I use  a  seaquest pro unlimited, i like it ,works for me.Cant recall what i paid for  it new between $350&$400 ,i have seen them for sale on SB used for $125, I would look around for  used gear in good shape. Also  i think Matt has put  up a few links in here for used gear that was a great deal.

Figure out what size you need and keep an eye on craigs list a tone of people buy brand new gear to get certified and then quit diving after the first few dives on the north coast.

Jason I bought a scubapro knighthawk 500.00, I suggest try renting different ones to see what works for you. Craigslist has alot of good deals, look out for junk though. Good luck Bro

Farris bought one on Ebay it was a scubapro classic weight intergrated for 150.00 in real good shape, now that I think of it he might want to sell it, I will contact him and ask. Just talked to him and he wants 150.00 he paid 200.00 pm me for his number if your interested
