    Default F/S SM Faber 85's (I think), 3000 psi

    F/S: SM Faber 3000 psi steel tanks, I "think" LP 85's, but the imperial system doesn't come easily to me. These are Fabre 10 litre 230-bar tanks (meaning they hold 2300 useable litres of breathing gas), which I "think" are LP 85s, or maybe they're HP 85's, depends on whether you think 3000 psi is low or how. Coming from Australia, where we consider 300 bar high, I would call these LP 85s. Anyway, low or high, 2300 litres is 81 cu ft.

    They're in hydro (I will check the exact date) and have a new VIP 04/18.

    I can leave them at Dive Outpost or Amigos on 20-23rd April, 2018.

    $400 firm, no stage kit included.

    LP85s are 12s, not 10s.

    It'd be easy enough to check the physical dimensions and compare to the below chart, but they sound like HP80s.

    Is the neck thread imperial or metric?

    I agree - HP 80's it is.

    $400 for them both.

    Heading south to cave country tomorrow (Thursday April 18) at noon.

    Last chance to put in a bid - price drop to $350, can deliver to Lake City, High Springs, Amigos or Dive Outpost.
