Great purchase , happy with the process and price point

Compact, reliable, and performance are the key words for describing this new Mares first stage. Featuring the DFC system, it meets all divers' demands at any depth. The new valve guarantees longevity and advanced performance. A medium-size second stage is made of ultra-light techno-polymer. The large purge button is effortless to use while wearing gloves. The VAD system delivers excellent and natural breathing at any depth. The super-flex hose is light and flexible for maximum comfort.

The chrome plated marine brass first stage regulator is a balanced diaphragm design which is inherently environmentally sealed. The diaphragm membrane transmits the pressure changes to the internal mechanism eliminating the need for the surrounding water to enter the intricate mechanism. The benefit of this type of first stage design is that none of the internal parts are exposed to contaminants such as salt, sand, chlorine or pool acids. These environmental contaminants cause corrosion and mineral deposits to form on the internal mechanism deteriorating regulator performance. The Prestige15X uses A.C.T. Advanced Coating Technology. This patented technology created to optimize performance, safety and reliability. The valve is covered with a hard Polyurethane (PU) and the sealing surface is a layered with a soft PU for a perfect seal. Tri-material (brass, soft PU and heavy-duty" PU) reaches new levels of durability. The new valve is 600% more durable than its predecessor.

Another unique feature of the first-stage is the dynamic flow control (DFC). The DFC system minimizes the intermediate pressure drop during inhalation. The Prestige15X first stage guarantees a stable flow of air, even under extreme conditions. The First Stage is equipped with 4 LP ports with 3/8" and 2 HP 7/16" ports for attachment of a Pressure Gauge or Air Integrated Console.

The second stage Vortex Assist Design (V.A.D.) system: the air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low-pressure area in the center this keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, giving very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths. The second stage cover features the new "mesh-grid" system for water inflow and outflow, which provides a further performance improvement. The compact and ergonomic exhaust tee ensures superior hydrodynamic performance and reduced exhalation resistance. Mares Prestige second stage incorporates the Fluid Dynamic Deflector, which is engineered to receive and properly direct the airflow from the bypass tube to the mouthpiece. Combined with the VAD system it delivers very natural and effortless breathing. All enclosed in a lightweight Techno-Polymer housing. Regulator has the super flex hose. Hose is extremely light weight and exceptionally soft, guaranteeing the maximum freedom of movement and reducing jaw fatigue. Super flex hose has 3/8" Threads and is 31.5" (80 cm) in length. The regulator weighs 34 oz. (965 g).

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Consider another reg if you’re looking for long lasting quality.

I expected a higher quality regulator, but it is decent for the price. If you are looking for equipment that you will be keeping for a long time, I’d suggest spending a little more for something of higher quality.

This is a smooth breather. Solid construction. It compares well with my scuba pro Mk 16 550s

 

Great balanced regulator

This guy works much better than a lot of rental regulators I have been exposed to. Smooth easy breathing, no hard suction, no weird noises. 7 dives so far

Good basic reg

By Leon K.

A little resistance on the surface, but flows easy at 10 ft and lower.

 

Great Regulator at its Price Point

By Sofio Z.

from Honolulu, HI, US

Purchased this item as a package, and have had only 4 dives with it so far since last year. I do a lot of shore dives and at my age and physical condition, I tend to use a lot of air fighting the surf and need a regulator with an adjustable venturi switch. This one doesn't have it. Its use is more in line with my boat dives at which it performs impeccably.

 

My Leisure Pro experience.

By Carl S.

from Pinellas Park, FL, US

For the price point I used, this equipment is everything I could ask for. Great quality and value. Thanks Leisure pro.
