I only have Thermo valve but I have heard that OMS builds a more solid setup. I have both a 200 bar DIN with yoke inserts and a set with 300 bar DIN. I really don't care for the inserts on the 200. I changed all my regs over to DIN aand I can't think of any reason why it would be relevant to change over to yoke other than travel in which I would just use a yoke to din converter. Sorry I'm not of more help but if your looking for a company with a more solid valve, then I would personally have to suggest using a 300 bar din as that is where you get a more solid connection. My thermo valves work fine though as I'm sure OMS does as well. I think that Genisis valve's also have a yoke DIN fitting but I'm not sure.
Forgot to ask. Does your reg have a 200 or 300 bar DIN connection? If it has a 200 bar DIN connection then you won't be able to use a 300 DIN valve. If it is 300 though, you can use either a 200 or a 300 DIN valve.
