.
- Then, along comes Ron the Sheriffdiver with the perfect tank decals for an aluminum tank double hose diver....
