With inhalation there seemed to be a brief stop in
Is this reg new by any chance??
Or perchance it's due a good service?? Sounds like something is sticking inside..
Alternately, I had a similar problem with my mk25 just after I bought it. The dive center I was in were able to fix it overnight for me so I the weekend wouldn't be a washout and the said afterwards that the problem was one of the seals/valves inside that was a bit of a design flaw. They knew about it and had replacements on hand so it could be worth letting your local service center look at it and see what they think..
It's possible this is it too..

Possibly high intermediate pressure. slight second stage free flo
It is a HORRIBLE idea for you to dismantle your first stage. It should only be done by a trained technician because of how many small parts there are... now depending on your regulator you might have the ability to turn down the pressure... read the manual to find out if your reg has this adjustment capability.

Schematics for a scubapro mk17 regulator
these are controlled by scubapro due to they need specail testing equipment to repair regulators E..G now IP pressure is 135 psi and there is no adjusting screw shims and springs then the cracking effort test to see if you have pressure flutter or creep. these can not be seen with out testing equipment.

What does the law of buoyancy mean
the law of buoyancy is the principle that describes why some objects float over water and some others sink: when you put something in water, it receives an upword force equal to the weight of the water it displaces.
this is important in diving in many ways.. and in particular, in diving, you always want to have a neutral buoyancy: this means that if you are standing still in water and you have a neutral buyoancy, you don't sink nor come back to surface
you have a neutral buoyancy if you "displace" always the correct volume of water.. in other words, you always need to occupy about the same volume: if you go in deep water, the water pressure will "reduce" your volume, so to mantain a neutral buoyancy you have to inflate air in your buoyancy compensator jacket to expand its volume.
otherway, if you're coming back to surface, pressure reduces and your body occupies more volume, so you have to deflate your jacket.

How many time is normal mask life ?
it depends on the quality of the mask and it depends on how you stored it (if you leaved it at sunlight, if you washed it thoroughly after using it in the sea...)
i have a mid quality mask Mares mask, i have been using about 20 times for snorkeling, then i used it to take diving certifications in pool, then i used it for about other 20 dives in the sea... i always stored it in a dark bag (the mask is now about 8 years old)
you can check if you mask is still in good shape, and the silicone has not worn out, in this simple way: just put the mask on your face without straps.. remove all the air inside the mask by inhaling with your nose.. then look at your feet (keep inhaling): if the mask remains on your face you can keep using it

What are the different types of dive computers?
The two main
types of dive computers are wrist dive computers and console dive computers.
Wrist dive computers are actually just like wrist-watches (a little bigger) and
are worn on the diver's wrist. Right now, they are smallest dive computers
computers are attached to the diver's equipment by a hose. Main difference
between console dive and wrist dive computers is that console dive computers
include pressure devices in them.
