Hi Tim,

YOu have 2 black 2nd Stage plates on your regs?  With's prices,
I'd be happy just to get a new 1st and 2nd stage and worry about cosmetics
and hoses domestically [ they are based in Spain.]  FWIW the Apeks website
states they have many more colors other than yellow ... but the Hogarthian
way is to use yellow ... which is a defacto standard as backup reg or
octo.  The Tx50+40octo kit comes with a yellow octo hose.
