what do you all think of the reg pictured here http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/spo/412168707.html worth 150 bucks or not?

All I see is a second stage. Not enough info in this ad to inspire confidence in this seller. Why can't people take 5 minutes to describe items in more detail? I would want to know make, model, amount of usage, last service date, etc. Never assume anything.

Parse through the cryptic description and they do in fact refer to it as a second stage.

Somebody is selling a new R295/MK2 for that over on SB. http://www.scubaboard.com/showthread.php?t=198355&highlight=ScubaPro

Although I don't know if it's particularly good deal.
I don't buy ScubaPro so I don't know what list is on it.

Might be useful to have the 1st stage also...

you have to be real careful, agree to meet if it is close by and see the regulator upclose and i agree, get the last service date, usage ( could be a DM with 300 dives in ice or something), and most importantly why are they selling it??? plus haggle them down never pay full price on craigs list, most people increase their prices because of this.

That is for a 2nd stage only. You would need to buy a 1st stage also to make it work.

Also if I recall correctly, you're not even certified yet? As much as I am a fan of buying online, cobbling together a kit on the cheap might not be the best approach for someone completely new. There will be plenty of opportunities for that later as you gain experience and knowledge.

dont buy it. i work at a dive shop in CA, and i get people coming in to get their stuff that they buy off craigslist or ebay serviced. it ends up being another 100 and for that price, they could of gotten a decent reg with warranty.

Since you are not certified yet, ok maybe certifiable, take your time before buying a lot of gear. Rent different makes and models to get an idea which is best for you. just MHO

You can get a decent brand new regulator set for what that guy is asking for half a used one. Scuba pro earned a great reputation when it was better than the rest. That was back in my boyhood. Now it is just another brand.
