    We were told they would release in the early 2017 wich they postponed, and said more information coming later.

    Later on they've promised that they will release them this year at least...

    Anyone heard any news about these?

    Since AUP was bought out by Huish,... I think things are still in a big disarray. Looks like Huish has a bigger mess on their hands than they imagined. I would guess next year may be the earliest you may hear anything about the BMCL's. Right now they are just trying to still organize.

    As recently as a couple of weeks ago, it was difficult to get in stock products shipped within two weeks of placing the order. That has been back to normal now at one to two days. So maybe they are over the hump with some of the integration and can start looking at product development again.

    Welcome to Hollis. I was told they'd ship just after DEMA 2014.

    I remember how long it took to actually get a pair of the small counterlungs and the bailout regulator after they were announced. I don't know if they ever did come out with a stand.

    I don't have any dog to pick in this fight except to say that I remember when they were announced in 2014 and "shipping" January 2015!

    A friend of mine got frustrated waiting and installed the Subgravity BMCL kit on his Prism 2 and likes them.
    I feel this might be be a better option for people waiting on Hollis for anything..
