    I didn't consider it "showing off" more a plea for help !

    i was under the impression you were, as my wife and i as well many of of our California friends, over burdened with old obsolete dive equipment that needed a new home

    I attempted to provide a small amount of advise for disposal; based on many years of combined experience
    as well as the professional advise of my wife Dr. Betty Miller

    If you have any double hoses that are just beyond hope, I'd like to buy for display purposes at my future dive shop.

    I have a Nemrod Snark III, which I bought used back in 1977. I used it for about 12 years, both recreational and "professional" diving. The pro diving was mostly working on racing sailboats to prep for races, or to change props or zincs. Having the exhaust behind my head was great, a single hose regulator just pushed bubbles in front of my face when I was upside down.

    I used the regulator down to about 90 feet, no issues with air flow at any time.
    The last time I used the regulator was around 1987, I had replaced the flap valve once during those years, which made the regulator breathe a little easier.

    All of my diving with this reg was in Puget Sound, it works great in cold water.

    Looking at the hoses, I'm not sure that they're up for current use. In fact, if anyone wants this regulator, it's "As-Is" with no assurance as to viability.

    That said, it's free to anyone who wants it, I'll even pay for shipping to a US address. I only ask that you make a donation to something that you love in exchange. You can reach me here (I'm not a frequent visitor), or just call me at 202.999.2465.

    My wife and I have tried to enforce a 10 Year rule. Anything that falls into certain categories that is not used in ten years gets given away or dumped. I had to Veto the rule to save some of my RC planes and move them to a storage room that her company rents. If we did not have this rule we would be walking over piles of stuff in the house. We both accumulate a lot of items from our separate hobbies.
