    Default From the Guy who said NEVER EVER WILL I.......

    All,
    I have been long thinking about switching to CCR, as there are just so many endless benefits. Albeit, with many more moving parts, and things to monitor than OC. Anyways, I was just looking to START my reading-up on all rebreathers currently available. I would want to buy a T-Mix rebreather, so as to not limit what I could do in the future. Would likely not be taking this rebreather past 300'fsw, even in the future (Yes, I'm sure you all said that at sometime, and moved past it ). Anyways, any recommendations, "steer-clear's", etc., would be great. Any books that you all CCR guys believe is a must before donning the gear/ thinking about purchasing one? I don't want to start this game as a diver whom should have never donned the CCR in the first place!

    I just did my Kiss rebreather training a few weeks ago and I'm on the waiting list for a unit. I chose the Kiss Spirit. It's no bigger than a standard open circuit rig, and aside from the hoses running around the side of your head it's very similar. Work of breathing took some getting used to but I'm told that because the lungs wrap around your kidney/lung area it's quite good (comparatively). Also, it's a mechanical rebreather meaning that you have to manually add O2 periodically at depth. There is an orifice which streams in O2 at a rate set to match your metabolic O2 rate so no servos to fail.

    My instructor was Dane Motty (S*& L Divers and Personalized Gifts - Home) an avid spear fisher and cave diver. I'm sure he'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

    That's me & Mike Young the owner of the company diving on the Oriskany. Super cool guy who believes in his product.
