    I started on an inspo classic then a vision then put home made rear lungs on that thanks to Dave Thompson
    That love of rear lungs basically led me to my first rEvo . Good & bad point on all of the above units. I like the rEvo for the shearwater electronics . Comes down to personal preference . Who you dive with & sometimes even what the instructor you like teaches on .
    I trust my rebreather implicitly I just don't trust the owner

    Onwards & downwards.

    I chose the one I'd tried and it was most common in the community I was diving in.
    The views expressed are my own, worth what you've paid for them, are not on behalf of anyone else and not those of any company I work for etc.

    For me it was cost and sustainability - and one's geography plays a part.

    Putting together a full-spec Inspo in the UK is orders of magnitude cheaper than any other option I'm aware of other than homebuild.

    The other big cost is training - you're unlikely to find courses anywhere near as cheap as BSAC (we have courses for AP & Poseidon).

    Sustainability - the inspo has been around the longest of all the eCCRs so the number of units out there is vast compared to other manufacturers and support from AP is local & well established. The amount of aftermarket stuff available from either AP or 3rd party UK suppliers makes modification & maintenance a doddle.

    If I were in the US, the local aspect (with regard to aftermarket support & training) wouldn't apply, so I'd probably have gone for a Meg there.
