    3. Has the scrubber design changed at all (it does look like the same design but different manufacturing methods)?

    Hi Andy.

    The BOV is designed to be operated one handed and can be reversed so the lever is either right or left handed operated. The standard DSV is one handed operation but was not designed to be reversible.

    The primary display is mounted on the nickel plated brass counterweights on the DSV/BOV.

    The scrubber geometry is exactly as on the P1 but the center breathing tube on the P2 is removable for cleaning. It is now made glassed nylon. I can stand on it while it is empty and it doesn't break. The new materials are very strong. The breathing hose clamps are stainless aviation hose clamps. Very clean & cool. The o2 sensor holders come out with the cells for ease of working with them.

    Look for me at the booth & I'll take you for a full tour.

    Awesome Chett! Judging by your past reports I would have gained nothing over them by going to see it in person at DEMA!

    I don't think an upgrade is really an option. You'll need a new head, scrubber bucket, basket, counter lungs, loop and harness. While the basic architecture of the unit is the same, pretty much all the components are different, mostly better, but all different.

    The unit uses Shearwater electronics controlled by a Predator handset. There is a Shearwater HUD as well. The electronics, plus the switch in loop direction, are the main difference from the P1's design. However, from a manufacturing point of view, all the components have been re-engineered, all of them that I saw for the better.

    It loses the elegant simplicity of the Prism 1's electronics, but it adds capability and upgradeability - the electronics will be easy to upgrade both in terms of hardware and software. I am excited about the partnership with Shearwater who have always shown themselves to be a company who delivers products real divers want to use. They have some neat products coming that hopefully will be incorporated into the Prism 2 in the future.

    Thanks to Matthew Addison for giving me a great in-detail tour of the unit.

    Andy

    Took a ton of pictures inside the unit with the cover off. Flying back to CA tonight. Post them early next week.

    Hi Matt:

    It looks nice, everything the Prism 1 wanted to be, now if they would only re-name the thing I'd get one.

    I hope the HUD hasn't changed much. It is one of the Prism I's best features. Happy to hear that the scrubber canister is tougher, the only thing wrong with the Prism I head, bucket and scrubber is it's too darned easy to break, and the fit of the components straight out of the box left a lot to be desired (read Dremel tool). In the water, the Prism I is awesome and I look forward to diving the Hollis version. When does the sidemount one come out? (Ha ha).
