I am new to this forum and new to the rebreather world. To get straight to the point, I am going to be purchasing a new HammerHead Extreme CCR unit within the next few weeks but am stuck as to which electronics options to get. I am debating between the following and was hoping to gain some opinions as to which setup would be best, and why, as well as any negatives to the selections provided. I am currently debating between the following:
Option A: Rev C+ primary with a Rev C+ secondary
Option B: Rev C+ Primary with a Shearwater Petrel Secondary
Option C: The new SubGravity SG-1 controller (primary) with a Shearwater petrel
The new SG-1 defender model CCR from subgravity looks great, but I am hesitant given that the controller is new and is SG's first CCR controller, while Juergensen Marine's Rev C+ has been tried and tested over and over again and has been around for a while. Which would you pick and why? What are the downsides/negatives to your pick?
Im leaning towards the Rev C+ with either Rev C+ or Petrel combo, thats really where I am stuck for now. I tend to like redundancy, and with one Rev C+ running the HUD and the other the solenoid I am leaning towards two Rev C+s just due to the redundancy. I've heard the display on the Rev C+ is a little annoying due to the fact that you have to wait for it to cycle through to see all of the data, but I wanted to get opinions on this as well. I would've gotten the Rev Ds but was alerted that theyre no longer available on new units.
I am very new to the rebreather world (like super new) but have been an OC diver for a while now (going on 10 years) and want a controller I can depend on in any situation.
Thanks for your guys' input!
