    I was searching for a band clamp for my new-to-me DAAM and found one at this emarplusk site for about $14. That sounded good. Then I found a J-valve rod for about $9. That sounded good too. Then I found a dive computer at a price that is too good to be true. I was just trying to qualify for "free shipping" so I was looking around. To me it seems odd that a scam web site would be selling such things as parts for vintage scuba gear, but I guess you never know. All I could find out was they are based in Texas and the web site domain name is 16 days old.

    Needless to say I won't be ordering from them unless someone has actually bought something from them and received it.

    Thanks.

    I bought a Ultima Dry glove set a while back from a website just like that....it was too good to be true and I knew it, but I tried it anyway. Thankfully I paid through PayPal and 3 weeks later they refunded me no issues.

    Even if I find it cheaper, I try to throw the business towards VDH or the scuba museum.... I figure a lot of these parts wouldn't be available if they hadn't put in the work and capital.

    Absolutely, but the main difference is that I would pay $9 for a j-valve rod but would continue do without if it costs too much :wink:

    I'm still waiting for the web site to be shut down. Meanwhile, if anyone wants to buy a brand new Shearwater Perdix for $99 or the Brooklyn Bridge.... :wink:

    I'll take the Brooklyn Bridge!
    Always thought that if I charged toll in both directions I'd have a lot more money for diving.
    No need for a Perdix that can't tell you what your actual PO2 on all 3 sensors is, no matter how cheap.
    Of course If they offered analog Petrel II EXTs for USD150:clapping:
