There's the annual Rebreather Experience Mel (Silent Scuba) puts on. That's where I first decided on the Meg after realizing that I just didn't breathe on the KISS well (which I had my sights set on before trying them all). Highly recommended if you're going to drop a chunk of change on a CCR.

The GUE Seattle Wednesday night tweeks are also good for those wishing to try doubles, stages, scoots, etc.

When we do the XDeep demo day people will be able to try the Ghost, Stealth and Zeos systems in the pool and in open water - however, you can actually test any of these in the pool now as we have them all available.

Sounds fun! Do you have to have any sidemount experience to do sidemount in the class? Can you try both sidemount and doubles?

Glad you asked, as Bellevue Divers is finalizing the calendar of a number of Demo Days that will take place every month from April to September. Each event features one manufacturer's gear to try one day in the pool, one day in open water, with in store seminars.
We have confirmed SUEX scooters, XDeep Tech gear, Scubaforce SF2 rebreather and Drysuits, SEAC recreational gear, Poseidon rebreathers and gear, and we are finalizing participation of other niche products to pair with the main lines.
We also run regularly the Discover Tech experience with doubles and sidemount (with aluminum sets specially for the pool).

I just got an email of upcoming events from Dive Right in Scuba, and they list a Try Tech Demo at the pool. Minimal fee ($10/person), with things like trying side mount, doubles, stage bottles, etc... Sounds like a very interesting experience for a growing diver (like myself). Unfortunately, the commute to Illinois is a bit long for a single demo night!

Does anyone know of anything like this in our area? I think it would be a lot of fun to try out these things, rather than start with a big equipment investment!
