PHOENIX REGULATOR NO LONGER FOR SALE.

Thu Oct 28, 2021 7:39 am

DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST, I HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE THIS PHOENIX OFF THE MARKET. IT IS NICE, BUT APPARENTLY NOT OF INTEREST. THANKS TO THE OVER 800 LOOKS AND THE 14 WHO DID COMMENT.


A while ago I was asked by a forum member if I had a Phoenix Regulator that I would be willing to sell. Apparently an "interested" person used his and was thinking of getting one. Well as everybody knows, the Phoenix is currently not available from the VDH store and seeing as how I had two, I did offer this one to the "interested" person. After negotiating on price, I compromised toward his offer, the "interested" person backed off. Ok, no big deal, as a person who sells various items of vintage style via vintagescubastuff.com you get lots of "tire kickers". Anyway, now that I had decided to let this one go, I will now offer it to those who visit this forum.

This Phoenix is the second model produced. It has a shorter body than the original Phoenix model. It is housed in an early 1960s Aqua -Master can with satin chrome. It has all the possible updated parts, i.e., HPR second stage, Duckbill eliminator, Hookah port adapter for LP hose options, All silicone where possible, hoses, mouthpiece, low pressure diaphragm, mouthpiece mushroom valves. The Phoenix body was installed by Bryan here at VDH. The Label is a reproduction by A & D Adventures, LLC. It even has a "Beauty" ring on the exterior of the first stage, a PVC ring that covers part of the body for appearance only.

Now, for the price. I WILL NOT give it away. I don't need to sell it, and as such, seeing as how they are as scarce as Hen's Teeth, I only want to get what I have invested in it. Go to the VDH store and add up the prices of the pieces to convert this nice satin chrome DAAM to a Phoenix. Might consider installation price also. I will not advertise the price here, I know I am a PIA, I would rather discuss the reg with potential purchaser directly. Use the PM or email me at my business, [email protected]

Wow, 185 Looks and not one reply. Hmmm, no-one wants a Phoenix. Maybe double hose diving is dead or everybody (our tiny group) has what they need or want.

Ya, people pay 500 to look just like every other diver and every advertisement, but you can't talk them into a double hose for $500 even after they get done talking about how cool you looked diving it on the same dive they just did.

I think you might have better luck if you post a price and go from there. I built a Phoenix DH from scratch so I know pretty much what you have invested in yours.The currently unavailable Phoenix based DAAM is a great substitute for the currently unavailable Kraken. The cans on your offering look especially nice. At one time I had both the Kraken and the Phoenix and decided to sell the Kraken and keep the Phoenix. Good luck with your sale.

Re: PHOENIX REGULATOR. Withdrawn for sale.

Thanks for the reply. It seems selling here Is a bit problematic unless your price is very low. My price is fair based on availability and initial cost of parts etc when it was assembled. All I asked was to converse with a potential buyer and I am sure a deal could be struck. But that was not to be. Therefore,
This Phoenix is NO LONGER for sale here at VD H.

It's amazing how the demand for these DH regs has fallen off. It's hard to sell a rebuilt regulator for cost. I guess the market is saturated. I have crates full of them that I guess my kids are going to inherit!
