We had the Mares rep show us the promo DVD presentation at our January meeting.
The reg is titanium with some features I believe will work their way into the mainstream products. Fins are interesting and are supposed to provide more power with less effort (but I'll just stick with my JetFins and stainless straps). I think the 3rd product was a BC (but obviously it didn't impress or interest me as I would have remembered it).
The series is numbered and will only be sold up to the limited edition production lot (something like 2000 regs, 8000 fins, etc.) SportChalet and other shops will have a limited quantity to sell. Yuppies will be sure to buy them and will pay the premium price. Basically anyone who buys a Hummer or Lexus 4-wheel drive SUV is a target consumer.
My basic conclusion, not to 'dis' the product as there were some innovations, was that if there are only X quantity being made, what about future spare parts and servicability?
