Love this Reg!
Have used this Reg on 6 dives now.. Love it! Adjustment knob is great, and is very responsive. Regulator is compact and have had zero problems with it in cold and warm water. Ease of breathing stays the same no matter upside down, right-side up, and under 100 feet. Has a very comfortable mouthpiece, and for the price you can't go wrong with this regulator.
I do not belive there is a better regulator set under $500.00 anywhere. I have had (3) of these setups in the past 4 years(I sell and replace to avoid annual service cost). The 2nd stage adjustment is nice and very noticible(turn away for more air), I dont know what the other complaint was about with adjustment. My daughter uses this set up now and I replaced mine with a MK25/A700 set at almost 3 x the cost with equal performance.

I live in N.J and it is great to have this regulator, i never really cared about the ease of breathing, but when i took a breath from this, it felt like no force being added on and it just came in so easily, the adjustment knob is a real help, even the small size is good to bring over seas. This was in the standard package that i bought, and people reading this, get that package, saves lots of money.
Compact, Lightweight, good performer
First stage on this reg is compact.
Second stage is fairly compact and offers a diver-adjustable knob, however I can tell very little difference on the settings. Despite that the reg performs very nicely.
One thing to note: If you're the type that likes user manuals (and I am), you'll find very little documentation about this regulator in the generic Oceanic regulator user manual. Their website is no more help. Specifically I was looking for information on which knob direction increased/decreased airflow as it's not marked on the 2nd stage... I have yet to find clear information on this.

The GT3 is hands-down the best performing regulator for the money in its class. The balanced CDX-5 first stage performs well at all depths and pressure levels, and the adjustable second stage is lightweight, comfortable, and easy to use. It is truly hard to find a better reg without spending a lot more!
