View Full Version : Mares Proton Metal Reg V16. with Octo and gauges

11-27-2007, 19:37
The reg, octo and gauges are less than 1year old. The octo and gauges were bought from scubatoys. All are still under warranty. I bought this setup for my wife, however it's never being used as she doesn't like diving in cold water so I am selling it. It was used less than a dozen time. This is a terrific reg. and because the first stage is metal, you will never have dry mouth, as metal promote natural condensation. I tested it to up to 110 ft, and the reg. breath perfectly. I would like to sell the reg. as a set. I will include the brand new Akona bag and Akona console sleeve. The gauge is an Oceanic Max Depth which include a compass underneath. I will put a brand new mouth piece on the reg. first stage

I am selling the set for $375 + shipping.


PM me with your email address should you want me to send you hi-res pict of the item.

Thanks, and I agree it really is a great reg. I went back and forth wondering If I should sell it or not... It is truly the most comfortable second stage I have ever used.

I may have to look into the Mares set up. Thanks.

I am looking for an extra reg, but not sure about buying used. do you still have this for sale? sounds like it needs to be serviced, will you take care of shipping to FL?

thank you

No it doesn't have to be serviced, it's not even a year old and has less than a dozen dive on it. Also the whole pkg. is still under warranty. Like anything used, it is however a good idea to have it checked. Any good/responsible LDS will do it for free. It take about 5 mn for a trained technician. Actually even new regs. bought online should be checked by a trained technician before diving, I know that's what I did with this particular reg. It was checked by Sea and Sea in Redondo Beach, CA right after I bought it. It passed, no problem, and Barry the owner didn't charge me. I am also a Master diver with a lot of diving experience, and I wouldn't sell anything unless I knew for a fact that it was in perfect working condition.

SHOULD you decide to part it out, I'd be interested in the second stage only.

01-15-2008, 22:15
I might sell the octo or gauge seperatly, but not the first/second stage. Sorry.

Is this still for sale?

01-16-2008, 14:23
Unless I misunderstood your post, you'd sell the first and second stage without the octo and gauges?

01-31-2008, 01:55
still for sale, lot's of inquires but no commitment yet.

PM sent!

will you sell the first/second stage without the rest?

02-11-2008, 08:52
I would be willing to take the gauges off, but not the octo.

I am looking for a first and second stage reg. More specifically I am looking for this reg. This post seems pretty old so I do not know if it is still for sale, but if it is can you quote me a price on just the first and second stage shipped. I live in Greenville SC, 29650.
