The truth about shopping for Scuba Equipment on the Net
and why you should consider buying your dive equipment from Rick's...
Here are some simple facts to consider:
The Internet sellers (probably not even a diver) may not even be located stateside and are selling dive equipment at its "basic worth," with little to no information, unassembled, in the box and not registered. Can you get a better price by ordering on the Internet? Maybe & maybe NOT. While the net may be a good source for gathering information, it's usually not good for providing service. Basically, they have no future or long term concerns about you period...WE DO! So it usually comes down to price or value.
"Cheap dive equipment is not usually good
and good dive equipment is not usually cheap"
