aqualung over Mares, but you are aware that there is a lot of other pieces involved to get a fully setup regulator yeah? What are your long term goals, and how did you come to choose those two regulators?

Thank you for the response. I have been talking to my local dive shop and i am well aware i will need more gear but for a starter i ended up picking up aqualung pro hd BCD. These 2 brand of regulators were suggested by a guy at the shop. I am located in California so i am hoping to local dives and do a little spear fishing

The link for AL regulator shows a "Titan" not a "Titan LX"

I am partial to the AL regulator product line over Mares regulators based on my many years of using and testing both lines in addition to servicing them. I have no actual experience with the Mares Rover 12 however.

Reading the specs for both, it would appear that the "Titan" is a higher class regulator than the mentioned Mares Rover 12 regulator and is reflected in the MSRP for both. I'd go with the AL regulator (disclaimer: no actual use experience with the the mentioned Mares Rover 12 regulator however).

Titan LX is likely all the regulator you will ever need, plus AL warranty free parts for life is best in the industry. I have more regs than anyone should have, and think the ALs are the best all around.

I have a Titan LX. Used it a few times, and now it's just a backup reg. Cannot reccommend it. Not sure what a better bet in your price range is, but I am now using a Scubapro MK25/S600. Far superior breathing at all depths and orientations. Highly reccomended.

My personal preference would be the Titan. It is a little more compact is very reliable and will have more dealers every where. If you get the Titan make sure that to get one that has the standard hose connector on the 2nd stage, some models came with a proprietary connector on the second stage that required Aqualung proprietary hoses or purchasing an Aqualung adapter to use a standard LP hose.

Between these two regs, hands down I'd go with the Titan. It is a bulletproof reg, but like Claymore said, get the version with the standard hose fitting, I believe it's called the Titan Classic.
