So much on this sale!

Tue Oct 25, 2016 6:23 pm

So let me understand this sale coming up on the 26th.. In the store it says 780 dollars for all those goodies you have listed? Does the sale start at midnight as it has in the past? I want one of those packages. Very nice indeed!!!!
First dives? 1967 and I never lost the fever.

I moved it to Saturday to be part of the small business Saturday trend these days but we can stick to tradition and start the sale at 12:01.

I've had tons of inquires on the SE regulators....I actually ordered the bodies and yokes in January and they were delivered in April with the standard Kraken parts. I have been working since then to put it all together. I had to convince one of the vendors to do a short run of small parts without plating, Herman to make the spring pads and for the ceramics guys to experiment with me on a few parts. And there were failures that had to be scrapped and started again. I wasted a whole month experimenting with titanium springs (not cost effective for 12 regulators) But decided finally to move on and finish it. Dave did another amazing can label that really stands out and is just one of the unique features of the regulator.
I'm not calling it a non magnetic, but I'm willing to bet it is Less Magnetic than any other double hose ever was.

Edit. Originally I was going to ship them in a pelican case with an Argonaut Kraken logo but the new safe second stages were such a big hit that I ordered 12 more in all black and asked the engraver to make black and brass purge buttons and medallions for them and skip the cases.

Are service parts going to be hard to get for the safe second?

Absolutely not. When the time comes I'll have service kits for them. They will always be serviced free of charge when sent in with your Kraken. It is a simple and reliable design that uses standard parts which is one of the reasons I chose it. The main diaphragm and exhaust valve are silicone and will outlast all of us if properly cared for.

Can I get the plate package with the Hog 32 lb wing? I am sometimes over-weighted intentionally and would like the extra lift. What would the cost be?

Thanks

The website store does a great job of displaying what's available along with options, prices etc. The store also calculates shipping cost and options when you check out just like most other on line retailers do.

With that said.....There was a big run on VDH plates while I was a away in Cozumel. There is only ONE plate combo that will be available during the sale. I have ordered more plates and expect them sometime in December.

If multiple opinions are needed or you would like a group answer then the forum is the best place to post questions. If you need something specific and in a timely manner my E-mail works much better.

Or you could just set your alarm a little early as the sale starts at 6am est Saturday..........I will shut down the store tonight around 6pm so I can add the inventory count and do some checks and then I'll hit the GO button at 6am.
