I'll probably dive it this w/e at the Monterey Vintage Dive Event.

Well, that didn't happen due to several problems (not with the regulator), but I did pool test it last week, and it worked great!

Boring for you but exciting for me! Click on the pic for an exciting 6' dive to the unknown! Yes, the reg is too high, but I'm working on a Dacor plastic pac that will work well with DH. I needed a crotch strap to hold the tank down since it kept riding up.

Glad to hear it's working well after all your efforts :D

I'm excited that SwimJim is going to be testing out my Dacor DH conversion when he gets one of my first stages with custom second stage fitted into some DH cans. As an amateur modder/novice diver, I am really looking forward to having an expert diver like Jim diving one of my regs (relieved that he'll be carrying a backup reg and bottle of gas).

As you know, I bravely dived a prototype into the unknown, reaching depths up to and possibly beyond an exhilarating 6 fow (maybe all the way to 7' when lying on the bottom of the pool). It worked well. I have high hopes. Be gentle, Jim!
