    Can’t recall if I’ve ever seen the wrap around nitrox stickers on deco bottles, even in a photo.

    Marking bottles with tape is the norm. 4 Divers, 4 Colors.

    FWIW, I also mark tanks with pink duck tape, just to stand out.

    :rofl3:

    How appropriate. Duck tape - would go quite nicely with my regs that honk when breathed on the surface. :D

    Duct tape is for analysis marks by the neck. Nothing but MOD decals anywhere else. Use standard deco gases. There's literally no reason not to except to be obstinate.

    Chicken scratch on a piece of tape is not easily visible and just complicates a gas switch. Just use a normal, appropriate mod sticker that is large enough to see easily without having to get on too of the person doing a gas switch.

    No, that's not what I meant. I'm talking about the very small nitrox tags that almost every shop has. The one you write your mod, ppo2, %, etc on that gets stuck to the neck of the tank.

    While some shop has these, I’d say the vast majority don’t. Duct tape or painters tape works fine and is much cheaper for the shop.

    What shops are you using? I've been up and down the eastern seaboard and tons few different countries and there has pretty much always been nitrox tags. Either way, it's a moot point.
