beritanya udah agak lama bro,
yang di-recall bukan BCDnya tapi weight pocketnya (surelock II), karena menurut mereka rubber handle-nya gampang patah jadi pocketnya bisa nyangkut di dalem.
Beberapa waktu yang lalu Divemaster (Aqualung dealer) di facebook page-nya juga mengumumkan recall untuk isu yang sama di atas. Cekidot gan.
