    New Rebreather Development/construction?

    Are there any new rebreathers being developed out there that are about to come out on the market?



    Is Halcyon working on a new unit or are GUE going to continue to redress the JJ-CCR for the near future?

    How long is AP going to keep up production of the Vision/Evolution? Is the new handset going to get a fresh new unit to back it up?



    Any news on all brands would be interesting.

    I believe Revo / Mares will be releasing their much awaited recreational unit soon.

    Much amaited? I didn't think we needed more rec-units.



    I was hoping for some substantial developments on units to go deep or far in overhead environments.

    Depth on CCR will be limited due to the issue of increased gas density and the ability to exhale thus getting rid of CO2. Even if one develops a machine that aids in inhalation, efficient exhalation will be an issue.

    The Fathom is a nice unit. Basically if a Pelagian and a Meg had a baby. It's a very well made unit. Head closure is slick, like an UWLD Gen5 can light. Needle valve and cell face clearing like the Pelagian, larger canister, multiple scrubber options including radial scrubbers, BMCL's.

    It's what a Pelagian would be if it wasn't made in a garage in Thailand.

    rEvo III RMS

    Re: New Rebreather Development/construction?

    The rEvo is still one of the most innovative rebreathers going around with its duel scrubber arrangement and the rMs, I understand that the rEvo IV is under development, will be interesting to see what innovation this brings.

    When I look at the pictures I would say that your comparison is a bit off. The Fathom looks more like ots pieces put together without thought and all of the design specifics are lost in a general construction. Where is this a rebreather that offers something new or better? It's a MCCR with needle valve but without any of the pros of the Pelagian.

    Maybe think of it as what Halcyon should have developed instead of going with a JJ? Lol

    For deep and or long cave diving the Fathom is leaps and bounds ahead of a JJ with lola valves and backmounted lp50s. The head to tube closure is far more secure and isn't like a dirt scoop, it has variable scrubber sizes, bmcls, the needle valve of course...

    When I look at in person (which I have), and compare it to my Pelagian (which I own and dive), I can absolutely guarantee that your assessment is incorrect.

    Are you comparing it to a MK2 unit with BMCL or a MK1 FMCL?
