HOG Switchback Second Stage ReversibleWe only have a limited number of these "5 Regulators at this time!" and once they are gone we will no longer be able to get them! We will be able to get the service kits since they use the same 2nd stage rebuild kits and Hog will carry replacement parts if needed
The Switchback Second Stage features an internal barrel that is able to be flipped back and forth between left hand or right hand use. This makes it the premier choice for Sidemount divers or those doing U/W Camera work to put the house routing either from Left or Right. All the same great features of the original D1 with this reversible solution for different types of diving.
The HOG Second stage gives you ergonomic one-handed access to both the inhalation effort knob and the dive/predive venturi adjustment lever, making perfect regulator tuning easy. The rigid second stage face cover and the positive-action purge button with diaphragm protection reduces the possibility for current-induced free flows and completely eliminates the possibility of diaphragm pinching seen with many flimsy rubber purge covers. The most important feature of the HOG technical second stage is the amazing breathing performance! The metal gas tube and precision components of this second stage allow for precision tuning for extremely easy breathing while also retaining heat and moisture from exhaled breath. This provides increased resistance to freezing in cold water and less "dry mouth". The dual diver-adjustable features allow for condition-specific tuning during each stage of the dive.
HOG Second stages have been produced using a DIVE INDUSTRY first and MUCH more environmentally friendly Trivalent Chroming process. Trivalent Chrome is exceptionally friendly to the environment compared to standard Chrome; it is also much more expensive. Even using more expensive choices in production the HOG regulators remain the best value in the dive industry for divers needing durability, performance and reliability for demanding technical dives
