Has anyone used the new AQA Lynx mask. It is a low volume mask. I am currently using the AQA Mantis and I would like a lower volume mask. I currently dive in 20-60 ft. My diving is mostly for spearfishing. Any comments would be appreciated.


low volume

IMHO. Low volume should be very low on your list of features that you would like to find in a mask. Comfort and visibility are far more important. With the new techniques, volume doesn't become a factor until 120 feet or so. If you have a 'good sized' nose, and maybe if you don't, take a look at Beuchat.
P.S. If you shoot fish at 120 feet, please disregard any comment that I make about equipment.

What particular Beuchat model? How does it compare to the Mantis? And where could I get it on Oahu?

What new techniques are you talking about? Maybe I can come out to Kona and you could demonstrate for me. :)
