    Some micro mesh and some patience can yield good results on old scuffed up face plates. Over here they all look they've been dragged behind a truck for 40kms, have no idea how they get so damaged.

    I've been in situations where I was so absolutely in love with my regulators during the dive, that I would breath out of one regulator in the first 1/2 of the dive and switch in the second half. Now that's DIR (doing it relaxed).

    Confession: I do love my regulators but above is when above is even more intense feeling of love.

    I only use Apeks FSRs nowadays. Easier for parts stocking and I like them. I unsealed one to use with my Con14s.

    Just put mine on a mag gauge and it's cracking out of the box at 1.1" ip 145. I'll leave alone and dive as is. One more sleep.

    Just checked tank pressure it's at 24 bar, so I'd imagine it's closer to 1.3" with full tank.
