Thread: Hey! Relatively new to CCR, so many to choose from!

    Hey! Relatively new to CCR, so many to choose from!

    Hello RBW,

    I am just starting into rebreathers this year, but have been wanting to since i started diving. I am currently an Instructor on the Poseidon Seven, but it is only for the shop i work at, i don't actually own one.

    I am looking at buying a unit this year but am unsure as to what to go for.

    I want a unit i can use for my open water trimix dives(unless teaching an OC TMX course obviously), but will also serve well as my main unit for when i get into trimix/cave nearing the end of this year/next year. I am very comfortable in both BM and SM but do all of my diving in sidemount. This is why i have been looking at the KISS Sidekick, but the issue of WOB in different positions is making me a bit hesitant. There isn't a whole lot of reviews or chat about the unit either! I would take my training with Jon Bernot if i were to go this route.

    If i was to not go this route, the meg seems like the best option. But i am quite a fan of the concept of pCCR after dealing with the Poseidon electronics. However obviously the electronics system is much different from the Poseidon to the meg and other eCCRs.

    Glad to finally join, and thanks in advance for any advice!

    Thanks,

    I don't have personal expirence on this machine, but a couple guys in my area dive it and give it rave reviews, (specifically the WOB), something to check out.

    Just curious, if you instruct on the Poseidon why wouldn't you choose that machine?

    Pelagian DCCCR

    Re: Hey! Relatively new to CCR, so many to choose from!

    Since you already looked at some manual machines I would recommend you to look more on the Pelagian DCCCR. It's a diver controlled ccr with needle valve which gives you limitless depth range. It's a very tight machine designed for minimal loop volume. The trim and WOB is fantastic. You can set it up with either curved FMCL or BMCL what ever suits you best. If you travel much it knocks down to an easy fit in your carry-on luggage and the flexibility allows you to use any size cylinder for O2 and DIL. You can find more info om www.rebreatherlab.com
