I'm currently diving an ATX200 w/7' primary, bungeed secondary, etc...
When doing the hose replacement I pretty much did like for like. This was a number of dives ago and I'm starting to wonder about cleaner hose configurations, than the current "X-wing" one. (diaphram up, which I'm not too crazy about)
I've got the same rig, with 7' hose. The diaphragm up is the best routing I've found. With the diaphragm down, your HP hose is going to be coming off the regulator pointing up, and you want it to route down over the front of the wing. If you get the Halcyon 7' hose, it is extremely supple, and there's no problem with it coming out of the reg horizontally before curving down to your canister light. If you try and point the diaphragm either left or right (reg horizontal), at least one hose is going to be sticking striaght up. On an angle, and you're going to have at least one hose pointing up before having to curve down again.
Is there a problem you've experienced with it configured like this?
sillygrendel once bubbled... I recently switched to the 7' hose from the 6' (I now have a HID ) I've just seen cleaner routings for other regs, and was thinking if there was something different I could do.
I went through the same thoughts you did for pointing the diaphram in different directions...
Just looking to see if someone out there thought of something I hadn't! (it happens)
Love the reg though.
Hahaha - that's exactly what I did - got a canister HID and dumped my 6' hose for the 7'.
