Does the job

By B G.

 -  Staten Island, NY, US

Good octo. Doesn't free flow and always works (I test it at depth on every dive). I didn't need an expensive one as it will only ever be used to get me to the surface in an emergency.

 

Great Piece of Equipment

By Deep D.

This equipment worked well and without problems. I used it in cold water, at altitude. It performed brilliantly.

The Prestige is a mid-size octopus with a stylish design, strengthened by technology to give steady, natural and effortless breathing. All Mares second stages are a reliable downstream valve design and offer the unique patented Vortex Assisted Design (VAD) system. The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low-pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.

Furthermore, the compact and ergonomic exhaust tee ensures superior hydrodynamic performance and reduced exhalation resistance. The mouthpiece is made of soft hypoallergenic silicone: limiting jaw fatigue and offering a secure fit even after very long dives. Mares Octopus Prestige incorporates the Fluid Dynamic Deflector, developed after in-depth studies and tests of fluid dynamics, 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. Mares developed the Superflex hose after many years of testing and research. The results achieved far surpassed the tests required by EN250. Hose is extremely light weight and exceptionally soft, guaranteeing the maximum freedom of movement and further reducing jaw fatigue. The regulator comes with a high visibility yellow cover and Superflex hose that is a 3/8" threaded high flow hose and is 39.4" (100 cm) in length. The regulators total weight is 13.33 oz. (378 g).

Could be better, but it works

Mares Prestige

By Shane S.

from Wake Forest , NC, US

Haven't used it yet, but looks good. I like that it came with a slightly longer hose than others I was looking at, and it's a flex rather than a rubber hose. Can't really go wrong with Mares.

 

Good octopus

By Benjamin H.

from Cottage Grove, OR, US

Good Octopus. Free flows sometimes... especially at first. Doesnt seem to free flow anymore now that it is broken in. I have around 30 dives with it.

 

Mares Prestige Regulator

By HAROLD H.

from Palm City , FL, US

I bought this as an octopus safe 2nd regulator. It works well and hope I don't need to use in an emergency

So far so good after 5 dives. I always test it and it works flawlessly as expected.

Used it for several minutes towards the end of dive (probably too little) but was working as desired.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Stephen W  matching to my reg
Shane S  I need to replace my octo, this seems well made, and has a longer hose than some other octos.
DOUGLAS W  Exceptional performance
MR A  Hi name is Bruno Andujar,I am Scuba Diver. I bought this item because the price and quality is good. I will use for my dive school and shop as well.
Ken G  Great second stage!
Shane W  I have a Atomic Z2X Reg and I am looking for a safe second... Which ones will work with my atomic first stage? Do you have any recommendations? I would like to stay inexpensive... Will the Mares MV and perstige work with my reg...?
ANDRES M  It work very well. I'm a commercial diver and mares regs are working horses. Most important,low price!
B JANE G  Most first stages are universal so it should fit. I have a ScubaPro and it works fine. I am unsure from your question if you are looking for a primary reg or just a backup octopus. This is unbalanced so I personnally wouldn't use it as a primary reg; it is strictly used as an octopus (backup) and will not breath as smooth as a balanced second stage at depth. However, as a backup it is great and you can't ever beat Mares quality. If you are looking for a primary second stage I would always recommend a balanced reg. Yes they cost more but are worth the money.
DOYLE D  The Mares Prestige is inexpensive and reliable. I have not have any issues with the reg. Connecting to your first stage should not be a problem. It ought to screw right in.
GARY H  Any second stage will work with your first stage. The LP ports are the same threading and diameter regardless of manufacturer. It's how you can buy after market hoses such as miflex. The intermediate pressure from your first stage should also be a relative constant compared to other first stages. Hope this helps. Blair
Shopper  What sort of temperatures is this octo best suited for?
LeisurePro S  50 F is the generally cut off for "cold water". 50F and above is fine for this octo.
