Average Customer Review: based on 3 reviews.Rating: good deal for a "demo" regulator
I am interested in this regulator . Does this regulator have a combo with an octopus ? Which octopus would you recommend with this regulator . I dive in the Caribbean , not more than 100" and I am advanced certifies and not about to do Nitrox.
I am wanting to purchase a regulator. Which one would you recommend for commercial fishing purposes since there seems to be plenty on the market (not interested in the octopus). It would be used during winter months. Thank you! Amanda
Hello Amanda, the regulator I would suggest for you is the http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-35/033168/XS-Scuba-Seaair-Tri-Metal-Scuba-Regulator.html.
Hi, I just bought a unit of this Rover 2S and it was disappointing as when I brought it to a dive shop to check, and it was found leaking air! I am planning to return it but its gonna incur me another round of expensive international air freight. There was a sticker that printed that the Reg was tested for safety. May I know if all your regulators were properly tested before shipping out? Otherwise how did this ever happen? It could have been serious if I actually used it for my upcoming diving trip.
All regulators are tested by their respective manufacturers prior to shipping to dealers. This is a normal procedure. Any regulator can still have a minor leak. This is typically a very minor adjustment in the second stage and is quickly and easily fixed by any qualified repair technician. If one cannot be found, the item can be returned for repair/replacement under the terms of the manufacturer''s warranties.
416220 - Rover 2S
Reliability, light weight and simplicity
• Light weight, sturdy and compact first stage
• Mid-size second stage
• Ideal for Diving Centers
The Rover 2S is an excellent choice for intensive rental use in the Diving Centers and for all divers who want reliability! The new R2S first stage is the evolution of the piston regulator. A sandblasted finish to increase scratch resistance. The protection cover is designed to allow the installation of an RFID chip for rental use managed by dedicated PC software. Easy and reduced maintenance for INT and DIN version.

Dynamic Flow Control: Minimizes intermediate pressure drop during inhalation thus maximizing gas delivery, especially under extreme conditions. The DFC system (Mares patented) minimizes the pressure drop that occurs in all regulator first stages when the diver inhales. This phenomenon is even more pronounced as depth increases and when airflow demand from the regulator rises.
The DFC system is an exclusive system, unique on the market, that operates in relation to the diver's actual air demand, independent of depth and tank pressure.
The DFC system uses the Venturi Effect, optimizing the regulator's sensitivity and minimizing inhalation resistance, especially during dives in extreme conditions.
Fluid Dynamic Deflector: Receives and properly directs the airflow from the bypass tube to the mouthpiece.
Mesh Grid: Patented design which reduces the impact of water flow onto the second stage diaphragm, thus eliminating free flows even in strong currents.
Ultralight Techno Polymer: Abrasion resistant and affordable, ideal for diving in warm and moderate water temperatures.
Vortex Assisted Design: The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, for very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths.
The air coming from the LP-hose passes through the second stage control valve and is conveyed directly to the mouthpiece through the by-pass tube (Mares patented). In the mouthpiece connector, the airflow creates a swirling action, or “vortex”. The core of the vortex is a low-pressure area, which, during inhalation, helps to hold down the second stage diaphragm, thus markedly increasing regulator sensitivity. The decisive advantage of the VAD System lies in the precision of its control. The VAD supplies the inhalation effort with just the intensity required.
Another advantage of the VAD system is related to the bypass tube, through which most of the air is delivered. In cold water diving, this system prevents ice crystals (which can be generated by the expansion of humid air in cold temperatures) from interfering with the proper operation of second stage components.
