About Oceanic EOS FDX10 DVT Regulator with Swivel

Every breath is a dream come true
For over 30 years, Oceanic's R&D group has taken advantage of new materials, development of rapid prototyping, advanced computer aided design systems, objective testing, and lots of open water dives in an effort to develop a regulator with the lowest measurable inhalation effort in order to provide air to a diver at the extremes of human capacity.

When engineering brought the near complete EOS in for conformational testing the results were so astounding, the laboratory stopped testing and performed a complete calibration of all instruments, and in re-testing the EOS was found to have a near effortless inhalation resistive effort on test after test. Perfect.

Comprised of precision-machined components and extensive research and design, the EOS regulator has achieved an incredible feat lifelike breathing. Oceanic's gifted team of design engineers has included effortless breathing, inhalation effort adjustments, and comfortable second stage swivels and orthodontic mouthpieces into a regulator that you can hold in the palm of your hand. This is far more than just another regulator in the eyes of the Oceanic team, this is a dream come true.

The FDX10 offers a Balanced Diaphragm and is made of Forged Chromed Marine Brass. The Balanced Diaphragm, First Stage Regulator is inherently Environmentally Sealed. The benefit of this type of First Stage design is that none of the Delicate Internal Parts are Exposed-to-Contaminants such as Salt, Sand, Chlorine or Pool Acids. These Environmental Contaminants can cause Corrosion and Mineral Deposits to form on the Internal Mechanism Deteriorating Regulator Performance. A Diaphragm First Stage Regulator requires Less-Maintenance then Regulators that allow the Contaminates to enter the Internal Mechanism.

The FDX10 features DVT (Dry Valve Technology). DVT takes keeping the Internal Components Clean of Contaminates to the Next-Level. DVT is an Innovative Design that keeps Moisture and Contaminants Out-of-the-First Stage, even if you forget to put the Dust Cap-On. Have you ever wonder why they call it a "dust cap" and not a Water Cap. DVT eliminates the possibility of Moisture entering the First Stage with a simple, yet ingenious design. No-Hassle, No-Worries. What about performance? DVT doesn't impact first stage performance even at 198' (60 meters) with just 200 psi (14 bars) in your tank. The result is an end to flooded regulators! Oceanic's exclusive DVT is designed to automatically eliminate moisture intrusion and contaminants from entering your breathing system. This means Internal Components Remain Corrosion and Bacteria Free. Amazing, Simple, Patented, and by the way, DVT is only available on Oceanic Regulators.

In addition the FDX10 First Stage Regulator has a Secondary Diaphragm to completely Seal-Off the Main Spring Cavity. A Sealed Balanced Diaphragm design; ENVIRO Kit and Patented DRT (Dry Regulator Technology) Isolate the Main Spring Cavities Internal Components from the Environment. 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 EOS Second Stage is a Phenomenal Breather allowing the diver Extensive Control over the Air Flow Profile at Any-Depth. The EOS comes with Oceanic's patented Dynamic Adjustment Technology, Diver Inhalation Effort Adjustment Controls, Dive/Pre-Dive Switch, In-Line Ball Swivel, 3/8" Threaded MAXFLEX 30" (76.2cm) Hose and a Super-Comfortable Orthodontic Mouth Piece to Reduce Jaw Fatigue.

The EOS/FDX10 combination is everything you need for a sublime breathing experience at any depth the EOS will perform with reliability, consistency and comfort and makes taking your favorite regulator literally anywhere, that much easier. The Regulator weighs 34.7oz (984g) without the Hose, is NITROX Compatible Up to 40% Out-of-the-Box, comes with an Owner's Manual and is covered by a 24 month limited warranty.

The Oceanic EOS FDX10 DVT Regulator with Swivel is commonly used for Cold Water, Extreme Depths, Warm Water and more.

    I bought this regulator last year just before a trip to Roatan and have put nearly 70 dives on it. This regulator is every thing that they say it is. The breathing is effortless and the swivel makes this the most comfortable regulator I've ever used. Hands down the best of the best and worth every penny I paid for it.

    this reg is great once you're breathing off it, but there's one big flaw: the hose is only 30" long. its just long enough to use comfortably. it makes for a slightly more streamlined package, but that causes other problems: it's really too short to share with a buddy - that means you shouldn't use it with a combo octo/inflater. that eliminates the streamlining advantage right there. also when you switch from a snorkel to your reg its harder to find (even with a sweep). replacing the hose isn't a option either - the hose and swivel are one unit that has a non-standard male fitting going into the 2nd stage. it you plan to never use a combo octo - it's a 5, otherwise don't bother

      Comments about Oceanic EOS FDX10 DVT Regulator with Swivel:

      FDX10 1st Stage w/DVT paired with the EOS 2nd Stage makes a world of a difference. I've been diving at least once a week over the past 3 years. I'm currently a Dive Master and have tried a dozen or so regulators. By far, this regulator represents effortless breathing so much, that I forget I'm not breathing surface air. The bit is very comfortable and never get jaw fatigue. From beginners to experts, this reg kicks butt!
      Another great feature is the short braided swivel hose. It is correct, that you can't just simply change out a hose, to something longer, but most divers prefer streamline. Why use a logger hose that only makes things more dangerous?

          Comments about Oceanic EOS FDX10 DVT Regulator with Swivel:

          Due to the swivel (which doesn't work well at all) you may only use Oceanic replacements - no braided hoses.
          DVT module in the 1st stage produces a massive screeching noise after servicing. I have been told "you need to let the spring wear in". I have done at least 30 dives with this reg and the problem still occurs. I have also been told that the spring needs to be lubricated to stop the screeching, suggesting that qualified oceanic servicing people don't know what they're doing.

          Comments about Oceanic EOS FDX10 DVT Regulator with Swivel:

          This reg delivers everything that the manufacturer says it does and more... The FDX10 1st Stage w/DVT paired with the EOS 2nd Stage is so balanced that you will think you are breathing on the surface even though you are at 100 feet... The dive/pre-dive switch is large and easy to adjust AND it works as designed... You just make sure that you set it to pre-dive before you hit the water and once you're under, roll it to dive and you're done... The breathing effort is controlled by the easily gripped knob and once you have it set to your preference, just leave it there, no need to fiddle with it, unless you want to... As for free flow issues, well, I had to make mine free flow by turning it mouthpiece UP on the surface... I just had to move the venturi switch to pre-dive and the free flow stopped immediately... The DVT feature on the FDX10 helps to keep the "cooties" out and the internal surfaces clean and safe from contamination... Thanks to Oceanic for making a fine, completely adjustable regulator that will serve me in my profession for a good, long time..!

              The EOS is the best breathing regulator I have ever owned, and I have been diving for about 40 years. Additionally, you can't beat Oceanic's reputation for quality and service.

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              Steve K  Only used on 3 dives so far, but the regulator has been great. I would definitely recommend.
              Shopper  !) Does it come assembled? 2) How long are you having this sale?
              Frank L  This comes with the Second Stage hose connected to the first stage. The sale price won't last for very long.
              Shopper  Will a miflex hose work with this reg?
              KENNETH D  That depends on the threaded connector on your hose. The oceanic swivel connects to a standard reg hose, so if your current reg fits your miflex, the EOS should as well.
