Wow, that's a slick looking breathing machine... and knowing the developers I'll bet it works as good as it looks!

Pure SCUBA Porn.

When is the Argonaut production run beginning? These beta test mules are driving some of us nuts with anticipation. 'Course that's been the plan all along Blofeld, you and the rest of SPECTRE holding out on the Argonaut.

The reg has been dove extensively on Bonaire in July (with borrowed cans from a Phoenix) and again this week in Cozumel with a spiffy set of official production cans. The reg performs great. The exhaust on the new cans work exceptionally well. Sad to say but the reg is now packed in the suitcase for the trip back home.

There was never a pre-order option for them.

The Argonaut Kraken regulators we used were not final production models. All were great performers but still a few tweeks necessary and a whole lot of information to review before going forward.

Keep checking back for updates :D

Argonaut Krakens dove the Cenotes as well. Photo is at one of the entrances. Chocolate milk layer goes down about 6'. The entire complex was built before the word safety was invented :D :D

Looking at it reminded me of a dive in the harbor back home. Oh joy. But, it was pretty cool once past the foo foo layer.
