    It's marketed as a revision of the KM48, so it takes the same pods. The straps are different, and the lens are separate, and closer to the face, giving a wider field of view.

    I talked to them today, and they said it would be up on the web site in the next week or so. It's available for sale through their resellers now, but they haven't ramped up production fully yet, so it could be 4-5 week lead times to get one.

    Here is a clip from the new catalog:

    Re: MK 48 super mask

    Received mine today - it's a nice improvement on the old version. The five point head harness is an improvement, pinching the nose for equalisation is much easier - will be able to pinch the nose no matter how thick the gloves.

    A simple very non-scientific explanation of the increase in field of view - the new mask has the same field of view at about 5" 6" feet from a wall that the old mask had from 10 feet. Someone with a maths brain can probably convert that into something that makes more sense. Suffice to say the increase in field of view is really nice.

    I got mine from Deca Diving in Santa Maria, California DECA | Diving Equipment Company of America - ask for Tim. Their service is much better than the service from Kirby Morgan's Australian distributors.

    I just ordered mine last week from Amron International.

    Kirby Morgan's US List Pricing is as follows:

    Part # Description
    #800-185 M-48 Mod 1 mask without pod $575
    #800-150 M-48 Mod 1 mask with blank pod $700
    #800-151 M-48 Mod 1 mask with pod and KM Superflow OC 2nd stage $890
    #800-015 M-48 Series Pod only $116.75
    #800-014 M-48 Series Pod only, with KM Superflow OC 2nd stage $344.50

    It seems that most dealers will do better than list, especially if you've done business with them before.

    Apparently, KM's January 2012 price list had a mistake in it, listing the M-48 Mod 1 without pod for $540.50. If you got your order in before KM corrected the price list, KM honored the lower price.

    The pods are the same between the M-48 and M-48 Mod 1, which is why I didn't order one. I have two pods already, one for my rebreather with a Shrimp BOV, and one for OC.

    One thing I forgot to mention - while the old pods work with the new mask Kirby Morgan recommend changing the hook on the pod for a new hook. I chose to order mine with a new pod as the new pod increases the chance of being able to see the HUD on a Poseidon Discovery.

    Interesting. They didn't mention this to me when I asked about it. The rep I spoke with said they were the same. I just looked back at my invoice for the original M-48, and the extra pod was the same part number as they are selling today: 805-015. I found no Mod-1-specific pod options on their price list. I guess I'll be calling them tomorrow to figure it out.
