    Got bitten by the vintage bug about 5 years ago, and now all my single-tank diving will be done with double-hose regs. I've accepted that I'll probably never really go down the tech route, so I've decided to let go of my twin tank sets - but until they're gone, there still kicking around here. Never know when the mood might strike again.

    Sometimes I wonder if I'm addicted to diving or just addicted to gear.



    The beauty is in the details... :coffee:
