Main reg Apeks ATX200 with egress octi, and a cobra 2, backup is an Aqualung Legend LX ACD with Titan octi and a cobra 1.
My wife is using a Mares V16 with proton second stage/octi and Apollo gauges/Nano computer. Her backup is a set of Aqualung Titans.
No complaints with any of the regs.The protons are great for reducing jaw fatgiue - light and small. Used to be my main set before I upgraded.
Only regs I've actually hated using are the cheap Atlantis regs that get sold with budget dive gear packages. Ended up sucking in more water than air once I got past 10m.

Using an Aqualung Supreme LX ACD with a 300 bar DIN. I am very happy with it, although I had to get the octopus calibrated after a while when it developed a tendency to start to free flow on its own.

I'm shocked to find out I'm the only diver who has responded that uses Atomic regs, have I bought an orphan.

Main - Atomic B2
Octi - Sherwood
Instruments - Cobra 1 with SK7 compass.

I've just got an Atomics SS1 integrated octi/inflator which I intend to replace my Sherwood Octi with.

I cant think of anything more relaxing, than being in the downunder, breathing some nice clean fresh filtered 21% nitrox.

I have Tusa in Oz, Scubapro in the UK, and Apeks here.

Stupid really, having so many different makes. But now I've had the Apeks for several years I'll probably remain brand loyal for a good time to come. Should probably offload the others before they depreciate further.

I've owned Mares Abyss (excellent), Poseidon Cyklons (terrible) and have been using Apeks ATX40s since 2008. The ATX40s are pretty much bottom of the range, but they have been good to me.

Incidentally, I've just had a couple of ATX40s serviced at Global Dive. They did a really good job.

I have always liked and used the older chrome 109's and 156's.
While they are now vintage regs they still out perform most other new regs.

For stage bottles I like the G250's ( not G250hp). At 30 + years old you you call these vintage too I guess. But the new G250V and G260's are nothing more than G250's with cosmetic changes. Why spend $500 on a new 2nd stage when you can get pretty much the same thing for $50 second hand?

1st stage I use MK20's and MK25 scubapros on my stages and Apeks DS4's on my rEvo.
