    Don’t waste money, get XTX50 instead if you go Apeks.

    To me the Apeks DST first stage is the most versatile. With the fifth port it provides good hose routing for back-mount singles and doubles as well as side-mount.

    I'm partial to Apeks, but the MTX-R(C) would fit the bill very well. I use a DST first with MTX-R seconds and I love them. They're workhorses.
