Very nice Mark!
I'm jealous of the conditions there. BTW I'm planning on coming down there next month or early April. Maybe we could hook up for some nice diving then.

Always up for a dive. These days family and work obligations keep me busy but let me know your schedule and we will see what we can do.

The 2018 model arrived today. The first surprise was how light it is, compared to my Phoenix models. Not brass and chrome, but sexy in a very futuristic sort of way. Perfect for travel. I'll never part with my '59, but I think this one has me wondering why I need to hang onto my '60 Phoenix.

Congrats on your new acquisition. I have a '73 round label Phoenix AM and a '64ish Voit Navy Phoenix in addition to my Kraken. I still enjoy diving them all. :D

Having 2 DAAM Phoenix HPR's with dates within months of each other is no longer necessary, thanks to the Kraken. I'm much more of a user than a collector.

I introduced my son to the old TV series Six Million Dollar Man the other day. He penned the following advertising jingle for the Kraken:

Double Hose Regulators, a concept once barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's best double hose regulator for the 21st Century. The Argonaut Kraken is that regulator. Better than double hose regulators were before. Better, stronger, faster. :D

A few pics of my latest "Kraken" taken last weekend. I am using a Zeagle double strapper that works just great with my "up-armored" Kraken. I was also highly impressed with the Force Fin split fins which gave me as good if not better propulsion/air-time than my Apollos (which I love). The only thing that wasn't modern was the mask. I also tested out the DSV and used my freshly refurbished Scubapro D 350, which breathed great. The Kraken armor looks cool.

That looks awesome man. A Kraken is definitely on my list after I get my Phoenix built. Sad it took me over 5yrs to complete that project though.
