Mares Ultra 72X and Dragon Package Product Description

 

The Mares Ultra 72X and Dragon Package contains the Mares Ultra 72X Regulator, Dual Octopus, Mission Puck 2 computer and either the Dragon or Kaila SLS BCD. Its is a fantastic well priced set that will do everything that you need when diving recreationally. Suitable for both the new open water diver up to a dive instructor.

 

The Mares Mares Ultra 72X Regulator is brand new on the market and is at a great price. Whether you are just starting out with only a few dives under your belt or you have been diving for year, this regulator will be a great choice. The 1st stage is the 72X with 2 x HP ports and 4 x LP Vertical and 4 x Radial LP ports that are all DFC ports. The (DFC) Dynamic flow control is designed to minimise any pressure that drops when diving during inhalation which maximises air delivery. The 2 x HP ports are also known as OPD (Optomized port design) which is a Mares unique feature that are angled opposite each other that allows the turret to be rotated without the HP and LP hoses interfering.  The 72x has the Auto sealing system (AST) which is designed to keep the 1st stage dry without affecting the performance of the regulator whilst in use. It is an internal component that is activated by air pressure. Next is the Natural Convection Channel (NCC) which increases the regs performance when in cold water by creating a flow of water across the regulator. The flow is driven by the change of water density with temperature. Its has a pearl chrome finish and connects the 2nd stage via a super flex hose which is a braided style hose that is extremely durable and lasts longer than the standard rubber hose.The 2nd stage is the Ultra and is made from an ultra light technopolymer that is abrasion resistant and ideal for diving in moderate and warm waters. It has the Pneumatically assisted design (PAD) which allows for an assisted supply which allows for a much softer spring and greater breathing comfort. The Mares Ultra has Mares new Twin Power that is a flow control that manages the delivery rate of the air from natural breathing to power breathing and it is situated between the hose and second stage that can be operated easily even when weraing thick neoprene gloves. This is generally used in strong currents, deep dives or extreme conditions. The VAD (Vortex assisted design) is a small bypass tube that delivers air to the mouthpiece creating a vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation for a sensitive breath every time. This light weight second stage comes with a comfortable silicone mouthpiece and a wide pivting purge button that is suitable for all divers.

 

The Mares Dual Octopus is brand new on the market and is already proving to be a top seller. It has hit the market running with some great features at an awesome price point. Whether you are just starting out with only a few dives under your belt or you have been diving for year, this regulator will be a great choice. This 2nd stage is an emergency regulator called an Octopus or Occy and is necessary to have whilst diving for any emergency situations when a second reg is needed. The Dual is made from an ultra light technopolymer that is abrasion resistant and ideal for diving in moderate and warm waters and is a bright yellow which is easy to spot when diving. The VAD (Vortex assisted design) is a small bypass tube that delivers air to the mouthpiece creating a vortex with a low pressure area in the center that keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation for a sensitive breath every time. This light weight second stage comes with a comfortable silicone mouthpiece and a large purge button that is suitable for all divers.

 

The Mares Mission Puck 2 computer is an extremely important part of your dive gear as this will inform you of information that is vital when diving. The Puck 2 is made up of 2 different modules including an air gauge and a computer. Both parts play an important role and having them all together makes life easier when looking at the console. It is a high pressure gauge that screws in to the HP port on the 1st stage of the regulator to read the contents of the tank. The hose is 33cm in length and made from a high grade rubber. The air gauge has a brass case that sits inside a protective rubber boot that is an anti shock elastomer to prevent any damage to the pressure gauge. The technopolymer window covers the glow in the dark face which is great for night diving or on dark cloudly days as you can always see your air consumption. The face is an easy to read display with color coded areas so you can always clearly see where you are with remaining air. Blue is safe, white is starting to think about finishing your dive and head back to the boat of shore, red is very low so and you should never be still diving when your air consumption when it is in the red and black is out of air. The gauge shows 0 bar to 360 bar. The computer is a fully function RGBM dive computer with oversized digits for easy reading. The single button operation allows divers to smoothly scroll though the menu options with out any confusion and is easy to use. This computer has gas switching capabilities so no matter if you are diving on air or nitrox EAN from 21% to 99%, it will be suitable. The user replaceable battery is a great feature as you are able to carry a spare battery with you and swap it out easily if needed in a moment. It is of course recommended that you have it done by a service centre where they will not only change the battery but will also change the o-ring and pressure test it at the same time. As a recreational diver this particular computer will do everything that you need as when you hit water, it will turn on and tell you all you need to know other than air of course. Temperatures, depths, safety stops, Nitrox mixes or even if you want to check your log book on the surface interval. The visual accent and decent rates are a popular request when looking for a wrist watch and the pre dive planning mode and decompression dive planner are great features also. It holds up to 35 hours of dives in the log book that you can go back and look through at any time and has the option to transfer your dives over to your computer if you decide to purchase the USB interface. 

 

Why not grab the Mares Drak USB cable to transfer your diving data from your computer to your PC, saves time and effort writing in down in a log book. If you choose to add the Drak you will need to download the appropiate software program to your chosen devise. If you are using a PC, you will need to get the Dive Organiser sorftware and if you have a Mac, you will need to get the Divers Diary software. These can both be downloaded below and once you have the downloads, you will be able to transfer your data over which will allow you log all of your diving without having to write them in a log book. 

 

The Mares Dragon SLS BCD  was conceived and designed for divers who want security, comfort, and style. This BCD is one of the most comfortable on the market today due to the large amounts of padding and shape. The internal plush lining combined with the oh so padded back support allows you to stay comfortable even after an hour of diving. Equipped with inter grated weight pockets and small non dump able pockets in the rear, these are positioned in the lower part for better upright body efficiency at the surface. The new weight integrated pockets now come with a slide and lock system which allows you to visually see when you weight pocket has been safely and securely locked in to place using a color tab that shows once they are locked in. A very cool design as there is nothing worse when divers think that their pockets are locked in and they jump in and one pocket plummets to the ocean floor. Getting rid of that horrible old webbing weight belt makes a huge difference with comfort. The bladder of the Mares Dragon SLS was designed to create less drag by placing majority of the air cell around the tank, creating wings. The side inflation air cells have been contoured to minimize the feeling of the bladder under your arms to give a more comfortable feel. The ergonomically shaped pockets have zippered openings to allow easy insertion of weights. The release system on the Mares Dragon is a first in the market, a one pull movement to release the weight pockets allows less effort yet still stays secure. The Dragon comes with 5 all metal D-rings to allow you piece of mind when hanging items off of them and large pockets for you torch, safety sausage and more. This BCD has so many amazing features that everyone, beginner or advanced will purchase and love.  Weight is 4.5kg.

 

Available also in the She Dives Kaila SLS BCD with is the exact same in features, however designed for a women's figure. 

 

Dont forget to get a Safety Sausage as this is a requirement for each individual diver to have when diving.
