Great BC, BUT

I bought this and several other products from Leisure Pro and I could not be happier with their service. Aaron is the man to call on the phone. I just returned from Roatan and did 11 dives with this BC. Integrated weights never fell out, easy to dump air, no problems. Now the but. I dove at Tyrll's and when they saw my Sherwood Avid BC they asked me to come into the store room where they kept all the equipment. He pulled out a 3 year old Sherwood Avid BC.

Bad product, bad service!! Buyer beware!!! Do not buy Sherwood!!

By

from North Port, FL, US

This bc fell apart after only 12 logged dives. Tank strap brackets crumbled off, I made a custom replacement, then The inflator hose fell off at 35 ft under water. Also the same happened to my wife's Luna after 2 dives. Judging by numerous websites mentioning the same it's pretty common. Sherwood customer support did nothing because they were manufactured more than 2 years ago and we did not have a receipt that could show they were newer than that. They offered a $37 credit/buyback towards the same bc. What a joke. Do not buy this garbage. Every dive shop that sold mares and aqua lung said if it was their gear they would take it back no questions asked. Also we had two Sherwood regulators fail from crap plastic. They were mint condition and well taken care of, just made with crap plastic in important spots. Do not buy!!!!

Great BC, But - Another report

By

from Marathon, FL, US

See the original "Great BC, But review". I have a 5 year old Avid BC only used a few times and stored indoors in an air conditioned house. BC condition is pristine no wear & tear other than about 5 years old. Tank straps ripped off. The plastic strap rings cracked off in multiple places. Took it to a local authorized dealer. Ordered a replacement bladder which I would pay for. That's okay, it is out of warranty. However, I have been waiting about for 3 weeks for replacement part. Still waiting. I liked the BC but don't think I would buy a brand new unit as a result of my experience and delay in getting a part replacement.

Tought ang well built

By

from Drummondville, QC, CA

Done around 75 dive with, work flawlessly in all condition from warm water to under ice dive. I value safety first and this one with double strap tank holder is one of my kind. Plenty of ring to attach all your gear an huges pockets make you able to keep all your gears accessible and well placed. Confortable and durable

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Vicki Z  Great BCD!!
Randy J  for fresh water diving
DAVID M  I bought this for my son, I own an older AVID and have over 100 dives with no issues, I like all the rings and attach points.
Orval P  Appears to be an excellent BC for the price. I'm a master scuba diver and reviewed many BC's. This has everything I need.
BRIAN C  You cannot beat the price of this BCD. I cannot wait to try it out. I wanted good quality at a good price. I'm very pleased that I found this BCD.
Kenneth C  I been renting for over 6 years and it was high time that I owned my personal BCD. Sherwood is a popular brand for rentals, plus my regulator is Sherwood. I hope it will allow me to dive more often with less preparation time. Dive safe y'all!
Dorothy G  christmas gift
Alexander W  I tried this BC on in my local dive shop and it fit so snug and perfect. Found this BC on leisure pro for the best price and jumped on it.
William C  Can the tank straps be replaced by non plastic web straps?
FLOYD W  I don't see why not
KRIS B  The tank straps are not plastic. They are Nylon straps. The only thing that is plastic is a small piece that is on strap to add a little more friction. I have a friend who like the way the clamps work on Aqua lung BCD's better and he changed those straps out completely. I hope that answers your question.
