The single, biggest complaint about the Poseidon side exhaust regulators in the US market is the custom hose with the built-in over pressure mechanism to handle the second stage servo valve. Technical divers like to experiment with hose lengths to find the perfect hose orientation and this can change depending on backmount, sidemount or stage bottles. The specialized Poseidon hose made it difficult for experimentation, not to mention spare parts when traveling. At Dive Rite, we now have a standard hose on our new Jetstream “DR” that just launched in July.
Prior to the release of the Jetstream DR, the original Jetstream got a good review in Scuba Diving magazine.
