Should I own 2 Kraken Double Hose?

Mon Jul 16, 2018 12:53 pm

I just purchased my first Kraken this year. I'm wondering if I should buy another as a backup? My thinking is if 1 needs to be serviced and I can have the other to use. Wondering if anyone has more than one?

I know Bryan wishes we all did. :D

I've gone the opposite route of many here, and the Kraken was my first DH experience. I'm a little "overprotective" with it, only using it in fresh water (it is a "series 1", so I want it staying as nice as possible, but still seeing use). I had considered another as a daily diver, but opted to start tinkering with old ones, upgrading them to "near-Kraken" performance.

I'm torn as to another Kraken...

Doing it right should include some common sense, not just blindly following specs and instructions. .Gary D, AWAP on SB

The Answer is YES!
You should buy another Kraken. Now put your mind at ease and get that thing ordered! :)

Justification: Since when does NEED have anything to do with it. Wanting it is a good enough reason to buy it.
