    Has 2 hoses so should be better then a normal pendulum rebreather. And it depends on head space and scrubber layout.... that is unclear to me.

    I would build it with a good water trap.
    And have a 2 pass scrubber

    Apparently you know better than the people actually diving them. There is a reason it never made it to market.
    It was a ~3lb axial scrubber, about 4inches in diameter and 6 inches long.

    No Kiss unit has a water trap and the Sheppard no different than the spirit, sidewinder, sidekick or classic (or the former sport)

    I gather everyone on this thread watched in awe the workings of the expedition-built Megalodon CCR. But nobody bothered to question whether stainless steel bands are compatible with aluminum scrubber buckets. (Corrosion wouldn’t be a problem since the unit is used in freshwater). While I’m here, I’ll extrapolate my expedition CCR choice. Although the expedition-built Megalodon looks cumbersome (2 independent handsets, loops, scrubbers, control units, censors, etc., on one set of counter lungs), I would probably go with the JJCCR/Megalodon/AP and use the Triton CCR as the backup since it’s been tested to 210 metres; although, I’ve only heard of it flooding once.

    I concur with your persuasions that another thread should begin.

    [Mod Edit]

    A stock triton cannot be used at 210 meters btw

    Why would you use a stock triton as a BoB, thing floods every third dive it does and eats trough electronic at the same speed my Meg eats batteries.

    Right but you just need to replace the original mav by a needle valve or add a bypass line.
    Some people took the Triton to 240m

    The Triton is used quite regularly as BoB and no it doesn't flood. Why do you say that ?!
    Now regarding the electronics, it comes with SW if you like...
