    Whats happening with the Meg?

    I haven't dived my meg since 2010, did consider selling it but had too many tyre kickers wasting my time.

    Not been on YD for a while, bit surprised no one is discussing the unit anymore?

    Is it unit not in vogue any more?

    Still diving mine.
    Out doing cave courses next week.

    I think ccrexplorers took some of the traffic.

    I have had mine sitting in the garage for the last 18 months, cant decide to sell or keep.
    I know at least 9 other divers still using Megs on a regular basis, may not be in vogue anymore, but it works and its reliable.

    Too expensive for most when you add the duty/vat/exchange rate on a new one (mind you, about the same as a JJ but they're trendy at the moment).
    Still quite a few around on the south coast and 1/2 the boat using them in Bikini last week - Brits and Aussies.

    Still my favourite CCR. New version just released this year with completely new electronics based on automotive type Can-Bus system so all cables ar on disconnect fittings. With US dollar value still high it makes it very expensive to buy new.

    Other limiting factors are the small number of active Meg instructors in the UK. That's partly due to the restrictive practices of ISC.

    Nearest other European made CCR I'd consider is JJ, but if you've already got a working Meg then why change it?

    I just love a definitive intelligent response.

    It's only a shame that I didn't get one 😂
