    Re: New rb concept

    Are you working on a new "rb concept" or a new rb model?!
    If it is a new model, well why not.
    If it is a new concept, I am curious :)

    I am curious as to what is conceptually new about it since from the outside it looks quite conventional.
    Sure hope the hose size is increased. Looks kind of small.
    Cheers,

    Dave....

    All of the heavy components low and air compartments high in the head. There can only be one outcome. "Sea horse" trim that you might be able to fix with weight pockets high in the unit. Basic flaw in rebreahter design with tankvalves turned upside down. Nothing new and revolutionary just old facts often neglected.

    Ouroborus

    Mk15, Poseidon Mk 6 60m

    Re: New rb concept

    Ok I'm not trying to put a dampener on anyone's initiative here, there is a couple of points that I will draw attention to, inverted cylinders etc etc yes, weight can go low, yes seahorse position etc,,,, they had this issue with the ouroborus, hence they have lead pouches (bags really) attached at the top of the casing at the back of the shoulders to help trim out... Also , again ouroborus in nature is the rear mounted display. (On most now they don't work) a good idea in theory if your diving with other people that understand it... (And can read it)
    But,,,,, illustrations are ok, but what is going on underneath? And what are the planned special features?

    All I see is a sketch of a box with some hoses coming out of it... My point, really, was that it seems a bit odd to be making definitive statements about one aspect of a 'design' when that design doesn't actually seem to exist. But it doesn't matter.

    IMHO trim and balance should be the first aspect of the design not the last.

    Well, I can dive an Inspo in trim, wearing a wetsuit and with no added weight (in salt water, anyway) so I guess I'm more interested in WOB, reliability, flood recovery, stuff like that.
