    I learned that I hate computers that keep locking up on me and deleting what I just spent 1/2 hour writing up ---- that get sent into cyberspace and lost forever. I will try again.

    Thank you again Andy Nelson. It took a quick 3 days [west to east coast] to get the longer wires. I installed them and they make a huge difference. I can equalize easily now. Great customer service!

    Did your mask come with a first stage? If not, what first stage regulator are you using?

    I don't think any of the Guardians come with first stages. At least ours didn't.

    I'm considering getting my own for work but they're expensive, even more so when you add a Buddy Phone.

    Hi JohnnyC,

    You are correct - our products do not include 1st stages. In fact, OTS does not sell 1st stages of any kind.

    If you are budget conscious and are looking for a FFM, you may want to take a look at our Spectrum Full Face Mask. It is about half the price of the Guardian FFM, allows you to use your standard 2nd stage and you are able to reach in and pinch your nostrils to equalize. It may be something worth looking at. They have been a huge hit since we debuted them a few months ago...so much in fact we are currently back ordered on black / clear lens and black / coated lens, but are expecting more in the coming months. We do currently have both blue skirt versions in stock.

    If you are interested in learning more, you can read more about it here : Spectrum Full Face Mask | Ocean Technology Systems and here : Shop | Ocean Technology Systems

    Sorry for calling it a reg. I was referring to the 2nd stage that comes w/ the Guardian. The SGR-1 is a 2nd stage also that will fit the Guardian. No ist stages come w/ the Gurdian.

    Andy,

    Just took a look at the Spectrum, nice. A few questions- I see it is communication compatible, is that for hardwire comms or just wireless? Any public safety dive teams using them? The reason I ask is I currently use an Interspro AGA and have had difficulty getting a seal since I lost some weight. Was thinking about getting the Guardian but the Spectrum really interests me. I plan on using it for public safety diving only. Thanks in advance.
