    The (very) Tall German

    Not sure if you knew this before but I'm the new to this place, so be kind and friendly. That said I've to admit that I do nor did not own or have even dived any rebreather yet. For now. This is going to be changed in a very few days. Hopefully.

    The point is, that there are not much rebreather divers around in the middle of Europe or all of them decide not to meet me. Even worse: none of my company or any other people I know have similar minds regarding their diving skills in the future. I've also to claim, that I'm the only one around having a certified trimix/technical background (but not many experience concerning the trimix part for now). So the point is, I've dived for my self quite often to not get stucked at 40m and 40min.

    In the goal to explore the quite large Bodensee in deeper places and find some old airplanes I've decided to test some rebreathers and I'm starting with an inspiration the next days. This is just a single dive to try any rebrather at all and no decision to buy this box. The other machine I've heard of is the rEvo III. From my understanding so far, a eCCR (or mCCR) would be the type of rebreather I'm aiming for.

    If I would not feel convinced after trying I'm going to extend my (open system) trimix skills and stuff very much.

    What do you think?
    Feel free to comment and explain your opinion wich rebreathers I should have a closer look for.

    The next question would be about buying a new diving computer capable of handling trimix , so if you think this is related to my oncoming decision which type of rebreather to buy please let me know and we can discuss this as well. I would start an other thread in the next days otherwise.

    Thx a lot mates and please let me know if one of you is around in the region Bodensee (Lake Constance).

    PS: Keep in mind I'm German, so I do not like smileys!

    Are you taller than 182 cm? if not, your not (very) tall. Big Dave would still hold the title.

    Good luck in your endeavors,

    You do realize that one of the Admin's (who shall remain nameless) has a problem with smileys. Let's just hope he doesn't see this.

    I'm not here to claim any title, but to be frankly, 182cm is not quite tall. You are sure about the number? I'm not sure about the US, but it seems not tall at all when it comes to (middle/northern/eastern) Europe and I'm quite sure there are some slightly taller guys already around here. I'd recommend to look in regions around 200cm for assigning any medal...

    You could think so, but if you check the RBW user map you would just find a black hole. I do 100+ dives in the lake a year and do not see rebreathers very often, in fact around 2 or 3 on the high penetraded sites, all of them are usualy from outside.

    Servus und Moin Moin,

    Welcome aboard Tall German and good luck with your rebreather career. I'm also alittle surprised that your not seeing any rebreather divers in the Bodensee. I know a few CCR divers in that general area mostly diving Inspirations but some other machines as well. Theres even one instructor in Konstanz that I know of.

    Anyway enjoy however you decide.

    ATB,
    Marc

    Sers Großer,

    I'll switch to English for the sake of all the non-German speakers here .

    I know of Helmuth (haven't met him in person yet), but decided to get my training vom Timo, as he is more convenient to reach for me (I'm living in Munich). I'm quite happy with my BBOD, and diving in Starnberger See is quite nice. I'm going for my CCR60 qualification end of the month, then I can re-visit some of the nice places from my OC days.
    At Bodensee, I'm on of those CCR divers from outside, if you see a yellow and a black Inspi together, chances are that I'm the one in black.

    Cheers
    Jürgen

    PS - a first name would be great
    PPS - if you are looking for a computer, I can recomend a really good German build unit ;)

    Servus,

    I have met Helmuth nice guy calm and professional teaches on Inspo and rEvo as well as a few other units with ANDI and is based in Kempten I think.

    Timo I've never met personally but I think he teaches Inspo with IANTD. Based in Munich. He is an experienced instructor from what I've been told

    Theres also Arno Graner in Freiburg who teaches Inspo with IANTD and he works together with Detlef Eichler who is now based somewhere near Konstanz.

    These guys will also know the local CCR divers if they are not forthcoming on this site.

    Question? What are the German speaking members of this forum opinion of the rebreather section on taucher.net???? Any facts would be greatly appreciated.

    ATB,
    Marc
