About Cressi Ellipse Titanium MC9 Regulator

The Ellipse Titanium uses an elliptical housing for the second-stage regulator which is made from hi-tech polymers and titanium. The use of titanium and the polymer create a very lightweight regulator. All the internal components of the Ellipse are a dependable high performance downstream valve design. Once the valve has open the air is channeled by injection to the liquid silicone mouthpiece creating a venturi-effect enhancing the performance. On the top of the housing there is a flow deviator that acts on the Venturi effect, with dive/pre-dive switch.

The Balanced 1st stage MC9 Hyper-balanced Diaphragm Actuated 1st stage has a lightweight body covered by a protective techno-polymer elastomer shell. Various parts of the 1st stage are made of lightweight titanium further reducing its weight. The regulator is equipped with four low pressure and two high pressure ports. Internally the 1st stage is coated with an anti-friction anti-corrosion material that reduces resistance and allows the critical components to move freely. This makes the components perform and last longer between annual servicing and increases performance.

Research on internal air passages and incorporating a special assist chamber has lowered the drop of intermediate pressure upon inhalation and has kept this drop at a minimum, guaranteeing higher performance in any situation. Hyper-balancing allows for an increase of the intermediate pressure at maximum depths and when experiencing low pressure in the Scuba cylinder, offering higher performance at maximum depths and during the ascent phase of the dive. Regulator weighs 31.8oz (901g) with the Hose, comes with an Owner's Manual and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

The Cressi Ellipse Titanium MC9 Regulator is commonly used for Cold Water, Warm Water and more. The Cressi Ellipse Titanium MC9 Regulator is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Beginner, Casual/ Recreational among others. The Cressi Ellipse Titanium MC9 Regulator is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Cressi Ellipse Titanium MC9 Regulator: Adjustable, Comfortable, Effortless breathing, Nitrox Compatible.

    I'm a new diver, just clocked around 20 dives. Previously I used a loan set of Scubapro S600/MK25 from my firend. While others said that scubapro is effortless breathing, I don't see such a big difference when compared with this cressi reg.

    There is one reason I like this better than the scubapro, it is that my air consumption is better??!?! Is that even possible?

    For my first 14 dives I had been using the scubapro reg, but more often than not, I will be low on air before the pre-determine dive time is up. However, in between these 14 dives, I get a chance to use a cressi reg and my air consumption is par with other divers doing the same dive.

    Thus, I bought this cressi reg and for my recent 6 dives, my consumption is on par with all other seasoned drivers. NO MORE LOW ON AIR AND PREMATURE ASCENT!!

    I had checked with other seasoned divers, they provide mixed conclusion on the possibility on air consumption using different reg. However, a point to note is that scubapro using piston designed 1st stage while cressi uses diaphragm.

    I tried breathing at different angle under water and I didn't experience any difficulty breathing. Max depth I went so far with this reg is 21m.

    While the titanium colour and slick design is very attractive, the finishing touches is not up to par. When I first receive my reg some time back, the titanium surface colour is not uniform, seems mildly corroded with dark patches here and there and the cut-out of the brand name CRESSI seems cheapo, poor workmanship.

    Overall I'm a big fan of the Cressi company. It makes quality products at a reasonable price. This reg, however, is just ordinary.

    The construction is fine (it looks durable and of quality materials)but breathing performance simply isn't there. I bought this reg while my wife got the Scubalab Gear of the Year Award winning Aeris AT600/Ion reg. Her's simply blew this out of the water during the 5 dives we tested these on in Cancun.

    If you simply want a well-constructed reg at a very low price, you've found it here. If you want a reg that makes breathing under water effortless, shoot for the Aeris or, if you're like me and determined to buy Cressi, splurge on the Scubalab Best Buy award winner MC-9 Ellipse Balanced instead.

      Comments about Cressi Ellipse Titanium MC9 Regulator:

      I tried others regs but this one is definetely the best. It looks extremely reliable, compact and lightweight. The only thing I've changed was the mouthpiece because it was a little bit small for me.

          I had been using a genesis regulator while getting certified. I read great things about the cressi brand and purchased this regulator. The price was great and I am overall extremely happy with it!!! The yoke valve is heavy but looks extremely durable which I like! I would recommend this to a friend without hesitation.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  is this regulator environmentally sealed?
            Kasia W  No, MC9 is not sealed. You will need to look at MC9-SC http://www.leisurepro.com/p-csbre9sc/cressi-ellipse-balanced-mc9-sc-regulator
            Aidan T  I know it sounds stupid. but what port is the HP and which is the LP? I'm assuming that the HP is the middle one but i don't want to risk it.
            DANIELE M  It is the middle one but in case you did not know, the HP ports and the LP ports are different size so there is no way you can make a mistake. Dan
            Jonnie s  Regarding the titanium MC9 Regulator - How many LP ports does it have ? - Can it be used for nitrox up to 40% - What's the performance difference between the titanium and steel (is it just weight ?) - Can Cressi regs be serviced in the US - is this reg suitable to dive to up to 40 Meters ?. (most diving to 30 meters) Thanks.,
            MIKE H  4 LP ports Nitrox to 40% = Yes Titanium vs steel - don't know Serviced in US - Yes 40 Meters - yes
