I can PayPal you.
    My vote is: JUMP on this deal now!!

    Just bought 2 1969 steel 72's out of hydro for $14.50 each. Had them hydro'ed and they passed with flying colors. Makes a great budget set of SM tanks. I am only using them for cold shallow open water dives, mostly solo so amount of gas they hold is not much of an issue. They work great for the way I use them but definitely not enough gas for deeper dives. I have about $100 interested for a pair of steels, that is pretty good bag for the buck.

    The only 7/8 UNF valves that I've ever seen with an angle, is the old Sherwood manifold made from around 87 to who knows when. As you know, this manifold could not be broken down into two separate K valves. I won't go so far as to say that Genesis scuba never made an angel 7/8 UNF K valve, but if they did, I've never seen one!
    I had a pair of Genesis 7/8 angled K valves.

    With a slight overfill you get the same gas for 5 lbs less carry weight and 4 lbs less buoyancy than AL80s, so they're very efficient in terms of weight and capacity. They only weigh 26lbs dry. They're great single tanks, I didn't really like mine as manifolded doubles.

    true, but LP50's are that much better for weight, and HP100's for capacity. Only thing the 72's have over those is cost
    Interestingly I do like mine as doubles though, even as tall as I am. I prefer my HP120's, but for light weight doubles, they're not bad at all
