    There is a reason to have local distribution. Are you really going to want to ship stuff across the Atlantic every time you have an issue or need to get more kit? The customs hassle alone makes that silly, then there is USD vs EURO. Eastern Europe is making/rebadging plenty of equivalent kit.

    Being from Eastern Europe myself, I'd take Chinese kit over it any day. Unless you personally know the muthafacturer and are living within the shooting distance of them -- then you can get together over a beer and work out ypur issues with their kit to the mutual satisfaction. Usually.

    well, I hope to be a distributor for Deep 6 when I open up my dive shop in Greece. It just has to make economic sense for Deep 6 and their customers.

    The Seac looks pretty good as long as a GF high of <85 is OK, manufactured in Italy. We'll have to see how the Atmos Mission One from Taiwan does. Very attractive with custom GFs. Of course, what will Deep 6 reveal soon?

    We may be getting there. I keep thinking, I paid just $400 for my Nitek Q before DGX went out of stock. It was a great way to learn Buhlmann
