Most importantly, do not buy things on impulse and make sure you know exactly what you need before you bring it all home. This warning is only for those that are impulse buyers; if you know what you need, go get it right now. Diving fins, for example, can be very diverse depending upon what area of the water you will be in and how deep you will go. You will want a different fin design if you are cave diving as opposed to open water diving. Underwater photography will sometimes require you to stop and turn in strange abrupt ways, which will require fins that can help you accomplish this. Whatever dive you may be going on, and whatever purpose it may entail, has a direct effect on the equipment that you use. Fins that are manufactured today are the results of decades of trial and error, along with provocative thoughts that have come to life. If you are looking for a pair of fins for leisure, it will cost you $75 to $100; professional fins can range all the way up to 1000 bucks because of their high tech design. Another thing you should notice right away, even at a glance, is that there are many bizarre and unusual designs with diving fins. If you are planning to dive in caves, you can get fins that are long and have a long slit in them. Large fins such as these are designed in this way provide maximum speed and acceleration for all of those that use them. Even more different, power fins do the same, yet are able to sustain speed and give you much more power while underwater. A very well known component of scuba diving are the air tanks that provide oxygen or air to the divers as they swim. They are typically constructed of steel or aluminum, and you can see them in all kinds of sizes. As you can guess, there are different diving scenarios and depths for a wide variety of reasons. For the most part, cylinders that are made of diverse materials are usually the ones that can supply the most air. There are differences between cylinder designations used in the US and Europe. In the United States, for example, when the cylinder has 1 Atm of pressure within it, it is considered full. The same cylinder in Europe would be measured in terms of the volume of air inside. Scuba divers also use weights so they can achieve optimal buoyancy in the water. It is important to note that you can add as much as 30 pounds of weight to your body to find balance in the water. You can actually find the proper level of buoyancy by considering how much air is in the tanks and how much weight will be needed to offset that amount. There is some skill involved with attaining the desired level of buoyancy which is neutral to just negative. Years ago, divers were mandated to wear solid blocks of lead on their belts. Improvements have been made over the years so that nylon lead shot bags are used instead. It is possible to replace the old-fashioned weighted bags with nylon bags that can do the same trick. When looking at all of this advanced equipment, it is clear that some of this scuba gear is very beneficial. Excellent advances have been made with technology and design to make this type of dive gear available. It is important that you spend money on the most reliable model, otherwise

you may end up with a piece of junk that will do you no good and put you at potential risk. For more info on great scuba diving gear take a look at this post at and discover more about some of the most effective scuba diving equipment today.
