    Sanosub AROC96

    Does anyone have experience with the Sanosub AROC96?
    Is it a fun toy (what else should you call a pure O2 rebreather) ?
    Or waste of money / potential killing machine if you are not with the special forces?

    Hi, the build quality of the San o Sub clone is not very good, even though it is cheap (around 1000-1300 and you would have to wait long time!) I would rather get a real OMG unit but the C96 from OMG is expensive (around 2500) and not very easy to get.

    The c96 has a rather small scrubber which sure will work but may can be overbreathed! But I don´t see a killing machine in this unit, fun unit to do shallow dives!

    I would advise you to not buy a San o Sub unit, you won´t be happy with the build quality!

    Having dived the San-O-Sub version, I agree with Mag's statements. The unit is quite cheap and this is reflected in the quality of materials. After two dives, the scrubber center section rusted (!) and had to be replaced. Also the DSV and hoses are quite cheaply made.

    It works, is quite safe to dive but the quality is poor and I do not think would last heavy use. Still, if you are looking for an easy unit for a bit of fun in the shallows - this could be it. But don't expect much

    Yes, thats what all guy´s said that ever had one of these!


    I have only the OMG military versions and these are very very nice! So if someone is in need of a unit... little bit more expensive but big scrubber and high quality!
