Is this model newer than Seacure Hi-Flow?
BRIAN G Hey Kavin,
The newest model, the X TYPE, offers a totally new X shaped profile, which significantly reduces bulk, virtually eliminates gagging and improves molding by earlier engagement of the teeth during closure. The new X TYPE also includes an improved one piece molding and sealing attachment with a bite limiter which eliminates the possibility of over closure during the heat molding process. Over closure reduces air flow during diving. The attachment is used in the molding process and then to keep debris out of the regulator.
My 2 cents--much small than the seacure I purchased 6 years ago. Have not used it yet, but fit is nice. Brian
LAUREN S I own both the Hi-Flow and the X Type SeaCure mouthpieces. I bought the Hi-Flow about 2-3 years ago and the X Type about 1-2 months ago. The molding instructions of the Hi-Flow lists 3 U.S. patents, while the X Type instructions list the same 3 patents PLUS a patent pending. Therefore, I would say that the X model is newer that the Hi-Flow. Both work great and make my diving experience MUCH more comfortable and "seacure".
Hope this helps.
