Rating: Apeks XTX50 Regulator 2013
Reviewer: Andrew M B., - View all my reviews
Seems like a good reg. Easy to breath, did not free flow with the valve setting in either position. Did not really detect any difference when adjusting either of those two knobs.

Questions and Answers for Apeks XTX50 Regulator:
Which 1st stage does this regulator come with the DS4 or DST? Also, is it a DIN or Yoke?

The DS4 comes with the DIN version, same performance for either 1st stage.
Is the performance difference noticeable between the xtx50 and the xtx40? What is the difference? What are these 2 second stages suitable for or how do they differ?

Both are designed for recreational diving and will work for any range of typical recreational diving. The main difference as stated in the product description is the xtx40 is not an adjustable 2nd stage where the xtx50 is a balanced adjustable 2nd stage. Equally tuned, it would take a machine to actually tell the difference in breathing performance.
