    Did I get the right regulator? D420 vs g260

    Initially went to the store just to get the Aeris reg serviced, was not expecting to get a new regulator that day. I hadn't really done any research on regulators at that point. Shop owner said Aeris service parts wouldn't be available and offered me a $50 credit to trade it in. I looked at...

    Did I get the right regulator? D420 vs g260

    Actually there was nothing wrong with the aeris kit, it was from 2014, well maintained, everything worked great, kinda wish I didn't trade it in now to the shop, but was told it was a safety issue since the service kits aren't available. I'm a cyclist and the gear discussion is really similar...

    The 620ti and mk25 evo also interested me. It's about a $215 price increase over the mk17 evo/g260 but not sure if it's justified. Is breathing on a piston that much better and is it that much cheaper to service?

    I got the SP r195 octo. Reading the boards here, didn't see a lot favoring the 620ti over the g260, but would love to hear from 620ti owners if there's an advantage. My top priority is really "bombproof" status. I'm not planning on tech diving and want something that doesn't require tweaking...

    I traded it in really as a safety precaution if service kits aren't available, I'd hate for it to fail while I'm on a liveaboard.

    Aeris did get sold to oceanic several years ago, and oceanic cut Aeris as a brand. Reg and octo worked fine, but don't mind an upgrade, it was a very basic set. I traded in the aeris reg and octo and got $50 credit at the dive shop.

    Thanks for the responses everyone. I'm not planning on modding the d420 due to a lack of experience. Is it going to be a noticable improvement with the d420 over the g260 in quality of breathing? Does the mk19 evo offer any performance benefit over the mk 17 evo, other than swivel turrent? Thanks!

    What mods have you made to the D420?

    Thanks for your post! So your recommendation would be to go back to the MK 17 Evo / g260?

    A little about me, PADI advanced open water, typically do 2-4 total dives a year nowadays, warm water, typically 60-100 foot max depth, ocean. I've been using the same aeris a1 reg and octo since my initial open water certification in 2012. Took good care of it, rinsed well between dives,and...
