Reg suggestions

My current first stage and reg are needing a service but as old as they are, I'd rather put the money of a service into getting a new set. I've been looking at a couple scubapro models in the 3-400 dollar range. Any other suggestions for that price range. Will be used on FL east coast in depths up to 170'.

Re: Reg suggestions

Zeagle, dive rite and hollis should all have something in that range.

Re: Reg suggestions

I'm still using my MK V Scubapro "old school" chrome over brass that I bought in 1973. Free parts. And it has been put thru the wringer. Tried the newer plastic ones and feels like it's bumping my mask since it's so light. Never could get used to em.

Re: Reg suggestions

Check out the Apex AT20. It has specs that are comparable to regs that are far more expensive. I've been using one for years and it's never let me down.

Re: Reg suggestions

I use a Sherwood Oasis. Love it! It was around $400. Does a very good job of eliminating that dryness feeling I have gotten with other regs. I have a dive buddy that uses the Apeks AT20 as stated above and never heard any complaints.

Re: Reg suggestions

A little bit above that range but I've been happy with the apeks xtx50. Before that I used a mares abyss, and a scubapro a700, both were great regs but I wasn't impressed with the build quality of the scubapro considering the price.

Re: Reg suggestions

I'm surprised no one mentioned HOG... great regs for the $. I have two HOG reg sets, and no complaints.
