Maybe someone that works on regs can chime in on this one.

All the different regs out there: Scubapro, beucheat (spelling), Cressi, Aqua Lung, Atomic, Tusa, Aeris, Dacor, Oceanic, Poseidon, Apeks, Sherwood. There must be more I left out that I'm not thinking of.

What's what? who makes what for who?

I heard that scubapro is not what it used to be after 2 guys left to go start Atomic.

I heard that Aqua Lung bought Apex and now their regs are better than ever.

I heard a buddy of mine say that his $179.00 Titan out performed his
$465.00 MK25-G600 and now he uses his scubapro on his pony.

Another buddy of mine was using an Apeks reg on a tech dive and it almost killed him when it began to violently freeflow. Turned out the intermediate pressure soared to 270 lbs.!!

Why does the Aqua Lung Conshelf only have 3 low pressure ports?
That means I can't use it for my drysuit.

Which reg is the best work horse, the simplest to work on and the best overall value for the quality.

I scored an old Dacor for free from some guy. I think it is an old 950? and to tell you the truth it breaths just as nice as my MK20/G200B.

I have a sherwood Brut that I bought new. It was cheap and I got it to use on a back up pony bottle and that is where it belongs. Either as a last resort bailout reg or in a pool for a student, other than that it is like breathing through a straw.
