    My Ex would ask how many regulators I needed. I never had that answer. So I am curious as to how many others have and your favorite of them. I have 7 and my favorite that I use is my T2x. But I do have a Black Pearl in the box and just cant bring myself to use it...YET.. someday I will.

    4 First Stages
    5 2nd Stages.

    Hmm let me think...

    2 x XTX 200 1st & 2nd (Back Gas Regs)
    1 x TX 50 1st & 2nd (Deco Reg)
    1 x Aqualung Calypso 2nd stage only
    1 x ScubaPro MK18: still in box as I need to get in O2 cleaned.

    All the above are DIN as there is no other fitting worth using IMHO. ;)

    Atomics T2 & B2, Apeks Black Pearl, and Aqualung legend LX. Use all of them, but constantly go back to T2 because of weight. Of course all in Din.

    Four sets of Apeks.

    Two sets of Sherwood.

    One US Divers.

    My wife doesn't ask how many sets of regs I need and I don't ask how many pairs of shoes she needs.

    Hmmm, counting only fully assembled, dive ready, compete reg sets (single tank diving):

    (2) Apeks XTX 200s (yoke, although have DIN conversion kits on hand for them)
    (1) Atomic M1 (DIN with Titanium yoke adapter/sealed)
    (1) Atomic T2 (DIN with Titanium yoke adapter/sealed)
    (2) Aqualung Titan LX (1-yoke/ 1 DIN with Titanium yoke adapter/enviro-sealed)
    (1) Mares Ruby (yoke, upgraded to dry-sealed 1st-stage, tri-material HP 'seat')
    (1) Mares MR16 Voltrex (DIN with yoke adapter)
    (1) Poseidon Jetstream (DIN with yoke adapter)

    Add for double tank diving:

    (4) Poseidon Jetstreams (DIN with yoke adapter)

    Add for ongoing 2011 reg projects:

    (2) Aqualung Titan LX (presently yoke) in the middle of assembling all the components to build them up to complete reg sets (already have some MIFLEX, cold-water kits, DIN kits, one Apex Egress octo, some SS clips, Seacures, SPG's....still needing more SS clips/MIFLEX/ Atomic swivel hoses.)

    ....and I'm not going to bother counting my twin hose vintage regs, and some surplus Poseidon and Mares regs/components in storage or for sale.

    My main focus for 2011 is no more regs (stop the madness!) but upgrading more existing units with more Atomic Cobalts.

    1 Royal Aqua Master - 2 stage balanced regulator
    1 Scuba Pro MK 7, adj 109
    2 U S divers Aquarius matching, set for twin 50's

    Thats what I started out with. Now I have scuba pro regs many of them.

    I do have an atomic, OMS, beachuet, seaquest, sherwood, oceanreef full face mask.

    I have gotten rid of alot of reg sets that I have gotten and practice rebuiling them, parts hard to find.

    Now I have sets for twins, single tanks, deco stages, o2 stages, pony bottles.

    I have over 2 dozen that I use, Thats enough.




    Happy Diving
