I'm looking into buying a set of regs and set my mind on Scubapro as these are found even in the most remote places.

My initial idea was to get an Mk2 and R290 combo as there are as hard as nails and also pretty cheap.

Then I started wondering if this regulator will actually do. I mean, will I grow tired of tractor qualities of such a reg?

Then I started considering the Mk25AF/S600 or R380, obviously much more expensive and loads more features and probably more comfortable.

This is great but am I loosing some of the ruggedness of the initial combo. If something goes wrong, can I sort it on the spot fairly easily? Etc.

I guess, I'be got to figure out these issues myself but wanted to hear the thoughts of other people.

Hi John I`v been diving for 20 years and own a few regs also being an instructor I have a lot of exp of others divers using different makes modles of regs over the past fifteen years I have use apeks regs they are reliable and good down to 50+ metres. I tryed a scubapro reg last mth but was glad to get rid of it, and got another apeks for my daughter in my opinion they are very hard to beat for use and value, try www. dive booty.co.uk for prices befor you buy any dive gear they are a comparison site well worth a look Paul

Thanks a lot Paul for your reply.

I might consider Apeks as an option.

I guess the choice for me would be APX40 or 50...

Anyone know what are the differences?

Hi the difference between the atx 40 and atx 50 are very little the 50 has a cracking control ( you can adjust the amount of effort requird to take a breath I use tx50 they are only 10 more than the tx 40 the atx are more expensive and have an extra fine adjustment (service techniction only) at the second stage, but after talking to many other users I still prefer the TX40 and TX 50.
