About Scubapro MK17/C300 Regulator Yoke, Black

The Mk17 First Stage Regulator is the perfect choice for the recreational diver who wants the advantage of a diaphragm first stage for use in temperate waters. Diaphragm-based first stages are environmentally sealed so that water cannot enter the inner mechanism. The Mk 17 also incorporates a Dry ambient pressure chamber, providing better performance in cold water than any other diaphragm regulator. Bearing in mind that regulators generate temperatures as low as minus22°F (-30°C) due to the incredibly fast moving air and the pressure drop involved, it is imperative that sensitive moving metal parts avoid contact with extremely cold water or debris. Therefore, diaphragm first stages have been the favored choice of cold-water divers and those working in contaminated or muddy water. SCUBAPRO diaphragm first stages feature balanced technology and are packed with patented features resulting in ultra fast flow to the second stage on demand and a fantastic overall performance.

The MK17 first stage's streamline body is constructed of machined marine-grade chromed brass. The MK17 has a balanced diaphragm to offer you peace of mind withits smooth breathing mechanisms and maximum performance that don't diminish as your tank's air pressure changes. This first stage is available with a DIN or yoke configuration, making it ideal for divers around the globe. This first stage comes standard with the Thermal Insulating System (TIS), which keeps your first stage from freezing up and malfunctioning in cold water conditions. Additionally, its over-balanced diaphragm first stage design gives ultimate air flow to the second stage.

New for 2011, the C300 offers uncompromising breathing performance for avid recreational divers. The C300 is lightweight with an anti-scratch cover. The C300 allows all the adjustments options of a high-end regulator while remaining a mid-range system. Optimal Flow Design valve (OFD) is for reliable and high airflow. Due to the incorporation of new technology that improves work of breathingperformance compared to a classic downstream valve second stage.

The C300 has diver adjustable coaxial Venturi Initiated Vacuum Assist (VIVA) forpowerful inhalation assistance and prevention of free flow and a diver adjustable inhalation control for personalized breathing effort. A redesigned mouthpiece tube allows better exhaust airflow, and an anti-scratch cover keeps it looking good for many years of diving activities.

The C300 housing is a precision molded carbon fiber and techno-polymer material for durability and impact resistance. If you are diving mixed gas the C300 is nitrox compatible and up to 100% oxygen concentration. A sturdy super-flow hose with Kevlar lining for extra durability and flawless air delivery and comfortable when in use with its orthodontic mouthpiece makes the C300 the perfect choice for a primary second stage air source.

The Scubapro MK17/C300 Regulator Yoke, Black is commonly used for Cold Water and more.

      Comments about Scubapro MK17/C300 Regulator Yoke, Black:

      I was looking for a 1st and 2nd stage regulator that would function well in cold and warmer waters without breaking the bank. I also wanted the regulater adjustable. This unit filled the bill. Have only used it once and was very impressed with its looks and the way it functions. The regulators air adjustment worked effortlessly. Looking forward to the diving ahead.

        I purchased this reg and took it on a trip, which included about 8 dives. The reg made a whistling sound after the 2nd dive. Also once out of water every time you breath out it makes a vibrating noise. After the trip I brought the reg in to be serviced under the warranty. I was told it was functioning corretly and the noises were just form the way the reg works. I have used several other scubapro regs in the past and always been happy with their product until now. I would not recommend this reg.

          For the record, this product registered on the ScubaPro website perfectly! Remember, you need to register both the first stage and the second stage separately using the provided warranty cards. The LP second stage hose is a bit shorter than my last one, but that helps cut down on entanglement risk. Came fully assembled, and I had it checked at my LDS, and they said it was good to go! Awesome product at a great price!

                I just bought two of these for my kids. I had no problem registering them for warranty coverage from Scubapro on line. Leisure Pro was listed among authorized Scubapro dealers on the website.

                Comments about Scubapro MK17/C300 Regulator Yoke, Black:

                Prior to buying this reg, I did a lot of research. From what I could find in a ton of magazines, the MK17/C300 rated extremely well. This is my first reg and I wanted the best I could get, without breaking the bank. I also wanted a reg that could perform well in a variety of different conditions and allow me to progress my diving experience/training quickly. I've done several dives with this reg so far and am really impressed. Breaths easy, remains dry, comfortable...all the qualities I'd heard about Scubapro. The only down side, which I haven't gotten a response on yet, is if the lifetime parts warranty is honored. I heard it wasn't from a local diveshop, but called Leisurepro (LP) prior to buying and they said yes. I also checked the Scubapro website and it said internet purchases are honored, as long as they are from an authorized dealer. So I checked and Scubapro has LP listed as an authroized dealer, so I made the purchase. Once I received the reg, I attempted to register it with Scubapro; however, upon submitting the info, I got an e-mail from Scubapro saying they could not register it at that time. I e-mailed Scubapro and have yet to receive a response. So check into this before buying... Other than that, it's a great reg!

                Questions about this item:

                Da Z  I am thinking about purchasing this combination, now that is listed again. However, I would like to know more about the "whistling" I have read about and the ease of breathing. I dive in cold water (lakes and rivers) 40 degrees and warmer, up to 110ft., as part of the local Rescue Squad. Is the whistling and ease of breathing a problem?
                Steve S  I have not heard of any problems like that. This is a very nice and rugged reg.
                Shopper  I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one? I see the MK17/c300 well-reviewed, but no longer listed on the ScubaPro website. They now pair the MK11/C300 and MK17/A700. Any ideas?
                JOSEPH B  I bought it because I have had previous experience with Scubapro and because it has a predive setting to prevent freeflowing. I also like the fact that you can adjust the breathing resistance. I felt it was a good value. After using it, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
                Shopper  Eventhough this is better for cold water, can it be used in warm water also? And anyone know if Scubapro will honor the warranty on the parts if bought online from L.P.? Thanks
                David R  Yes, it can be used in warm water as well and we are authorized dealers for Scubapro so you'll have the full warranty with us.
