Unboxing APEKS MTX-R

APEKS MTX-R Unboxing

I have finally received my new regulator for scuba diving: The APEKS MTX-R. This is the latest (and greatest?) regulator from APEKS and it is specifically positioned as very rugged and cold water resistant.

Cold Water Configuration

I decided to go for the MTX-R as I started to do drysuit diving this year and plan to do regular diving in local lakes. As the water temperatures here can be clearly below 10 degrees celsius a dual first stage configuration is required for safety reasons.

First Test

The first test of the MTX-R will be next weekend during my Rescue Diver training. As we just got snow again in Munich I am sure the dive is going to qualify as a cold water dive! 🙂
