    It was used for my pony bottle, so it hasn't seen many dives. Last serviced September 2017. Works great. Asking $400. IMG-8491.JPG IMG-8492.JPG

    Does this generation Mikron have one or two HP ports?

    Hi Fibonacci, picked up another Command Air recently. Prosub brand, that makes four of them for me now.

    @Kupu oops didn't see the date :D

    Good to see another Command Air fan!
    Let me know if you need new Sea Hornet first stage HP seats or Command Air second stage mainsprings... previously unobtainium even in AU, so I have remanufactured both types 24mm and 27mm in 316 stainless.
    Having the right spring is important in getting cracking pressure to the correct 0.5" manufacturer's specification.

    Indeed!
    Been interesting chatting with the designer Peter Katz, the Command Air was designed from the outset to crack reliably at 0.5" which took a lot of tuning spring rates, lever geometry, case geometry, diaphragm size and shape, silicone rubber Shore A hardness etc.
    Also the exhaust valves were deliberately not made from silicone rubber, as natural gum latex rubber had much faster recovery in breathing cycles. Think snappy latex speargun rubbers...

    Unfortunately that performance boost came at a cost, as latex rubber deteriorates pretty quickly in service.
    So THAT is why the Command Air had a unique clear window to easily view the condition of the exhaust valve!
