News for users of the RG/UFM:

Hello Janwillem,

thank you for your mail. I hope it is ok.

I'm looking to meet a RG-UF/M user near Munich to exchange experiences. My rebreather knowledge is rather small. although I dive conventional for a long period, please answer through email using this address info@ronwaffen.com , thanks.

Ich will einen RG-UF/M Benutzer nahe München finden um Erfahrung auszutauschen. Meine Rebreather-Kenntnisse sind sehr bescheiden, obwohl ich schon sehr lange konventionell tauche. Antworten per mail erbeten unter info@ronwaffen.com , danke.

Here is a nice change to the basic unit. Martin of Tecme changed the standard fittings to be used with the Dräger Ray Breathing loop. It offers the opportunity to add a OXY2
Here you see the result. Photo courtesy of Jordi Mateo Barcelona Spain.

OK, here is something to think about. What about changing the RG/UFM in a back mounted rebreather? With the use of Submatix BCD and a weight Harness interesting results can be achieved!

This people use the Submatix weight harness and Submatix BCD with the RGUFM .They use the BCD as a Breathing bag .The price for the Harness 150,00 € and BCD 155,00 € .They use one BCD with a special configuration ( two separate chambers and Tee connectors ) as breathing bags.


Uwe Lessmann, thanks for your contribution!
