You need to take the ")" off the end of you link for it to work.

I will have to give one of these a try as I have become a big fan of there LP hoses.

Looking forward to it... especially the 6" hoses for deco bottles.

ektess1, curious what you don't like about the miflex long hose?

I have seen someone with the 7ft hose and it doesnt route well at all.

I have a 7ft Miflex and love it... My regular 7ft has just been sitting with all my extra hoses since I got it...

I too will be very interested in the HP Miflex for the 6" hoses...

Cool! I plan on getting a couple of these when I visit ScubaToys (if they have them in stock). I know I at least want a couple 6" hoses.

PS, I like your avatar. I know where that was taken!

I wear a Miflex 7' hose.

How exactly does it not "route well"?

I don't think it's so much that they "don't route well" as it is that they're more slippery than the rubber hoses. They don't stay put quite as well. I like mine, though, especially on my single tank regulator for traveling. I'll be looking for the HP version to arrive.

maybe it was just the diver that I saw it on but never the less it wasnt routed well at all. It looked to me the reason was because of the miflex if this isnt true my appologies

No worries. :) Mine "routes" just fine, just like the rubber hoses do. It's true that they're a little more slippery, but this just means I need to wedge it a little more firmly under my light canister. Aside from needing to pay a smidge more attention to that, the only differences are positive ones. :smiley20:

I dive with a 5' long hose. Under the arm and round the neck. I usually don't wear much if any thermo protection. I don't even own a hood.
I find the the Miflex catches ir grabs the back of my neck. If I look right I have to pull the hose back around so that I can look left without it pulling.
I love it for my bungied backup.
I need a shorter HP hose so I will buy one of them as soon as I can.

Gotcha... makes sense.

People who dive without exposure protection definitely fall into another category for much if the dive gear on the market, I think. The vast majority assumes at least some level of protection, even a skin makes a difference.

I'm sure that they'll sell out in a hurry with initial orders.....

I know that Phil is taking "pre-orders" because of this.... so order now if you want them in the "first round".

That is what I was advised by my LDS. My bungied necklace and inflator hoses are miflex.

Mine just showed up. They're amazingly slender and flexible. I'll be diving with it tomorrow.
