About Cressi Start-Er Package

The XS Compact AC2 Regulator is an exceptionally dependable non-balanced Flow-by-Piston designed 1'st stage Regulator that is a great choice as a new divers rig, or for use as a stage bottle regulator system. The 1'st stage has 1 HP port and 4 LP ports, and is made from Marine Grade Chromed Brass for long life and durability. A conical filter is used which has greater surface area for higher air flow characteristics through the 1'st stage regulator.

The XS Compact Second-Stage housing is made of durable non-corrosive hi-tech polymers, and has a dependable downstream demand valve mechanism. The flow of air is channeled to the mouthpiece by injection, creating a VENTURI effect enhancing the performance. The 2nd stage comes with a flow deviator that acts on the VENTURI effect, with dive/pre-dive adjustment function. Large soft purge cover allows easy clearing of 2'nd stage and a comfortable silicone mouthpiece.

The Cressi Mini-Console 2 is a Small Compact Console that houses the Cressi Mini Pressure Gauge and a new, Small, Analog Depth Gauge. The Depth and Pressure Gauges have Chrome Plated Brass Cases and the Depth Gauge is a Diaphragm Membrane Actuated Design. All the Instruments have a Large Circular Easy-to-Read Scales.

At the end of the Console, there are two Eyelets for Fastening the Instrument to the BCD or Harness with a Clip or Lanyard.

The Luminescent Face of the 230' Depth Gauge, the first 40' of Depth Readings are in 10' Increments, (which correspond to the area of decompression stops), and are Widely Spaced for Ease-of-Reading. For At-a-Glance Monitoring of Depth, the Face-is-Divided into 3-Different Colored Zones: Green up to 66', Light-Blue from 66' to 130' and Red from 130' to the end of the scale. The Instrument has a Maximum Depth Indicator that Stops on the Maximum Depth Reached during the Dive.

The Mini-Manometer Pressure Gauge Luminescent Dial reads from 0 to 5000 psi. Like the Depth Gauge the Instruments Face is divided into three different Colored Zones: For At-a-Glance Monitoring of Air the area from 600 psi and below is Highlighted-in-Red with a Solid-Bar and Red Stripes. If Gauge is used on Deeper Dives, the Red-Scale Extends and fades to 1,300 psi, this provides for Added-Reserve-Air Indication. From 600 to approximately 3,000 psi is Green and from 3,000 to end of scale is Blue.

The Front Glass Lens is a Pressure Relief Valve. In the event of a sudden Increase-in-Pressure inside the Instrument, the Glass-Rises-Slightly, allowing the Excess-Pressure to Escape. Pressure Gauge is equipped with a 7/16" Threaded High Pressure Hose.

        Comments about Cressi Start-Er Package:

        I use the gear that I bought for use in a dive team that I have joined through my law enforcement job. I have no previous experience with diving and therefore I had no personal equipment. This is a quality and an economic solution to my lack of gear.

        Very easy to use. Went pool dive to test it out after putting the regs together. No real good instruction on how to do that. Tested fine. Just got back from a 2 tank dive in Cozumel with this setup. First dive was 80ft, second dive was 60ft. Worked great. Would buy again.

          So far have just scoped this setup in the pool awaiting our trip to the islands. Everything went together well and performed as expected. It should be mentioned that LeisurePro was out my size of the BCD and substituted an Aeris BC of considerably higher value for no increase in my price. Way to go, LeisurePro!
