About Oceanic Delta 4 FDX10 Diaphragm Regulator with Environmental seal, Black with Swivel

This high performance regulator system pairs the Delta 4 adjustable Oceanic's easiest breathing second stage with the top of the line FDX10 first stage, featuring Oceanic's exclusive DVT

SECOND STAGE
Introduced in 1989, the Delta has been refined and updated over the years. The latest version, the Delta 4, is one of only two Oceanic second stages with AVS the Adjustable Venturi System. This allows the diver to adjust inhalation effort so the second stage won't freeflow during shore entries or long surface swims. Additionally, the Delta 4 has Oceanic's patented Dynamic Adjustment feature. This lets a diver set breathing resistance. The adjustment only needs to be made once; the Delta 4 maintains the setting no matter the depth of the dive.
The Delta 4's ABS/Polycarbonate housing and anodized aluminum cover ring are exceptionally tough. They weigh just 6.8 ounces and, along with orthodontic mouthpiece, produce minimal jaw fatigue no matter the length of the dive.

FIRST STAGE
The FDX10 offers a balanced diaphragm and is made of forged marine brass. It features DVT (Dry Valve Technology), an innovative design that keeps moisture and contaminants out of the first stage, even if you forget to put the dust cap on. This means internal components remain corrosion and bacteria free. It also means the FDX10 is excellent for ice diving (it won't freeze up) or diving in waters filled with contaminants or sediment (it won't corrode).
The DVT system helps keep air flow to the diver unrestricted. It starts to work as soon as the dive is over, before the regulator is even removed from the tank.
At 28 ounces, the FDX10 is one of Oceanic's lightest weight first stages. As is the Delta 4, it comes ready to use with air or nitrox mixtures up to 40 percent. Two high pressure and four low pressure ports assure a place for all your necessities and accessories. Due to MFG restrictions, this can be sold to the USA and Caribbean only.



The Oceanic Delta 4 FDX10 Diaphragm Regulator with Environmental seal, Black with Swivel is commonly used for Cold Water, Extreme Depths, Recreation, Warm Water and more.

Great overall reg. Very easy adjustments for ease of breath. The dry tech value is invaluable. Breathes the same at 35ft to 100+. Used it mainly in cold water dives in Lake Superior (coldest=43 degrees), but breathes the same in 80 degree water. Excellent reg and a definite must have!

I am very disappointed with this reg. I looked forward to a quality reg, but this one breathes wet. The deeper, the wetter. Also free flows at surface despite the pre-dive setting. Always had good luck with Oceanic in the past, not this time. Hopefully this is a fluke. I don't like to give bad reviews.

Comments about Oceanic Delta 4 FDX10 Diaphragm Regulator with Environmental seal, Black with Swivel:

Really nice once in the water, but free flows at the surface like crazy despite setting the pre-dive switch. You have to keep hold of it, and if like me you like to use your octo every now and then - it gets a little tricky. Having said that, very nice job.

    Comments about Oceanic Delta 4 FDX10 Diaphragm Regulator with Environmental seal, Black with Swivel:

    I've used a number of different regs and this one is either as good as and in most cases better than anything else I've tried. I compared it to an atomic and I don't see the point to paying that much when the Oceanic is just as good!

    At the most sensitive setting, you only need to take short little breaths and you get more than enough O2! The pre-dive switch works, I could just do without the knob!

    I love the first stage because it looks awesome! I find the cylinder style a little old and cheesy looking! The hoses are put exactly where they are supposed to be.

    I read one review on here about the reg making a strange noise! I heard it too and started looking for a whale... There are no whales in pools! Found out it was my reg making the noise. It only did it on the first two dives, but after that it stopped. I guess the moving parts just needed be worked a bit.

    The reg is super dry and really easy to purge! Even with little air in my lungs I was still able to fully purge in one quick exhale without using the purge button.

    The mouthpiece is nice and I got the swivel which is great for donning and doffing or looking around without getting jaw fatigue!

    I like this reg and probably wouldn't go with anything other than maybe a Zeagle; this is only because my other gear is Zeagle.

    Very happy!

      Comments about Oceanic Delta 4 FDX10 Diaphragm Regulator with Environmental seal, Black with Swivel:

      I replaced an Oceanic Omega II system two years ago and was pleasantly surprized at how much easier this breaths. Unfortunately, it freeflowed on me twice on a recent wreck diving trip in Tobermory Ontario with less than 40 degree F water temperatures. I switched the second stage back over to the old Omega II for the rest of the trip and had no problems. Another diver had a Delta 3 which is basically the same 2nd stage design without the swivel and the same thing happened. Surprized the Navy and NOAA rated it so high for extreme cold. The Omega II went 18 years without an extreme cold freeflow in temperatures as low as 34 degrees.
