    From what I have gathered over time (I may also be completely wrong), that wing, be it Oxy, DGX, or VDH, is made in Schenectady, New York...

    Subtle tweaks by each seller for their brand.

    All three are excellent. I have not used the DGX one as I first had OxyCheq, and had gotten the VDH when they came out. Given a choice, supporting VDH is important to me as he really serves a niche I need to keep going.

    Okay, if we’re gonna get all pedantic, I know Deep6 doesn’t “make” or “manufacture” their own regs but they “provide” or “designed” one for DGX. I also wrote Apex instead of Apeks in the other post just to save another correction.

    Apeks uses proprietary dump valve, that crossed it off my list, I believe mares does too.

    Apeks has a proprietary power inflator ( and hose), too. Bigger diameter.

    Long time, hope you're doing well.

    I would have thought the inflator could be swapped out for a generic one but guessed the dump valve cannot.

    As for many, this year took some nasty turns, but am alive and kicking, thanks.
