    Your biggest choices are going to be;
    -CCR (closed circuit rebreather) vs SCR (semi closed circuit rebreather)
    -Front Mounted Counterlungs vs Back Mounted
    -ECCR (electronic closed circuit rebreather) vs MCCR (manual closed circuit rebreather).

    You can research the differences between CCR and SCR and decide which fits your bill better. I'd suggest diving units (as well as doing research) to figure out what you like in the other choices.

    Personally, I dove front mounted ECCR for a long time and now i'm diving back mounted MCCR and like it better myself.

    Hope that helps to get you started.

    Start with a unit that your fiends are using. You'll learn a lot about what they do and why.

    Rebreathers are something that we have to go to in order to dive the way we want to dive. They are not something we go to for any other reason.

    Keep your friends close, but your fiends closer.
