    Red face miflex hoses-husband is going to kill me!

    decided that i hadn't met my monthly ST quota & was starting to pack for vacation & decided that reg/inflator/console hoses were a PITA to twist around to fit into reg bags-a quick call to ST and they are 2 day airing me 2 complete sets of hoses-i consider it an investment(probably won't show him the bill for a while)-did use my $50 ST gc & forum discount, so its almost like getting 2 for free!-oh yeah, i had them throw in a biofilter for me as i suffer from major cotton mouth when using nitrox, can't hurt-hope these hoses live up to their hype

    I've used Miflex on my primary and they are far better than the rubber hoses. The standard hose was always pulling; it felt like it was caught on something.

    Concerning spousal unit: just bat your baby blues (or browns or greens or whatever, at him and say: darling these are for my safety. You don't want me to DIE do you? The guilt works well with my wife...I think.)

    my knees hurt already(ha-ha) by the way THAT problem is solved with a foam garden kneeler, ladies you can thank me for the tip later-and he very rarely looks at my eyes, if you catch my drift......
    had same problem with primary hose pulling 2nd stage, made mouthpiece feel like it was constantly being twisted- not very comfortable

    this may qualify as extreme as he is not thrilled that I can always find something that "we really need" or "won't this make it easier" or "but it was on closeout"- we are starting to get into redundant equipment....dangerous territory!

    I did the same thing....switched out all the hoses on both regs to Miflex without telling my husband first, and it took about 2 seconds for him to say "cool"! Everytime we travel to dive, we always comment on how much easier the Miflex are to travel with than traditional hoses. Heck, I can now get BOTH sets of regs into ONE reg bag since they coil so tightly.

    Congrats, you won't regret it!
    ScubaToys and Zeagle....it just doesn't get better than that!
