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.

Edge Epic Scuba Regulator Review

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

Edge has tweaked the Epic regulator for 2012, and the result is a set-up that garnered a Scuba Diving magazine Best Buy award in 2013. Insofar as changes, Edge lightened the load by using a nylon braided hose, put a universal ball swivel mount for that hose in the second stage. The standard features of the Edge include balanced diaphragm first stage; balanced pneumatic second stage; a soft, easy-to-use purge button; and a big, chunky inhalation-control knob. The reg performed well on breathing machine tests, and consumers in the field give the 2012 edition of the Edge high marks.

Average Price: $315, listed at $370.
