Inside ScubaLab: 2013 BC Test
Apeks Black Ice
The super capable Apeks Black Ice BC boasts four dump valves for evacuating air in any positiion.
In early March, the ScubaLab Test Team tackled 14 new models in the clear, cool waters of Blue Grotto Springs in Williston, Florida. We dived the latest from Apeks, Aqua Lung, Beauchat, Cressi, Mares, Seac and Sherwood. From tough tec-ready rigs to beginner-friendly jackets and ultra light traveling companions, the new crop of 2013 BCs is a diverse and capable lot.
Here’s a photo gallery of all the new 2013 models we tested. And look for the complete ScubaLab reviews in the June 2013 issue, plus a complete digital package with features charts, test protocols and more, right here in early June.
