I was looking forward to finding out the cause.

Yeah I think we were all quite interested to see what the story was... :roll:

But yeah if they turn up on Trade me or similar they will stick out as they are the only set in the whole of NZ!!
And yes if they try to service there is only one man in NZ that sells the service kits that I know of and thats the guy who sells the regs.
And for sure they will be in for a huge surprises if they take them for a splash to any reasonable depth... :shock:

I don't think it's been mentioned what flavour of reg they were and in the interests of helping folk avoid purchasing stolen gear that will give them a nasty surpise here's what they were:

Zeagle flathead 7.

Fair call, Rob. I think it's the only Flathead 7 in the country as well - so would be fairly easy to spot.

Although in light of the performance of this particular reg I think I will in future refer to them as the "Flatline 7".. :P Or the "Flatdead 7" :lol:

It could be a genuine mistake, package opened by the couriers to inspect the contents - nearly every time I travel with regs on a plane, the customs guys always think it's a bomb or some other suspect item. So worth just checking with the courier company.

Trademe is probably the most likely place it will get sold, I guess?

Unless it was exported via ebay or sold directly to poachers via an organised crime network.

Hmmmm, I'd neglected to think of the cross border traffic in illegal aliens. Maybe we should check the green cards of all employees at McDonalds in New York and see if one of them is actually a Zeagle regulator in disguise!? :lol:

I've been watching old episodes of Spooks. :D

Although there was a trade in stolen Hiace vans being sold to the Middle East reported lately.
