Only saw them in passing, didn't really look closely - but when I'm next there I'll have a proper look.

i've used the bungee right now too but i am picking up some old car inner tube today which i think will work better for the hoses.
the bungee tends to roll and sllde up too much for my liking.

The tubing, which I also got from Global, is super strong and tight! Brilliant stuff!

DIN adaptor for my Legend Reg arrived and lawrence from SPLASH again sorted it out for me,many thanks.
That coupled up with my lovely shiny new THERMO valve on the tank its looking mean.. :lol:

Heres the final edition that I am 98% happy with,the last two are:

a) As Tara rightly said the round type of bungee's roll and move so something flat and rubber like inner tube would be a go.

b) The second stage doesnt hug the bottle at the top as well as it did with the yoke so the second stages flops around a bit,which I really dont like.

i'm definitely going with inner tube - even starting out down low, it rolls up way too far for me
