    have you modified your rebreather poll

    Hi
    Have you modified your rebreather ?
    I've dived rebreather for years,
    I've rarely met rebreather divers diving their unit just as it was the day purchased it.
    4th cell
    new head
    off board tanks
    etc etc
    regards

    First thing I did was replace the paragon with an Oceanic Omega (following the article here on RBW), and the second thing, add a stainless frame to the top of the unit to protect the pods.

    So nothing too serious, but who's to know what's gonna be next.

    Yep, put a Kent tooling box, and a divematics b.o.v. on. Still thinking of other mods.

    The worst thing I did in by rebreather life is not to buy a kiss....
    I think I would have done only sligth adaptations instead of a complete conversion of my dolphin that took me 8 years (((-:
    but anyway as you said who knows... we all feel like to add a personal touch to our rig

    Re: have you modified your rebreather poll

    Minor mods so far:

    - Narked@90 stand
    - S/S backplate
    - Kiss BOV (with Proton now)
    - Oceanic G-snaps for suit gas and torch
    - Dave Mager 4th cell/Beanie 4th cell adaptor (waiting to be fitted when the d*mn spanner turns up)

    Minor mods to come:

    - Shorter SPG hoses, so that they run round my waist and not over the shoulder (better for my wife and should work for me)
    - Backup O2 bottle with reg and suit feed in Narked@90 stand to make up for the little 2l Evo cylinders
    - Replacement of the AutoAir as it's a) too long and b) I don't like the idea of an OC diver grabbing it and breathing down my precious dil
    - GCS connections for the BOV to my bailout
    - Evo+ box and Vision scrubber for those longer/deeper dives
    - Classic head/scrubber with Shearwater as a save a trip kit

    Minor mods that were backed out (so far ):

    - Decoweenie frame. Nothing wrong with it, but I damaged mine through stupidity and find the Evo box much easier to use
    - BMCL kit. Bought and sold without fitting. Decided I didn't want/need to make the change

    That's it for now...

    Cheers,

    Re: have you modified your rebreather poll

    I dived homebuilds for a few years so when I bought my CK I wanted something I wouldn't have to modify.

    I voted for minor mods, I've changed the BOV to a Mares (but that's a Jetsam standard part so not really a mod), I've also added a QC so that the BOV is connected to my bailout and I've replaced the displays with a Shearwater. I don't like it as a primary so will be swapping back to the originals.

    Pretty much stock apart from that and no plans to alter anything.
