Whatever you do, don’t use those cheap $20 ones that claim to hold like 400 lbs per handle. Rent the ones you can pump and has a suction gauge. I learned the hard way with Jorge’s tank lol

I've suggested the club get at least one pair. They save backs!

I am in support of saving backs! How much are they? Seems like a handy thing to provide to our members !

I rented at interstate rentals in Portland and they were about $15 each per day.

Hmm.  75lb capacity each so probably would want at least 4 of them for a combination of weight and hand holds yeah?  What does a red sea 650 peninsula weigh... seems like that is our new standard these days :D

Too bad I did not have more noticed.  I could have picked up from our shop in wilsonville.  

Best of luck Brian

Prob best to be safe and get the 9 inch ones. Those have a 150 lb/ handle capacity

That makes more sense as it would be best to have a significant margin of error.  Probably still want at least 4 for sufficient hand holds I would think.

I personally would do 4 of the 75lbs so two sets or 2 of the 150s 1 set. With 4 you can distribute the weight being lifted to multiple spots. Thats just my opinion though. All comes down to the club's budget.
