    JJ CCR Dead?

    I was recently certified on the AP Inspiration. I was speaking with a prominent local diver who mentioned that JJ was dying soon. This guy is in a position to know things that I don’t. In any case, he said the owner of the company plans to retire and has no intention of selling the company...

    First open water dives with rebreather...

    I had my first two open water dives with a rebreather yesterday. The first dive was an unmitigated disaster within the first three minutes, I was questioning every life choice I have ever made. My instincts told me to swim the rebreather to the middle of the quarry, scuttle it there, swim...

    Why no love?

    I am new to rebreathers (so new I haven't even dove one yet) but I am completing the TDI training next week. In any case, I have been reading a lot about the various brands and I have some questions regarding attitudes/beliefs and trends. JJ, Meg, fathom, Revo, Defender, Optima, and Kiss are...

    Are moderators still active on Rebreather World?

    I signed up for an account there on the 7th and I'm still not approved. I got the confirmation email and followed the link at which point it told me that a moderator would review and approve me. I'm still waiting. Is this normal? Aaron

    WTX-60R question

    I set up a WTX-60R in a Hogarthian config (or where I can find a setup guide specific to this bladder). I need to know hose length and placement for the redundant bladder. Standard length is a bit too long and I don't want to buy 3 hoses trying to figure out the best length. I tried to...

    Weird issue with Reg after service

    Ok, so I have 2 Apeks Black Sapphires, I just had them both serviced prior to a trip to Coz and noticed something strange. When I am at shallow depths (10 to 15 feet) one of the two makes a strange howling sound on inspiration. Also, this part could all just be in my head, but I can't seem to...

    Idea for NERD III

    I have NERD II and love it. The first dive or two, I didn't like it because I couldn't figure out how/where to position if for maximum visibility. After a dozen or so dives with it, I am happy to say, I got it figured out and love it. I do have a suggestion for the NERD III and it is simple...

    KVR1 Drysuit discontinued?

    I saw on a couple of sites that the KVR1 drysuit was discontinued. I didn't see any news related to this and Apeks still lists it on their site. Is it discontinued and if so, is there a new version coming out? Why did they DC it? Thanks in advance, Aaron

    Orchatorch D620V

    Does anyone have any experience with this light? I see the regular D620 version for sale at various resellers, but I am not seeing the "V" (video) version. I also haven't seen any reviews of the "V" version. I am going to Cozumel in about a month and thought about picking one of these up for...
