Sure you don't mean C3N? That was the one before the R4. I own a C3 clipper and it's my favorite Dacor double hose. It performs better then my R4.

Eric,

As you asked, this is the C3N. Pardon my typo...actually it wasn't a typo with my computer, it was a typo in my aging brain. The regulator is new...

This regulator was on eBay from Hawaii. No one bid on it and I offered $250 after it went off. The seller re-listed it for me and I got it for only $165. It was hard to breathe, so I pulled the cans off and squeezed the legs on the mechanism, and lubricated the contact points. Now it breathes very well indeed. Steve

I got these from Franz in Germany. They dive great, so comfortable and the buckle is solid and easy to manipulate.

Rob,
I believe it was around 245.00 toata1 with shipping. The weights were way more then the shipping however. They are a rare find i am told and very hard to come by.

:D I have, somewhere in my mess, the mold for those weights and all the parts of the system for about 12 to 15 weights if I remember.
If I can find it, maybe VDH would be interested to make a new mold and have some parts to make some more... :?:

Hello,
for those interested in weight belt, here is another cool one :
The Barakuda patronius, appears in the 1962 catalog of Barakuda.
Each small weight is about 250/260 grs, as you can see you can adjust exactly the lenghth of your belt by adding part of belt.
