Is a rebreather the solution? Do most of you rebreather dudes and dudettes just dive your rebreathers once you get dialed into them and give up your tanks permanently?

I have been considering buying a compressor, but then I heard that rebreathers could be bought more reasonably than I thought.....

Anybody have any links for these new rebreathers?


I haven't dived with Open-Circuit tanks since I bought my rebreather. There are actually several CCRs on the market that can be purchased new for under $7,000.00. For example, you can get a new KISS Sport, complete, designed for dives down to 150 FSW, for under $4,000.00.

Dude, sorry but you are a poor candidate for a CCR IMHO. You need to be absolutely meticulous with any RB since its pretty much continuously trying to kill you with either too much O2, not enough O2, or CO2 - and you are not a meticulous anal retentive about gear kinda guy.
