Lets take a look at some of the Features of MK25 1st Stage

The MK25 is Scubapro's top performing piston-controlled fist Stage. This first Stage is known for its very consistent delivery of ambient pressure, durability, and dependability. This is a reg that can perform in any diving condition and temperature.

The first stage utilizes a balanced Flow-trough piston that delivers effortless breathing that is unaffected by depth and decreasing cylinder pressure. This means no more laboured breading at deeper depths or as your tank pressure becomes low.

Many diver may see this as an advance because it reduces fatigue, however some may prefer the the laboured breathing as a sing that it is time to ascend.

The MK25 is construction of bronze and covered with high polished marine grade chrome, and features 2 high pressure ports on both sides of the regulator and 5 low pressure ports on a swivelling torrent, so you can conveniently arrange and personalize your gear. The swivelling torrent also reduces some tension in the second stage hoses witch reduces Jaw fatigue.

It also has an Anti-freeze coating on internal parts that protects them from freezing in extreme cold water diving conditions, and has an externally adjustable intermediate pressure, so dive equipment technicians don't have to open the reg to adjust the intermediate pressure. This makes for easy maintenance.

It is also available in both A-Clamp (Yoke) and DIN configurations.

The A700 second stages is unique, in that they are not mass produced. They are meticulously assemble by hand, one at a time.

In MAX position it give powerful breathing support on every single Breath.
