So I know I use 18lbs in freshwater with a 8mm traditional scuba suit... Before going diving with my new Picasso 3mm Apnos suit I want to be able to ball-park how much weight I will need so that I don't have to spend all day messing with it. I'm guessing 6-8 lbs? Thanks for any help...
i would say 8 pounds probably, but it depends on how deep you are going as well. 8 pounds worked for me with an omer 3mm for 30 meter diving, but with everyone its individual. I say 8 pounds and then bring weights so you can change it from 6-10 if you need to
