Until I started serious cardio swimming and did 200+ dives in a year did I get VERY comfortable and and drop most weight. Wetsuits and drysuits adds difficulty in getting perfectly weighted. I remember the day/dive I was in 81 degree salt water, dive skin, no weights, let all the air out of my BC, did a 100’ dive and never put air in my BC until back on the surface. I was using a 6lb backplate and wing. It’s about heart rate (lower heart rate, lower air consumption), comfort in the water, and dive skills knowledge and practice.
