    Since day one I have had issues with the reg. free flowing. While I still have to see if it can be fixed, I can say that it is not easily fixed or adjusted as other more experienced divers have pointed out to me in attempts. Apparently other regs are far easier to take apart for cleaning and adjustments and this is a set back with this reg. especially since it free flows... I brought it to the attention of an instructor this past weekend who told me it is a common problem with the rebels, which is why his shop did not sell many... If you are having the item shipped I would not recommend it, but since it will be replaced if it is defective, by leisure pro, if the inconvienance of needing to exchange it if possible, is not as difficult (I'm in Australia), I would otherwise recommend it. It does not make my jaw hurt, is light, easy breathing...the free flow aside, I have only good things to say about it. For the price it would otherwise be good, just hope that you don't get a lemon.
