I forgot about the knife with matching serial number and Argonaut Kraken logo that comes with each regulator!

Just wondering if the Argonaut Kraken SPG (with logo) is also available in BAR or just PSI?
If not what is the minimum number for a special run in BAR... you can put me down for two to get the ball rolling

Get with Steve Taylor (HDS in your area) He is the virtual Ambassador for the Argonaut Kraken in Australia and if you guys can put together an order for 12 of more I'll get the white face gauges made in BAR for you after the holidays. It would be much more economical to ship them all the Melbourne at once.

Thanks Bryan, will do.
In the meantime is there a similar Ambassador in the U.K. or Europe?
Maybe a single larger BAR order could then be more cost effective and shipped to two sites?
I'm thinking 0-300 BAR SPG plus boot but no hose... to save shipping and allow customisation in any hose length or type.
One advantage of being in the Southern Hemisphere is that it's hot at Christmas time... so i will be diving with my new Kraken in the next few days
Hope you and family have a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I don't order large volume so I don't have the luxury of dictating terms to the manufacturer. Gauges will come in bar, white dial with boot. Let me know by email when you have the order ready.

Last week I shipped my personal Krakens to the largest film studio in Hollywood who will be using them for test shots in July in anticipation of outfitting a cast of divers for a multi gozillion dollar movie project. I had to sign a nondisclosure agreement so I can't share much more.....Actually they would not tell me much more.....The idea as of now is that the Krakens will be integrated into some type of housing and used by perhaps a dozen divers during the film. 8) 8)

Bryan, your future is so bright you gotta wear shades! Parties every weekend at Bryan's new So Cal beach pad. Scantilly-clad starlets lounging by one of the three pools, A-listers hanging on your every word. Producers vying for your attention. Big Bang Theory cast members just wanting to be near you. I'm envious. 8)

I hope he won't forget his old friends, and will have time to take us over to Catalina on his Yacht! Woohoo!

You guys are under the impression that the gozillion dollars is actually shared in by everyone involved....I'll be luck if I clear enough coin from this venture to afford to go see it on the big screen....IMAX if I really negotiate hard..... I can tell you that me asking about merchandising, being in the credits or royalties was all laughed at and not even in a nice way really :lol: :lol: .....But lets not get too far ahead yet as it's not in the film for sure.

You know, when I saw Hail Caesar in the theatre, there was a scene where George Clooney was imprisoned in a little room with old spear guns, fishnets and a couple sets of tanks with double hose regs attached but when I rented it on Netflix, that scene was cut!

August 7th 2017

As you may have read on the forum and Facebook a major motion picture company has been test shooting with the Argonaut Kraken for a movie.
They anticipate using multiple units but are unsure of the exact number at this time. Therefore they have retained the rest of my 2017 inventory for the next few months.
As soon as I know an exact number and if there are remaining units I will put them back in the website store.
If you are interested in being notified by E-mail of any remaining units when they become available please do the following.

Send me an E-mail…..B[email protected]

Please make the title of the E-mail. Argonaut Kraken Wanted


That way I can quickly sort and respond letting you know they are in the website store for sale again.

First look at the DSV for the Special Edition Argonaut Kraken for this year.....It will have a "vintage" vibe with modern performance...... Stay tuned for more details....
