LONG TERM TEST
A range of gear is tested over a six-month period, including Scubapro’s Mantis M2 dive computer, the Aqualung Argonaut dive knife and Atomic Aquatics’ s X1 Bladefins.
The MTX-R is based on the MTX military regulator and is a super tough, rugged, high-performance, go-anywhere regulator. The MTX-R has excellent cold water performance and has a greatly reduced risk of free flow – Apeks have achieved this by improving several areas, including their innovative endcap solution that solves a long-challenged reality for cold-water divers of first stage freeze up. The MTX-R is highly reliable and also very easy to service out in the field. Read our exclusive first dives on page 86-87.
