Hi, the only thing That I would say is try before you buy. I had an Ocean reef full face mask and just could not get on with the drawbacks although they do have advantages. if you would like a chat mail me back with a phone number and I will call you.

thanks for the information ...all noted. I have since purchased a mask. dived in Devon waters on several occasions with it. you are correct in tha need for a spare mask but i found the bail-out method very easy to master, even removing the spare mask and replacing the full face ...a little more challenging and unlikely to be needed. I found air consumption to be the same in fresh water but I use about 10bar more than normal in salt. I like the fact that you have a warm face, you can breath thru your nose and you dont get half a pound of cack on your cheek when you get out.
On the whole i would say I would only dive in native waters now with the full face ... as for the Red Sea.... back to basics of course!!

I have used many full fase masks but the best I found is the AGA/interspiro diveator Mk1 or2. Any good 1st stage can be used and the standard comms also work well. Mk1s can be set for demand or positive pressure & Mk2 is positive only as standard. I hope this helps. Gary

Hi I have had some experience with the Neptune 2 from ocean reef I like it very much it offers grate visibility and the thing I like most about it is you have nothing in your mouth and you can breath through your Nose however I my be selling mine because I find the purge button sometimes gets stuck because of sand getting in-between it.

I have contacted the supplies of the mask and they say they have had no other complaints of this nature

Anyway all in all a grate mask some people question me to why I am using it in the begging I just fancied having a go with one but I now love it and wouldn’t dive with out it and would strongly recommend it to eny one

I my be selling mine though because of this miner problem I am having withit I am currently getting this fixed and when I am ready to sell I will notify you if you are interested.

So fare as communication goes I have not tried yet.

Hope this helps

If you have any more questions pleas reply to this message
