    Stephanie from Germany

    Good evening,
    my name is Stephanie and I'm living in the south of Germany, near the lake Constance. I am thinking about "converting to the other side" and I focus on two rebreathers, rEvo and JJ.
    At the time being I'm finishing the normoxic trimix training and I expect that most of my dives will lead me to max. 60 m. I don't want to eliminate the option to go deeper later (full trimix), but first I have to gain experience. I want to come back to the surface safe and healthy.

    Any recommendations of your side, which rebreather you would prefer (rEvo or JJ) for above mentioned dives and why? I'm no cave diver, but a wreck dive is always nice and an option.

    Thanks a lot for your thoughts and have a nice evening,
    Stephanie

    You should do try dive with both units to find out which one you prefer. I dive with JJ an so many of my friends from your area also. Im happy with my unit and not going to change my JJ to rEvo. I think many rEvo divers will say same about their units.

    Hallo Stephanie

    Living in Germany don't you feel seduced by submatix rebreathers? I have one and it works great.

    Neptoone I agree with you.
    Submatix is based 5 hours north of you and I am sure if you asked them for a try dive they would be helpful.

    rEvo micro expedition

    Re: Stephanie from Germany

    Hi Stephanie,
    I dont know the JJ but i am very happy with my rEvo.
    If you choose a micro, you will have a very light and thin unit, quite a simple, efficient and robust design. Setting up and checking the machine is easy and quick.
    The 5 cells and the dual scrubber really make a difference, go on rEvo website download section, you will find documents explaining that better than i would.
    If you choose an micro expedition with two rEvo dreams, you have a triple redundancy which is also great.
    The work of breathing is incredible,

    (i dont work for rEvo, just love my unit ^^)

    Hi Stephanie


    Don't know the rEvo but I am very happy with my JJ and I think you can't go wrong with either one. Diving the JJ for 3 yrs now and never had to skip a dive - JJ works like a breeze, rock solid and also maintenance is easy. JJ population in Germany and Switzerland is growing fast and all divers I know are very happy with their JJs. But on the other hand it is hard to find divers who not love their unit... I think it is best to test and dive both if you have the possibility.

    Re: Stephanie from Germany

    Hello Stephanie,

    Welcome to RBW!

    Like you, I was excited and full of anticipation when I was crossing over from OC to the Dark. But, having seen some of the divers with their RB in the conventional tower scrubber, I set my eyes on the rEvo. Since then; I was deeply in love with it, considering a small Asian standing at 1.6m, Micro FT is all I need.

    It's so easy and fun to dive the rEvo. Easy to set up..pack scrubbers and maintain too.

    Re: Stephanie from Germany

    Stephanie,
    as you probably already discovered, Rebreathers are expensive ...

    I suggest you that you do some try dives to feel them to be able to choose the one who fit your practical needs. There is nothing worst than to dive with a "uncomfortable" rebrather and a try dive with the rebreathers of your choice will clear some of your doubts.
    Today are a lot of excellent rebreathers on the market and all work fine,
    but they have differences regarding size and wight, ease of maintenance, time to set-up, use of pre-packed scrubber or refillable, etc, etc.

    I personally did my first dive with a Dräger Dolphin and it was love on the first sight but then some years later i did a try dive with a Poseidon and i found the rebreather i want and need. For my personal use the Poseidon is perfect and i see no reason why i should switch to a "more sophisticate" tec rebreather, as i don't do tec diving, but if i should start to go deeper than 40 meters i still can upgrade my Poseidon to do TMX and go deep (even if it is not the perfect ccr for that)

    As you already dive with TMX you may go for a rebreather designed for TMX diving,
    but as i wrote, try to dive them before you pull the trigger and bu your own.

    Re: Stephanie from Germany

    Obviously... Needless to say, Rebreathers are expensive.. so, why not settle for a good, comfortable one, which can allow you to do recreational depth and technical depth than to upgrade it later when you feel like upgrading your level, which you'll spend even more $$$?

    +1 , And I also look at the price of second hand ones, not really to buy but then I know what to expect if I ever consider to sell! Some units go cheap second hand , others stay expensive , a little like Mercedes or a Japanese car. Both are good but there's a reason why you get more back for Mercedes ;)
