Does anybody know if there are any light weight chains on the market for performing underwater? Specifically chains that look a lot heavier than they actually are. Im new to this area, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you done anything with chains before? Or underwater?

Any home improvement store will seel you lightweight plastic chains, and you have choices of color.

Listen to Harley, don't go underwater chained up until you know you can handle it.

You say you have extensive underwater training,so
why the need for light weight chain?

Regular chain with 1 inch links is the best chain
to use under water,chain is not that heavy under water
and it will help keep you down,and it's weight will assist
in your escape!
Any one who has done an under water escape,knows what I

Best of luck to you,but practice,practice,practice!!

Most definately true Steve. 100%.

If you have extensive underwater training, then what chain did you use before?
I use a one inch link chain. Just don't use too much of it. Can become very heavy then. (Ask me I know.) Had a very "awakening" experience with it.

STeve Baker is correct: use a heavy chain. It not only looks better (audience can smell a fake) but the weight is really a blessing as it keeps you down. I believe you reach neutral bouyancy at 11 feet (memory) the weight gets you below that quickly so you don't waste energy fighting to stay down

Like Wolfie said -- What chains have you used before now? Got any pics of your previous underwater work? Have you ever used anything besides chains underwater? Do you have any pics where you're using chains on dry land?
