A good question ? We are asked this question again and again at dismantling, trade fairs or on the service telephone.
What price do I have to pay to get good reliable diving equipment?
Counter question - What are you willing to spend? Where do you want to dive with your diving equipment? How often do you plan to dive ? Above all, how would you like to dive? A consultation - a good consultation should answer all these questions.
The price of good diving equipment can vary greatly. You can get a simple but good travel wing for around €660.00. It should be very light and take up little space in your luggage. In addition, it must be very stable in order to be able to access it without restriction on vacation - far away from home. Seams that open or burst under stress are unacceptable.
