Slinging a pony bottle...

Hey guys, I've been thinking that I want to utilize a redundant air source while solo diving.. Currently, my personal limitations for soloing are 35ft, in an area I've dove before, and am quite familiar with. I am wanting to expand in both locations and depth. However, I think it would be wise to implement a redundant air source to do this....

SO, my question is: How do I rig up the bottle to sling it? Anyone have any pictures or words of advice on how to do this? I'm a little reluctant to ask the LDS how to do this, and want to avoid the finger pointing and lecture!

What type of diveing are you planning? ie Wreck/cave, Spearfishing, Fish/creature photo

For most ocean inviorments I sling my 19cf with a Scubaduba rig on the right side of my primary tank. Stays out of the way while taking pix and spearfishing/lobster diveing. I keep the secondary on a bungee necklass
and have a inflator hose octo as well.

The Scubaduba rig is available in most LDS's in our area Not much to it. I'll send pix if your interested
