    What happened with the APOC?

    There is nothing on RBW about this as posting on it seems to be a felony. If this is a bad subject, I do apologize...but I havent been following it for a few years now.

    Well based on a review on DiveOz of their 02 rebreather, it sounds like the products might need some more work..

    jep, i have no dog in this fight and welcome anyone to continue or contradict this explanation. i don't dive rb and don't really care, but sometimes like to read a good train wreck thread.

    anyway, it seems the apoc is essentially vaporware, that the inventors took people's money upfront to be able to go into production but then for whatever reason failed to do so while still trying to hawk it and taking in money, making promises, and not giving any refunds. i think maybe one or two hand-made ones were delivered and then radio silence. the threads about them would get so heated - think thermonuclear - that i think most sites just pulled them and made the topic pretty much taboo.

    Holy crap! Did that really happen? That's terrible. There was always talk about it being vaporware, but I really thought it was going to be a legit unit. I hope some people got their money back. That sucks.
