Now that it's the time of year for recreational divers to get some crays, I was wondering what kind of regs do you all own and how easy are they to use, breathe at deeper depths. I bought second hand regs from ebay from a guy in QLD for $550 a couple years back and was the best investment I made regarding diving.
 They are MARES proton ice regs and got a alt air source as the same one! They are a great first stage and second stage set up. So when anything goes wrong with the second stage, main reg, I'll just swap it over wuth the alt. air source reg, spare reg.
 I had them checked out and they haven't even been adjusted according to my local POM dive shop owner, Dolphin Dive in Welshpool. What do you use?

Top of the Range

Sherwood Magnum 2 - was top of the range when purchased in hmmm, 1990-1992??

Still works a treat too.

Mostly dive with Airdive now (hookah reg) - basic reg that hasn't changed since the late 60's.

Cheers Pete
