Apeks XTX50 second stage , DST first stage, matched up with a XTX40 Octopus. All hoses included.
The Apeks XTX50 XTX40 Regulator setis bulit strong to survive all diving conditions, be it from a shore, a RIB or a hard boat. From styling to internal and external build quality XTX regulators from Apeks are packed with features such as subtle chrome accenting to reversible hose routing. Apeks XTX regulators are designed to be as flexible as you are. The XTX40 Octopus is simple, lightweight, compact and designed for cold water use, to this end the XTX40 octopus compliments the XTX50 regulator excellently. The XTX50 XTX40 regulator set from Apeks is a simple, robust package that will give years of quality to service to the most demanding of divers.
All XTX regulators have reversible valve operation, allowing a service technician to route the hose from either the right or left hand side of the regulator. This greatly improves hose routing options, allowing a diver to more comfortably configure their regulator setup.
The reversible venturi system allows a diver to control the flow of gas through the regulator to improve freeflow resistance and breathing effort. The indexable venturi lever can act as a pre-dive switch, in the minus position the regulator will not freeflow when dropped into water or the entry phase of the dive. In the plus position the Venturi Assist improves breathing assistance. Due to the design of the Venuri Assist System it can be placed in the correct position depending on which side the hose is configured.
The Diver Changeable Exhaust (DCE) System allows the diver to choose between two exhaust tee's to make the second stage either more compact or to provide better dispersal of bubbles on exhalation. The larger exhaust reduces bubbles from entering a divers field of view whilst the smaller tee piece reduces the bulk of the second stage whilst reducing weight.
Pneumatically balanced design means that inhalation effort is reduced providing a more comfortable breath over long periods of time. Cracking resistance can be controlled to provide the perfect amount of breathing resistance and to reduce freeflows. An internal fine adjustment can be adjusted by an Apeks Service Technician to set the regulator up for minimal breathing resistance through a range of medium stage pressures.

I decided to go with a set of Apeks for 2 reasons, recommendation, and the service interval, and I'm not disappointed. I had a set of oceanics, which were pretty good, but even after servicing I was having free flow issues with both second stages, and the demand knob and Venturi lever were fiddly with gloves, the Apeks are fare more glove friendly, feel very solid and breathe like a dream, I've only done a couple of dives on them but I'm extremely pleased. The only minor gripe is that I have a 48 inch chest and the octo hose is about 8" short to make sharing a bit less "in your face" but that's just me being anti social!
