Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Atomic Aquatics Z2x Scuba Regulator Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Atomic Aquatics Z2x Scuba Regulator Review Posted in: Between $251-$500, Scuba Regulators

This regulator shares many of the same parts as Atomic Aquatic’s T2x, but at 1/3 the price tag. That fact makes it a great bargain, and even though is not a truly inexpensive regulator, and Scuba Diving made it a Best Buy in 2009. The regulator is somewhat innovative in that it comes in two different models. One has a swivel built into the first stage with five LP ports, while the more normal regulator is conventional in design and has seven LP ports. Dive magazine gave it an overall rating of 87%. The “Z” in the name stands for the zirconium used to plate the valve assembly, which offers superior corrosion resistance to the more common chrome. The Atomic Aquatics Z2x is compatible with Nitrox mixtures of up to 40%.
