    Welcome to ScubaBoard RED6 and thanks for joining the forum.
    Many good regulators are available including ScubaPro, DeepSix, Atomic, and Sherwood among other ones.

    Don't rush into buying gear. Take your time.

    Welcome to Scubaboard! Lots of learning and information can be found here.

    Are you sure that you want to buy all of your gear even before you have taken your first lessons?

    Welcome, I agree with @Compressor about the gear. If you plan to learn how to do your own regulator service it doesn't matter so much what brand you buy. Most folks prefer to have their regulators serviced at their local shop, howe er. If that's your planned route for long-term maintenance, make sure you buy a regulator that your preferred shop will work on.

    Have fun and just concentrate on enjoying yourself and the learning will come easy. Most companies make good regs these days. I own a set of zeagle flathead 7 regs that I like but down the road I prob buy apek or posiden. But nothing wrong with any of the brands mentioned above. Happy diving and good luck.
