    No, although you could argue that they don't get manhandled as much

    Because I made the fatal error of ordering from divelife because they were £5/hose cheaper. Lesson learnt I guess

    Tell me about it. Service improved once I raised a query with Brett but in the first instance it took me to contact them after 7 days to discover that they were out of stock.

    True but at £6/hose + postage more expensive, they got sidelined as DiveLife didn't say they were out of stock. I'm still waiting for narked to come back to me on an order I'm waiting to place for a couple of their manifolds so I'm not overly enamoured with them at the moment, I seem to attract apathetic service at best and shit service at worst. Perhaps my money is no good to these people.

    I'll happily take your money and keep you fully informed what I'm doing with it whilst simultaneously failing to deliver your parts, that's got to be an improvement. :D

    every time i see someone ask how to get into a rebreather their told buy an old APD and go diving. I wonder what the cost per hour has been, may have been better to save some more and get a newer one. but you can have a lot of fun fettling.
