Looking for older model Poseidon Atmosphere weights . . .

    Poseidon has seen it fit to redesign their weights for the Atmosphere full face mask two or three times since 2000; have changed the attachment method; and have also increased their weight, by about a third, from around .4 to over .6 kilos -- a bit too heavy for comfort, after a few hours.

    I am currently looking for a second set of those older model .4 kilo weights, circa 2008 or so, which feature the Atmosphere - Poseidon logo -- with two Allen screws, which offered more flexibility in the mounting of lights, etc . . .

    After a couple of recent requests, I thought that I'd provide an image or two of the current weight system for the Poseidon Atmosphere FFM with its single Allen screw attachment method.

    Not only are these weights heavier than the previous models; but it also made the previous flexibility of mounting, say, small accessory lights all but impossible.

    My OTS masks allow for the mounting of any number of accessories, including ballasts; but I still prefer the breathing of the Poseidon . . .

    I am still on the lookout for these older .4 kilo weights, though have since been approached by a couple of folks who had incomplete sets . . .
