I bought two of these in different lengths as replacements for my old standard rubber hoses. I really like the skinny less bulky hoses. I haven't had them long enough to attest to the durability but so far so good working perfect with no leaks running tank pressures in the range of 3200 to 3600 psi.

I have owned quite a few SPGs. I prefer the all metal with glass face as I have had a plastic gauge that imploded on a deep dive. I do wish it had a slim protective boot with a clip point but that is not a critical problems since I can tie a clip to the neck. The 2 inch diameter is a good size. I prefer a white face with simple numbers and this fits that preference. I have generally have very good experiences with dive rite products and the low price of this one prompted me to purchase.

I bought two of these DC3-212 at the excellent sale price you would expect to pay for an entry level regulator. I use the regulators for deep technical diving with tri-mix. So far I have made dives to ~225 feet with these regulators on a set of double tanks. I feel they breath as easy and any other regulator I have owned. The breathing adjustment is easy to turn even with 5mm neoprene gloves. No issues so far. At the price I would recommend this regulator as a very good buy.
