I prefer aluminum 80's, no rust issues and thats what I dive with exclusively so I know how much weight I need.

I own twenty eight tanks some of each. It just depends on the dive and if I am diving a dry suit or just a skin. I expect in Denmark it's mostly cold water diving.

I typically use Aluminum 80's. I have tried steel before, and that was pretty cool, didn't have to carry any extra weight, the tank was enough weight for me to stay underwater, which i was surprised about. It also allowed me to stay under a little longer, since it is 100 instead of 80 cubic feet.

I don't own my own tanks, I just rent.

Steel HP100 is my tank of choice and works very well in CA diving. If renting or on a charter that includes tanks I don't mind alum but would use steel if given the choice.
