There is a recall on the new inflator hose from Whites. I am going to try to attach the document here but if it does not work you can go to their website (http://www.whitesdiving.com/index.php?id=186&cid=512&site=4).

I am glad that they were so forth comming with the info on this. This could be real bad at 100'.

Thanks for posting that. How the QD can shear off is beyond me. They must have had a terrible alloy that they used...

Must be. I messed with mine a little last night and if sure feels solid, BUT I am not taking the chance... I would have never thought that it would shear off...

That's enough to scare the barnacles off me. Good thing I have the old style hose...thanks for posting Phil.

Another good reason to dive doubles.

Seriously, this is scary for people who don't dive much, how would they know something is wrong if they aren't cruising the internet?

Maybe it's just me, but I fail to see how diving doubles would help if your DS inflator hose fitting sheared off

You can turn off the regulator with the leaking hose and still have another reg to breathe from. You won't loose all your gas via the leaking hose because there is an isolator between the 2 tanks (which you would close).

A good buddy will also provide a working reg to breathe off of and have adequate gas to make it back to the surface.

I didn't think about the fact that the hose would be leaking. You're right about the doubles then.
