Hello , Ran across this forum while researching a couple double hose regs I was going to sell for a friend . Might just keep them for myself now , LOL . Made my first dive walking off the boat ramp in Lake Texoma (Okla.) in 68' using a hoge podge of gear we found in pawn shops . It was great , had at least 1 foot viz ! The vintage gear I was using then wasn't vintage yet !! Moved to Fla. in 83 for the ocean . I am 65 now and still go when I can , got out a week ago and shot a few fish out of Ponce Inlet. Interesting site .
