Very Nice Collection! If you had ( God Forbid) to get rid of all but one, which one would you keep? Just curious.
REALLY???? Vintage or modern....lol! I would keep the Kraken.
Really!!!! Vintage so the Kraken does not count as your answer. I am finding each one has it's own feel to them. Just curious ???

FINALLY! Finished up my 1963 C-2 Dacor "Clipper" with all orignal nice shape hoses, tinnermans and new hp diaphragm from Rob at the Scuba Museum. Definitely a little more involved rebuilding than either US Divers or Voit. Works and breaths great, especially with the patent "Dial A Breath" feature available ONLY from DACOR! :D :D :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :mrgreen:
Nice! I like these a lot, and have had 3 recently. I have one left that I'm currently posting on eBay. They are said to be rare, but I'm not sure how rare.

Diaphragms and other parts are not plentiful for these. Hoses and mouthpieces (esp non-return valves) are becoming really difficult to find. FYI: I discovered that the neoprene hoses Dan sells are a good fit for the Dacor 1 1/4" mouthpieces, since they are so tight on 1 1/2" mps. I have used them a couple of times with very good results.
