The next model in the RDS range really starts to get more serious for scuba. It is usable up to Advanced Open Water depths and can really keep you going at a decent speed for a significantly longer time.

Longer dives are possible with all that extra air in your tank saved because you’re not finning, something we can all get used to.

The RDS250 is ideal for large, shallow wrecks or for circumnavigating a coral island and admiring the fish along the wall. Yet it’s still very portable and lightweight for the traveling diver and older kids.
