    Sure you can. Just replace what doesn't work, and it won't be as painful as buying all new stuff. Just get your regs services. Didn't I see there are several dive shops there :-)

    Any good college choices for a college cave diver ?

    I am attending school online through UMUC. While that is not an option, one of the research papers I did was on Florida caves. Much if not all of the reference I gathered was conducted by the...

    Apeks Mouthpiece

    That is what I currently use, and it is fine. Good thing they are cheap, because stretching weakens them faster.

    Side mount Rig choices

    My buddies and I borrow each other's gear, and just deal with the different rigging. I figure if they can dive with it, so can I.

    Apeks Mouthpiece
