    Diaphragm for sure.
    I've been using Apeks FST's on OC Doubles for way to many years never had an issue.
    On my RB I use SP Mk17's... same as above.
    Bailout deco bottles have Halcyon pistons which are made by SP and a clone of the Mk25, never had issues with those and if you r in Can they are a very cost effective alternative

    Hello cleung,

    Poseidon, Jetstreams, northern Pacific, no issues, ever!

    I own two sets for doubles, two sets for sling bottles, and one backup set, fantastic cold water performance!

    Rose.

    I would be willing to pay a bit more for the higher level Apeks, the one on my list just to feel a bit more secure

    I don't know about these other factors but I don't recall breathing that hard since it was only at Humber Bay in Toronto with about 30 feet depth. I knew it wouldn't be too hard to get up top and to shore either. It was just a major inconvenience since I had to abort the dive and this was the first time I experienced a freeze

    I have used DS4's with TX and ATX second stages for many years in The Great Lakes and Newfoundland with temperatures down to 0c in Newfoundland late Spring. I have also used them on a trip to Greenland and Northern Labrador. Zero issues.

    Does anyone know if Poseidons would be difficult to service in the GTA Toronto-Mississauga area?

    So far my XTX200 has been great in cold waters. Might be worth a look at.
