Tor erling.norway(comercial diver)
This i the best regulator i have ever used , it is perfect for the one who is clumsy whit there gear you can drag it in the sand drop it on the ground and not worry it will still work. throw it away after use don t rinse just let it lay ther and it will still work when you pick it up again(none of this behavior is recommended take care of you gare) it can take abuse like no one else
Cyklon vs. jetstream
I have both the Cyklon and Jetstream. I bought the Jetsteam first and was very happy with it. But I got the Cyklon so cheap that I had to get it. Bottom line is that the Jetstream is a better regulator. I muck around on the bottom of lakes and the Cyklon would always get clogged with sand and debris-but not the Jetstream. And the Jetstream has a positive pressure beathe-it almost breathes for you!!!!-some don t like this but I love it. The high I.S. pressure of the Cyklon necessitates the use of another Cyklon as the safe second. Jetstream is my favorite regulator-even more than my Apeks TX50....yeah, I have one of those too. -M
I ve been diving since 1977. I m a PADI Master Trainer. For years I dove with a Cyklon 300. I ve tried Scubapro pilots w/mk 25, Dacor Pacers, US Divers JM C s Pro Line, and Oceanic DX5/Zeta I know some are old school but now it s time to return to the best (since I don t work for a shop anymore and can dive with any reg I like) I see there isn t a new 300 so the metal 5000 is in the picture. Long live the pilot value Poseidon.
Been diving since 1985 and did my military service as a marine diver. Have used the Cyclone in both worlds simply because its souch a work horse and so comfortable. My old one from 1986 has been so abused in mud, silt, sand and corals and just refuses to fail. Have used it tropical waters aswell as arctic enviroments (-1 C) without a glitch. Did my first (real) service two years ago and all the parts thats has to be changed were still in full working condition. No wonder that most of the worlds military divers use it. My only problem is to keep it away from my girlfriend who also preferes it to her Apeks TX50. Go Gothenburg!
No doubt: best regulator ever!
I started diving in -86. Bought my Cyclone 5000 Metal then. More than 500 dives with the Cyclone over the years with no problems. It can take all the abuse you can imagine. Bought one Jetstream(Maximum) some yars later and switches between them. The Jetstream is a little bit more comfortable with the almost zero breathing resistance, but I prefer the Cyclon nevertheless. My Poseidon regulators has never failed or malfunctioned, thats the bottom line. Poseidon: the best regulators, period!
Is the above suitable for heliox saturation diving?
