  • Sylvia:

    My son is certified up to Nitrox and has his Rescue Diver cert. He is taking classes in oceanography and ocean related studies. He has his own tank, BCD but never had his own regulator. Its a tight Christmas financially - and we would like to give him a regulator but cant afford too much. What is the best regulator in the lower end that could last him a few years until he might upgrade? What should we be looking for?

ALPHA 8 
Professional performance, entry-level price. If you believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice performance for price, the Alpha 8 is for you. The Alpha 8 is the top-performing regulator in its class, and one of the most affordably priced regulators you can buy.

The best price-to-performance ratio in its class
Designed to perform to the U.S. Navy's Class A standards at 198 feet
Inexpensive to maintain

Best Price / Performance ratio in its class
Not only is the Alpha 8 an economical buy for the diver on a budget, it is just as inexpensive to maintain. Standard replacement parts can cost as little as half of those in other regulators in its class.

Patented orthodontic mouthpiece
To further reduce jaw fatigue, the Alpha 8 features a patented Orthodontic Mouthpiece, designed to accommodate the natural overbite of the human jaw.

Nitrox Compatibility
The Alpha 8 is classified as being suitable for use with nitrox breathing gas mixtures containing up to 40% oxygen by volume without the need for special preparation, cleaning or component parts.

SP-5 Sport Piston First Stage
The SP-5 offers all divers the opportunity to own a top-performing regulator at an unbeatable price. Repeatedly rated as the best in its class, the Alpha SP-5 exceeds both Navy Class A and European CE standards. The Alpha SP-5 may have been the first regulator you ever used due to its widespread use in rental and resort operations.
