I just dove my Sport KISS for seven glorious days aboard Sea Hunter at Cocos Island (Island of the sharks). Most of the dives were pretty deep (137’ max for me) and I experienced strong surge, sharp rocks, and some violent jostling on the deco line. And of course lots o’ sharks.
My unit, #146 did not so much as suffer a hiccup at this rather severe and isolated location known for strong currents, limited visibility, and extreme diving conditions. I brought along a few spares but needed not a one. My unit also fell off a bench with a loud bang, flush onto the deck, and nothing cracked, broke, or bent. It was little embarrassing to have 18 heads swivel in my direction though… I continue to be impressed with the virtually effortless WOB during the heavy exertion of pushing a big fat video rig against the current. I feel utterly safe on this rebreather and love the easy maintenance, back mounted counter lungs, reliability, and low weight.
There were nine other Sports onboard and as far as I know not one experienced a failure of any kind. You make a great product and your company’s customer service is as good as any in the world.
