DGX Gears Regulators
DGX Gears brand D6 and XTRA regulators
Both the DGX Gears brand D6 and XTRA regulators are going to more than meet the needs of most divers but there are differences depending on the specific style of technical diving such as cold water or extreme depths.
The DGX Gears D6 Regulator is a "classic" basic time-tested design based on a balanced diaphragm first stage. The DGX Gears D6 second stage is pneumatically balanced for excellent breathing at depth and includes a user adjustable breathing resistance knob along with a venturi (Dive/Pre-Dive) switch for better flow control when needed and to reduce free flow upon initial entry. If you are seeking a reliable and easy breathing regulator for sport diving the D6 is a great value.
The DGX Gears XTRA Regulator is a more recent extreme-performance design based on a balanced piston first stage that includes an auto-closure that shuts the DIN inlet when not engaged on the valve, potentially avoiding accidental flooding. The XTRA 2nd stage is a balanced fully adjustable second stage featuring metal internal components and increased resistance to freezing when cold water diving that also delivers reduced inhalation efforts at depth. If you are seeking a top-shelf performance regulator for extended range diving without a "big name-brand" price, then the XTRA merits serious consideration.
