    Re: SF2 - Rebreather

    I had the honor and most of all the pleasure to test dive the SF2 yesterday.
    I dear to say to have some experience on several rebreathers, diving them from 2001 on and being teaching.
    The first shock was the weight, if I compare that with the Sentinel (I sold:) its astonishing.
    Using a CF200 DUI and fourth element subxero and thermal underwear I needed 3kg of weight. It was sharp but it worked.
    The second shock was the position the unit forces you in into the water, being as horizontal as you ever can be. No work, or better for all those of you who have being teaching many students on Inspirations as I do, the fight to not go head up diving and in their first dives braking the surface whilst diving on -3m.
    Test where done between -2m and -8m where I personally think you should test a CCR as they all work great at depth. Except for one unit I'd rather not mention who flooded in full several times around -60m in about 4seconds...Diving the unit in head up position is not nice at all, but that is not my most favorite position in caves or water in general:saucy:

    A great unit, solid as a rock and yes, I ordered one

    Hi Yves,
    You mean "astonishing" light?! :)
    By the way, is the SF2 "orderable" without the electronics?
    Thanks,
    Jale

    Indeed light :)

    By the end of the month I will have all info as then I will become Instructor on it, but I guess not as in order to keep the CE approval it will have to come with the electronics

    Congratulations mate. I guess you buy it from Tom. Welcome to the club.
    BTW. I don't need lead at all, with Otter trilaminate and 200G Otter underwear.

    The SF2 is the sidemounted one. The one on his back is a Meg.

    The SF2 has an internally mounted counterlung, so even back mounted there wouldn't be visible CLs.
