    It appears as if another high pressure hose is being recalled, this time it is Phantom.

    Just got an email from Dive Gear Express pointing me to this

    http://www.divegearexpress.com/other/phantomhoserecall.shtml

    It appears as if the recall has not been formally announced yet.

    I received this from LeisurePro:

    Dear Customer;
    We have been notified by Innovative Scuba Concepts that they have
    initiated a Consumer Products Safety Commission Recall for certain
    "Phantom" high pressure braided hoses that was manufactured. The
    failure mode is that the hose can burst at the crimp fitting that
    attaches to the first stage. When this occurs breathing gas is let out
    of the tank at an uncontrolled rate and may result in severe injury or
    death due to drowning.
    The following manufacturing date codes are subject to recall: 11Q3,
    11Q4 and 12Q1. Please click on the link below for complete
    instructions.
    Innovative Scuba Phantom High Pressure Hose Recall
    Customers should immediately stop using these Hoses, and contact
    Innovative Scuba Concepts to receive instructions for obtaining a free
    replacement hose. Phone: 719-597-2885, 800-472-2740 or via email
    warranty@innovativescuba.com
    Please Note: This recall applies only to the specific 11Q3, 11Q4, and
    12Q1 lots of double braided flexible high-pressure SCUBA hoses that
    are intended for use with submersible pressure gauges (SPG). This
    recall does NOT affect other double braided low pressure regulator
    hoses, BCD inflator hoses, and does NOT apply to any rubber hose nor
    to any Miflex brand hoses.

    My 11Q4 failed last week, rather violently.

    I happily dove my Phantom HP hose marked 11Q2--which is not part of the recall--until last week when I noticed it was leaking loudly where the hose enters the barrel at the gauge end.

    Yikes, I just purchased a 12Q2 Phantom last week (happenstance found me here) ..... did they come out later with any additional recalls or warnings for other Phantom products?

    Did I just tie the most obscenely perfectly formed and tight knot for the bolt snap on my HP hose?
    -Yes
    Was this hose recalled probably about the time that I tied it?
    -Yes
    Did a little piece of my soul just die?
    -Yes, dang it, yes...
