Hello.
 
Im going to egypt in december and i have been waiting for Nauticams new version of floatarms but they never show up. Have been waiting for 6month now and im starting to get worried about not getting them for the trip.
 
So i started to look around the web for alternatives. And i found hugyfot adjuatable floatarms. First i was sceptical but after a while i started to like the concept.
 
You fill them up with water at a certain deepth. Deeper=more water=less bouyancy.
 
 
Now i wonder if anyone had them, have seen them or heard anything about them. Does it work well? Are the quality good? Etc..
 
The only downside i can think of is that my rig will be heavier above surface if i want to keep the same bouyancy for next dive. But as i will need over 1500gram for macro and 4arms will give me about 1600g, i dont need that much water inside them,if any. For wide angel i will use two arms, instead of four.
 
Share you thoughts! Thanks in advance.

Have you thought about stix floats. They add very little weight, are adjustable and are available now. They will fit Iikelite, ulcs or stix arms. Read more here.

Hi.

I already have 4 stix floaters on my rig today(plus two sandpaper grips in cork). With macroport on, im still 1500g negative. So stix wont solve this bouyancy issue. :)
