    yes, all Jetstreams. I have one Cyklon, but because of the annoying hose, I don't use it. Was originally going to be my deco reg, but will be switching to Scubapro 156's for that here shortly.

    I would like to dive Xstreams, but they are very expensive in comparison and I have something like a dozen sets of Jetstreams so I don't really have a justification to switch just to have a slightly smaller second stage

    When I was in the UK I was able to get my hands on a Myflex hose adapter that allows me to use regular hoses on my Cyclons. Unfortunately I haven't seen any in Canada. Maybe you can source them in the US

    DGX sells one of those - the brand should be Omniswivel

    the Xstream and Jetstreams share adapters and I use the cheap ones from DGX if not using swivels, or the Omni branded ones with the swivel integrated. The Cyklons use a different adapter unfortunately and Omni's have been the only ones available in the US. they're $32 for just the simple hose adapter, $52 with a 90* elbow, or $82 if you want the ball swivel. Just haven't had the justification to invest in them yet...

    It is called a Myflex adapter in the UK where I bought it. The Omniswivel adapter on DGX looks the same but is "speced" as a 1/4"NPT to scuba adapter, not a Poseidon hose adapter.

    The Xstream ones are different / not the same...don't fit Cyclons.

    look alike, but very very different purposes. those are sometimes used for surface supplied and other weird applications where you aren't coming out of an industrial type regulator instead of a scuba first stage. not something you see very often

    I was puzzled when I saw the one that I found as the only hose I have that it would fit to runs off my air tool compressor! Glad you've found one that will work. Mine were 25 pounds each when I got them on my visit to the UK so the price is about the same at DGX.
