    Hi Pete,

    I would take a guess and say that since you can handle twin tanks, any one of the rebreathers you listed would be just fine. I know the Evolution is more compact than the Inspiration, and is pretty similiar to the sport kiss, but I doubt you would have issues with any of them.

    One thing to look at it would be scrubber times for each of the units seeing you eventually want to go to 200+ with the unit.

    Hi
    Pete
    Take your pick of units
    you say no try mix to many cylinders
    you could all ways load up with cylinders in water , no need to do it on the boat .
    This will help in the water
    have a look

    Pete
    Most of the tub o lards I dive with cant get by on two legs
    So we have to invent ways to help then, ie lift on dive boat , two deck hands to kit them up and unkit them

    Think you will find a way when you want to :D

    KISS Classic, Dolphin

    Pedro: One ting you may wish to consider is that given your desire to do a lot of photograpy, you might be happier with an ECCR. Certaily that does not relieve you of the responsibility to monitor your PO2 but it does reduce the workload a bit.

    Hopefully an Inspo diver will chime in here, but they do seem to require additional lead for trim and weight which would not be good for you.

    I dive my KISS Classic with no weight in a 3 mil suit like you use there in PR.
    The new Sport KISS is a really small and light unit. That is certainly worth your consideration. The KISS Classic as a lot heavier than the Sport. How often are you going to be diving greater than 160'?

    Another advantage of the KISS is it is very simple to maintain. No need to ever send the unit away. Good luck with your choice. Peter
