    My incredible KRAKEN SPECIAL EDITION must sadly go up for sale, as I have to raise money for some upcoming expenses and all of my extra dive gear must go. This reg has been dived twice and is working faultlessly. It has all the goodies that came in the package and some extras as well:


    Kraken SE Regulator hoses, DSV
    The reg is DIN and also includes a Yoke if you want to convert it.

    Argonaut “armor” on the regulator can
    Kraken secondary
    Kraken SPG
    Kraken knife (serial 012)
    Kraken hose covers
    Kraken hose weights
    Original hoses for secondary and SPG
    Swivel fitting for attaching computer transmitter hose

    Extras:

    Moldable Mouthpieces (one installed and one spare)
    Kraken logo SS waist strap buckle
    Extra ties for mouthpiece
    Dive Rite Octo holder (the best one out there)
    48” yellow hose for secondary
    24” hose with bolt snap for SPG
    Argonaut neoprene shoulder strap covers

    Plus, the reg is fully rigged in a semi-“DIR” configuration. The secondary is on a 48” yellow hose on the right side, so that it can loop under the knife sheath on the waist strap and attach to the shoulder D-ring with the octo holder. This gives you a nice length of hose for air sharing. The SPG is on a short 24” hose with an included SS bolt snap for attaching to the left waist D-ring.

    The photos show an LP hose and computer transmitter hose to illustrate the hose routing, but these of course are not included.

    Price for Reg and all of the extras: $850

    I also have the VDH backplate and harness (no wing) with extras:

    Extras:

    Fully rigged with XS tech harness (no wing). It is rigged as shown in Luis’ thread with the shoulder straps crossing.
    2 shoulder SS D rings
    EPDM rubber bands on shoulder straps for securing lights, etc
    Left waist strap D ring.
    SS waist buckle.
    Crotch strap already installed.
    Dive Rite waist strap quick-release weight pockets, each holds 5 lbs
    Highland Tank straps with buckles that separate for easy transfer between tanks.

    Price for Plate/harness/extras: $150

    Guy,
    I was searching my files and came upon a 20 plus year old letter from you about an article I wrote for my dedicated column in the now defunct Discover Diving Magazine.

    Now I am sad that you are exiting diving - hope all is well and can be repaired or replaced and you are back with us soon
    SAM
