@flowerfish

Wow! That's a huge difference in size.

@bettatail

Great looking unit! Are you using two solenoids? Also, what brand bubble counter are you using? What are your experiences with its built in check valve?

yes, two solenoids,
the bubble counter are the cheapo, the push through pressure is high, and not consistent, but work, because the co2 system, is a system, once whole system(from the regulator to the diffuser), reach the perfect balance, the the flow rate and pressure at any specific section, will hold steady.

Anyone else hate waiting for stuff to ship?

I've got everything but the stuff I could just run to the hardware store and get. Stupid parker distributor. I only rant because I've been wanting to do one of these 2 - tone regulators for forever and I finally have everything except the stupid run of the mill pipe fittings. I haven't been excited about seeing how one of these things comes out in while. All brass fittings all 2 - tone components. Should be a pretty compact design too.

Waiting... :/

atleast they aren't backordered haha. it's annoying i'm still working on a customer's manifold, i have chrome fittings on hand and they're actually cheaper than buying brass fittings from home depot but for the sake of color uniformity i really want to use brass fittings lol.

will replace the 2" nipple to the 1.5". Ordered on a local retail store.

Brand new mini dual stage. The hoke is a perfect match.
Actually I like the hoke better than my other valves except the h3A on my harris hp742.

I don't get it yet. I ordered this week and wait for them to call me for pick up. not special order. They told me they use to have the 1.5", but people complained that it's too short, so they just sell the 2". They said they can order it for me if I want the 1.5".
