About to buy my second one

Everybody wants to know would you recommend the product. Well, I bought this regulator for me a year and half ago, and I am about to buy a second one for my son. Our diving is kept to recreational depths and we stay in relatively warm water, but works great for our purposes.

DUD! Terrible Purchase

I purchased this product and upon receipt took it to my local dive shop for inspection and service. I also purchased the Alpha 8 Sport Octo at the same time (used). The main reason I took it for service was to have them look over the used Octo. At the shop, my service technician didn't like the sound of the second stage primary breather.

DUD! Terrible Purchase

By

from Dallas, TX, US

I purchased this product and upon receipt took it to my local dive shop for inspection and service. I also purchased the Alpha 8 Sport Octo at the same time (used). The main reason I took it for service was to have them look over the used Octo. At the shop, my service technician didn't like the sound of the second stage primary breather. It kind of rattled inside the housing. The first stage also barely tested within spec for pressure (high side). When connected to a full tank of air, the secondary made kind of a burping, sputtery type sound of its own accord and had a light free flow. I returned it and am awaiting a full refund. Meanwhile, I placed an order for the Aqua Lung Legend LX Supreme which I tested in open water over the weekend and am in love with it. You get what you pay for, I guess. I read tons of excellent reviews on what has been characterized as a very solid, entry level, basic reg. I hope I just got a dud, but I must give it a very bad review based on my experience. I kept the used Octo and have now tested it in open water and it breaths fine, though it is apt to free flow if you don't hold it mouth side down doing giant stride, but that is not unusual. Note, if you do buy the Alpha 8, it only has one HP port so if you ever plan on needing multiple ports this is not for you, e.g. if you may want to use a transmitter plus a backup pressure gauge.

Great Product

I am first time Scuba Diver, so the only thing I have had different was the equipment for training, and this item operated just as good if not better that what I starrted with.

Good regulator

Have used this reg for about 20 dives now ranging from warm tropical water to fairly cold lakes(40-45F) and have yet to have a problem with it. It breaths easily and isn't too heavy.
