It is a nice page but some of the specs are not correct/current.

I know several somewhat accomplished cave divers who dive the old PST HP100's. My wife has 85's and dives caves. I've dove the HP100's in a cave without problems as well. Any tank will work, if you get can trim them out for your body. Tanks are merely a tool to dive.

Now, the question is can you get good trim in HP100's?
Play with them and find out. My guess is that you can.

Any double's will work fine as long as yur body type trims out well. I like my lp95's myself.. more than enough gas. exp. with a good cave fill.

Just about any doubles will work, period, some just present more a challenge to trim out than others.

The only exception I've heard about is the HP80s... they're so extremely short that taller divers, even experienced ones, sometimes have problems trimming out with them.

Any other size tank is going to be roughly the same height within a few inches, so pretty much all other tanks will work fine for anyone not on an extreme end of the height spectrum.

So Compudude, would those HP 80's be a good choice for a shorter diver since they are typically too short for a taller diver?

Everyone is different, and there are no hard and fast rules.

That said: Most likely yes. They are very popular with shorter divers for that very reason... and unpopular with taller divers for the same reason.

Thanks CompuDude!
