    Or you could skip the flowers and buy their swedish meatballs. You could hae a giant aluminum container of swedish meatballs....

    But really, I don't blame any LDS for not wanting to deal with 30 year old+ equipment. Gotta love how thrifty people will be when it comes to products. It's no different than people using computers 10 years old and then complaining it can't run any new programs, buying shoes every 3 years and complaining they're not built to last, etc.

    At the end of the day Government regulations most often come about because self-regulation by industries RARELY is as effective.

    Yep, one of my beloved Super 80's is on the edge. On the good list, passed hydro and viz this year, but because of its 08/88 manufacture date, some places, like CSSP, will not fill them. I cannot blame them - I would take the same stance myself. It is a bit of a personal injury - caring for this great gear that has been with me in the alpine lakes of Southern Germany and Austria to the near-zero vis of Lake Whitney, TX and the weekends in Clear Springs in Terrel, TX.

    My favorite reg (Dacor, pre-Mares, also late 1980's) blew the seal a few months ago - of course, no more parts - so I had to upgrade .I have one more Super 80 (1990 manufacture) and love the shorter size for my shorter torso, when compared to normal 80's. This might be the time I look at switching to an LP Steel tank. Looks like the XS SCUBA LP 95 is about the same physical size!

    Anyone know if they fill those at CSSP?
