Default DIN vs. yoke

well, i have queston and need your,divers,input. i have two tanks that are steel 100's and high pressure with a DIN valve. well i am about to get a new regulator in the coming weeks or month and i am thinking about getting a yoke valve on the regulator because my old regulator has give up and broke the past two years after having it servicedthe past two years. when it breaks it has ruined my dives that i was on cause no one else had DIN tanks. i have had two adapters for my regulatorbut both of them started leaking after a few uses. what would ya'll do,keep the DIN or change to yoke.

I'll be the dissenting vote here - I prefer Yoke.

If you've got HP tanks, you need to stick with DIN.

What kind of reg do you have now and how is it "breaking"?

You might just need to adjust the the sensitivity on the reg and get it back to specs.

Which model Oceanic is it? You say you've had it serviced twice in the last two years? Unless it's simply worn outit should not be free flowing if the service tech was able to get it into spec at servicing. Bring it by MBT and let us take a look at it. There's no charge for initial testing, and as Paul said, it could just needa simple adjustment.

If your gonna primarily use HP tanks stick with DIN, most O-rings are rated to 3000 PSI. HP tanks are usually 3442 PSI. Although I never heard of anyone having any problems... I prefer DIN... I guess it's more personal pref or a comfort thing...
