    Actually I said "heat" but damn straight I eat some nachos and pet my dog and share nachos with him, mostly while drunk on a Friday in the middle of swapping a DIN post on a regulator. Then my dog tests the reg for me in the pool, he is a Frenchie and being so has direct lineage to the famous Jack Crouton, scuba pioneer.

    @cerich i did say "sold as an upgrade " not sent for free to everyone who ever bought one as well as instructions instead of requiring them to go to a service centre and pay a phe-"nominal" labour fee.

    If you know the D6 team, then you know testicular fortitude isn't something we're lacking. More importantly, we have nothing to hide. Those who know us know that we'll do the right thing and those that don't will hopefully get to know and trust us by our actions. Whether it's a big win or an embarrassing f***-up, we own it.

    The Deep Six brand is built on community and that's what we're counting on for our continued growth. The best thing we could ask for is to have someone recommend our gear because of its quality and performance, and recommend the company because of how we operate. We see ourselves as the most pro-diver company in the industry and we will not lose focus on that.

    I'm new to diving, but as a repair tech in another industry which commonly uses size 004-020 o-rings (and the occasional 112), please really consider -- and test -- if you do want colored o-rings. In our industry, one of the first things I do when repairing something from a make that uses the colors, is to replace the colored ones with regular uncolored ones of the same material and hardness. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome to be able to say to someone "replace the green o-ring that lies between the two red ones in the middle of the bolt assembly" instead of "replace the bolt sail o-ring that lies in the center, between the bumpers in the middle of the bolt assembly (see diagram)".

    Over time, we've found the colors to wear down prematurely, hide nicks that would otherwise have been found and overall be worse for the customer, even amongst the DIYers it's supposed to help.

    I'm not sure if it's something funny with the way OEMs dye the multi-colored ones as opposed to the "regular" ones, or something else we haven't thought to account for, but we can't seem to figure out why it keeps happening.

    In any case, thanks for the awesome products!

    brown black and white orings currently seem to work fine as well as did the old scubapro stuff.

    The black is standard color for buna-n orings, and white for teflon I believe. Funny you mention brown, as one of the companies that used to have red orings that were notorious for shredding has now made that size brown, and it's supposed to help.

    No experience with the old ScubaPro stuff.

    Makes sense. If you're able to source some quality o-rings with good QC, that may go a long way as well.

    When I think color, white is poly, brown is viton and black is buna...... but we all know any compound can be any color.
