    Been looking to pull the trigger on a Kraken, but alas no DIN in this run....

    I can put a shiny chrome DIN on it but it won't match the satin chrome finish of the regulator above. I will have the standard Argonaut Kraken available again in the spring in yoke, DIN or get both and swap out as need dictates.

    They must be very proud of this special edition regulator if the price on their website link is correct. That is one hell of a lot of zeros for a piece of dive gear. $1,000.000.00 seems a tad bit absurd. I am guessing it is a typo, but if not, I wish them well.

    See the statement below the item?
    I'm so on the edge about getting one of these...

    Ah, I did not read down that far into the web page because the quoted price made my eyes pop out of my head. Thinking it was likely a typo, my second thought was "pretty sloppy proofreading." Since I was not really interested in a Kraken, I guessed I missed the humor or reverse psychology of their advertising technique. But, if I wanted one, I would buy one, as long as it had a nice SB discount (like -$999,000). Go for it. You deserve it--you know you do!

    That is VDH humor, those of us who know Bryan know that means - price to be announced later.

    Years ago when I put in the first automated shopping cart on VDH I mistakenly used $1.00 as a place holder number for items that would be coming up for a Christmas sale. Needless to say I sold A LOT of merchandise in the first few minutes at $1.00.....I learned the hard way.

    If anyone is interested in getting one of the special edition Argonaut Kraken before the sale please just send me an E-mail

    I want the red hoses back. My GF saw a pic of one with red hoses and has been bugging me for one ever since. Make one with red hoses and I will buy two. We both get one and I get her to shut up......momentarily anyways.
