    How many models of Conshelves are out there? I've only heard of Conshelf XIV and Conshelf 22. Are there other Conshelf models out there?

    I know that there are alot fo them in circulation around here. If they weren't an arm and a leg to service they would be great regs. (they still are though). If they have the env. kit on them though they can skip some years for service of the first stage.

    I'm still using a Conshelf XIV(?), built in 1974. Great reg, breathes well, hasn't failed me yet. Rescudiver009 is right about the first stage. I take it in every year for servicing but most times nothing needs to be done with it.

    I have used a US Divers SE3 regulator for several years. The first stage is almost identical to that of my Conshelf XII. The SE3 costs about $75 to service, which includes the octo and guages. There is no reason for me to switch regulators.

    After a rebuild, I plan to use the XII in cold water.

    Are there any photos on the web for the abovesaid models? Just being very curious of how the look and perform like. Is the Lengend LX performing better than the Conshelf or the pther way round?

    I routinely see Conshelf XII's and XIV's in addition to the newer variants come through the shop for service. Essentially the major difference bewteen models is the port arrangements with some differences in the number of Lp ports and hose sizes. Internally they are essentially identical and take the same annual service kit.
