    Either divegearexpress or Piranhadive have the best quality, selection and prices

    +1 on DGX bolt snaps, DE's, plus pretty much most other things they sell!! Have also used Piranha with good experience.

    While saving and trying to decide on whether to bite the bullet on getting a Teric and transmitter I will continue to use my Cressi Leonardo. Good, cheap dive computer with easy to read and use interface. Probably not much more than a decent depth gauge? Whatever computer you buy, make sure you learn how to use it properly though! The included manual may not suffice, but there's usually an online, interactive tutorial available for just a few $'s.

    TH...

    Your lengths are all good with the exception of your secondary...I think you'll find 22'' too short...suggest a 28'' with a 90 degree swivel attached to the second stage...you want to be able to turn your head full range to the left...

    Suggest the 27 inch for your inflator hose...

    I swear by the Deep Six DGX version...

    Good luck with your new regs...

    Best...

    Thanks, I ended up going with a 22" for now. I can always get a longer hose if needed :)

    The Hydros Pro should already have had an inflator hose on it too, and I believe it was 26/27" long or so on my medium, so if the 22" is short you have the other option already covered. I put mine in the bag as a spare just in case..!

    Try the new xdeep bolt snaps. Much better design than the traditional dog leash models.

    I love these things. Much easier to manipulate. And very smooth.

    those two don't work together. For GUE in general, SPG HP hose is 24". LPI is 20-22". corrogate hose in most wings is 13" or only. Those are good to start. After you get the rig dial in, you may want to adjust the length a bit (by replacing the hoses)

    I'm aware they don't work together, already working on replacing it. Thanks for the lengths!
