Never, always, certain circumstances?

when volunteering at the aquarium we use pony bottles on our closed circuit dives and Surface Supply dives. It is a mandatory precaution. When I dive recreationally, I do not use a pony bottle. But, couldn't hurt to have one just in case if you set up allows for it.

I never have but some people do I guess. If you dive with a buddy that has similar air consumption and you manage your gas you shouldn't every need one for recreational diving.

Never used them. Not necessary for the type of diving that I do.

Nope, never used one or thought it was needed. I did consider the spare air before.
