    For the JJ I like
    1. WOB
    2. Potential flood recovery
    3. ADV works well (compared to ADV on my rEvo)
    4. Uses a standard back plate
    5. Modularity of electronics, using DiveCan
    6. Sensor location


    To the rEvo
    1. Scrubber rotation
    2. Sensor tray can be removed from the unit to facilitate drying
    3. Additional sensors can be added to isolate redundant electronics... Of course the sensors are in the same place SO does it make a difference???
    4. Ability to custom select the electronics package you want on the unit from the factory
    5. I hate to admit it, but after years of diving the adjustable, plastic quick connect rEvo harness, I've come to love it... Feel free to kick me for being a stroke!


    If I go with the rEvo, it'll be with a NERD controller and a single dream, removing the potential catch hazard/failure point of an arm mounted cable. I wish this was a factory option for the JJ.

    Decisions, decisions!

    This is soooooo funny. I am exactly the same!!!!! I have just sold my rEvo mini and i either want a rEvo micro or a Liberty , There are many things i like about the rEvo, But the Liberty has some great features that are sucking me in. Then i think to myself,"stick with the rEvo , you are getting used to it". Then i think to myself,"but the liberty has this feature , and that feature". I too am going round in circles.

    Re: AHHHH! I can't decide what rebreather I want!

    Why are you selling the rEvo II?

    I have a 6 year old III that has been converted from mCCR to analog hCCR.
    I cant think of a single reason to blow several $k to change it.

    I've been diving MCCR since 2007. To be honest, I've only dove an ECCR three times, three trial dives on a JJ.
    I like MCCR, however doing deeper dives, O2 addition becomes a PITA.

    I thought about that initially, however looking at the cost of the upgrades that would be required, and the fact my unit is 8-9 years old, it seems to make more sense to just buy new.

    Both great units IMHO

    Only reasion I changed from the rEvo was ease of getting ALL ofthe JJ in an overhead locker..

    If it wasent for that id still most likley be on a rEvo Mini

    Cant see the big diferance between standard and mini? if I were to swap it would be to a micro

    if you have a crew you dive with it's helpful for all to be on the same unit. sharing spares, gaining knowledge etc. it's a factor worth considering

    I dive the Pelagian DCCCR and there is no difference in O2 addition between shallow and deeper dives. During your pre breathe adjust your needle valve to the correct setting and go. Diving to 100 meters is no problems.

    Why?

    I have dived MCCR down to 95m and didnt think it was any diferent to diving it to 30m in terms of 02 add?

    SO i am curious to know why or do you mean past the max depth for CMF 02?

    Yes, I've had mine down to around 350' a couple of times. I found my O2 addition stopped functioning abruptly about 290'.

    This was cured with an additional O2 bottle, however this resulted in some scary spikes!

    Even though we don't do that many of these dives, it just seems it would be easier, and a bit safer moving on to H/ECCR.
