    This is a fantastic regulator that is both bulletproof and simple in design (K.I.S.S.). I have been diving since 1985 and own many different regulators. I’ve owned Dacor Pacers, US Divers Conshelf (another bulletproof design), Scubapro MK10 G250, MK20 D400. This is the regulator I choose in the most difficult conditions. It is the only regulator I trust for are annual new years dive in Lake Michigan and under the ice in quarries. I own two different generations of this regulator and both work very well but the newer design is more comfortable with its low profile design. Sure the Scubapros I own are better performers at depth but I had one freeze up on me and in cold water. The moisture retention fins work very well at keeping your breathing comfortable. “Back in the day” a lot of regulators were made out of brass so moisture retention was not that big a deal. I recommended this regulator on the grounds that it can be used below the Polar Ice Caps and equally as well in the Grand Bahamas. A regulator for all environments!

    I have been diving for 28 years. I recently purchased this product based in part on the representation that it had five LP ports and two HP ports. When I received the actual device, it became clear that there were two "proprietary" PL1 ports which had, according to Sherwood's literature, supposed advantages of providing more air from the tank under certain specifically delineated circumstances. What was wholly unclear was whether one could use these ports as industry standard LP ports. Needless to say, connecting the wrong hose (be it from a BCD inflator hose, a depth gauge/dive computer or an octupus) to the wrong regulator port is a dangerous proposotion to put it mildly. This [...] regulator interjects confusion by shipping with a 12 page user manual that spends most of its time pronouncing the boilerplate puffery about how dangerous diving is, and precious little time about the technical intricacies of the regulator itself. I would steer clear of the device.

        Comments about Sherwood Maximus Regulator,:

        This is by far the best reg I've ever used! Its fully adjustable for various depths, I NEVER have dry mouth, and no jaw fatigue. I LOVE the underarm hose set up because it makes me more compact for tight places. If you don't like an underarm set up, I wouldn't go with this reg, but if you're never TRIED an underarm set up, I highly recommend it! This is such an awesome reg, I won't dive with anything else!

              Great breather that matches its reputation. Really like the underarm hose routing so there is no pulling on regulator and absolutely no jaw fatigue. I clip the hose to my bc to minimize profile and can easily find and retrieve the 2nd stage. Very happy with my choice of this regulator.

              Cindy A  Do you happen to have the weight in lbs for the first & second stage with hose? I am in need of replacing my old 20 yr old Maximus which I dearly love & hope this one is a little lighter.
              JOHN L  Sorry . . . I have since upgraded to an Aqualung. Was never quite happy with this reg at depths.
