I typically take the entire regulator back to my room when traveling. Sorry for the tangent.

No worries, have dove with the same family for over a decade. They take good care of us and it is nice not lugging it around twice a day.

From DGX website, "...this style of air spool is not compatible with plastic body gauges manufactured by Pelagic Pressure Systems (PPS)"

I don't understand this either, but doubt it is an issue. 'Diving older grey and yellow transmitters, on six inch hoses, with DGX air spools, for two years without problem.

Call DGX for explanation (they are experts), and share with us please.

Hi , thank you. I spoke with DGX they believe it will work as they haven’t changed the spool and used it prior to the swift being released.

I would just unscrew my transmitter from the first stage. You do not install them with a wrench. You can simply unscrew it and take it with you.

I would not do that without putting a port plug in to seal it back up.

The italic paragraph

The statement reads...
"Although our flange air spool is compatible with modern metal body submersible pressure gauges as well as the Shearwater Swift wireless transmitter, this style of air spool is not compatible with plastic body gauges manufactured by Pelagic Pressure Systems (PPS) for their parent company American Underwater Products (AUP, now defunct.) Sold by sport diving brands such as Oceanic and Aeris, the plastic body gauge was also supplied to some third party brands such as Sherwood and Genesis. The flange spool also is NOT compatible with the Garmin T1 wireless transmitter, which requires a special spool that is included with the T1."


The PPS plastic gauges and the PPS transmitter are different designs. The PPS transmitter (what Shearwater calls their "legacy" transmitter) and the DGX flanged spool ARE compatible. The paragraph in the product description has been edited to make this more clear.

Revised statement now reads..
Our flange air spool is compatible with modern metal body submersible pressure gauges as well as the Shearwater Swift and Pelagic Pressure Systems (PPS) wireless transmitters (branded Aqualung, Aeris, Hollis, Oceanic, Shearwater "legacy", Sherwood, and Tusa.) However, this style of air spool is not compatible with plastic body gauges manufactured by Pelagic Pressure Systems (PPS) for their parent company American Underwater Products (AUP, now defunct.) Sold by sport diving brands such as Oceanic and Aeris, the plastic body gauge was also supplied to some third party brands such as Sherwood and Genesis. The flange spool also is NOT compatible with the Garmin T1 wireless transmitter, which requires a special spool that is included with the T1.
