Buoyancy was never an issue with Drager. It took many more pounds of weight just to sink.

When you add in the weight of the complete unit, the cost of the extra monitors, the cost of the gas, the cost of the CO2 absorber, the extra time required to assemble - disassemble - and clean everything, it all adds up to much more money and effort than I am willing to put into dive equipment. I would rather spend my diving dollars and my spare time on something that gives me pleasure. I found out that rebreathers are not for me. Technical diving isn't my thing either - I dive to get away from technology, not to take it with me. If I have to use a rebreather to do a dive that really calls for one, it is much much much less expensive to rent one.
