Hi Rudolf,

I have owned Inspirations, an Evolution and currently have the Meg.

It is by far the better CCR.

Build quality is awesome, only the counterlung T-pieces are injection moulded, everything else is machined.

It is compact, modular and solid.

The Shearwater electronics are contained in one, intuitive handset and combine with a high quality HUD.

I teach all of the above CCRs to Mixed Gas level and the Meg is my choice for my diving.

Cheers,

Dave Cooper

Stuart (schford on YD) is one of the founders/admins, and as he dives a Meg the large presence on there is no surprise. I was speaking to Stuart on Friday and he raves about it. He has the full monty, Shearwater, HUD etc. and reckons it was about $10000 (can't remember if that includes training).

This is the second MEG I have seen in the flesh and they do look the nuts, with amazing build.

Just out of interest what sort of price do they work out at for the the unit and first stage of training?

The cost of training is 800.00 This does not include Scrubber fills, boat fees, or gas. You have to spend a min of 16 hours of underwater time on the course and there is a writen exam. The unit without first stages, cylinders, backplate and harness but with the optional ADV and Tiger clamps is about 4600. This does not include shipping or duty. You have to add $2000 if you want the Shearwater electronics. There are pros and cons to these. Hope this helps.

Thanks i am weighing up the pros and cons of going ccr but it wont be for a bit yet. I looked at the price list for the Meg but i found it quite confusing. Ivon.

I bumped into Stuart (who runs RBworld) today at Wraysbury. He has a Meg and he told me it cost around $10k. He's a friendly bloke who posts on here as sch. Why not drop him a PM?
