    following comment are conjecture and my thoughts only...

    I assume SAPL tried to end it contrary to contract. CEII consequently decided not to stock their products but would prefer that no one else did as it is a breach of contract and took action to enable this.

    I assume that SAPL can easily not supply CEII if they choose not too...so CEII need to look somewhere else and have thus found a new major supplier of gear... which will then become their foremost line.

    It is fact that CEII will now stock Aqualung/Seaquest...but who "might" get SP is still not clear...although I did hear a rumour :)

    CEII seems to want to corner the dive equipment market by getting as many brands as possible; despite the fact that the major brands (like Scubapro and Aqualung) prefer that their distributors don't carry products of competing brands.

    I think that's the long and short of why Scubapro AP wanted out of their relationship with CEII. CEII carries Oceanic as another major brand as well.

    I was in the Cebu City store yesterday, and they have slashed prices on the SCUBA PRO line by 50%... But the original "marked" price which the prices are reduced from are pretty high. It does appear that they are attempting to dump their inventory of SCUBA Pro quickly.

    Business is business is it not? I'd like to expound more but feel the need to be polite...make your own judgements...
