Well I took the advice that was given and changed out the reg. It will be off to the field for some air and pb's tomorrow and see how this thing does. Added a CCM feedneck also it holds the B-2 like a vise. http://img522.imageshack.us/img522/3011/timmywe8.jpg

What kind of reg is that? From the looks of it, I actually prefer the Torpedo you had before.

I thought you were going with a CP reg, but the bottom doesn't look right, and the hose attaches at the top? Is that an Evil Detonator? I can't see it very well.

I know its not an evil dotantor..but it kind of looks like a newer style torpedo..but I'm not sure.

I was wondering the same thing. What reg is that?

Oh, ok. I see it now. Whew - I was hoping you didn't get a detonator!

Is it redesigned inside and out, or just out? Seems like it'd be hard to improve on the old style - just a piston, basically. Also, HDH, on that link you gave, it looks like the bottom is a different texture - is it just the lighting or does it have a more "gripy" texture to it? I noticed it said grip regulator on the description...

I used to hang around Atomix when they were developing the A-bomb. I'm friends with JT the owner.......well he was the owner until they went out of business a couple years ago. Bob Long didn't like the eye covers and they almost went with conventional covers. JTs son Mouse came up with the atom bomb sketch for the body and teh bomb eye covers -

Only thing I don't like about this one is the gigantic gauge. Otherwise nice A-bomb Gramps! -

Looks good just stick an o-ring on the top of the reg, below the threads so that the macro fitting is in a different position. You should be able to get it so the macro faces back towards you and make it more comfortable to hold.

The reg is a new design thats on the Marq/Gen5 Timmys. Its WAY more consistent and looks WAY better than the Torpedos. There's no difference in the texture, its just your old eyes playing tricks on you Vike. :)

Hahaha, now THAT doesn't surprse me a bit!

What did they do to make it more consistant? I mean, it just seesm pretty basic inside, so I don't see how they did it...

You won't need to do that, it says in the info on the link that it sivels so you can set it up where ever you want.

Wow didn't get back in time to answer any questions :o. Been remodeling the house for the past 3 weeks and just finished up yesterday(I think). I really like the looks of the new reg, it's about 1/2" longer than the old BL torp. The adj screws make it easy to put your macro fitting where you want it. Just hope it breaks in quick.
CHAOSFTW..I think there will be a problem with the having babies thing, since there's another woman involved..see pic lolhttp://img205.imageshack.us/img205/1485/2timmyscr4.jpg

IIRC its not the same design as a Torp. I can't remember. If you look at the Marq manual it'll show you the internals.

a bomb looks good but imo could use a smaller gague and silver fittings

Vike, to go back to the regulator. It uses springs and a piston setup. However it works, it works VERY well.

I might have to check this out, if for nothing else but to see how they changed it! I thought the original one was so basic it couldn't be improved, but apparently I was wrong.

I'm gonna do some investigating on this - either way, way to go, Bob!

I think what they ended up doing is they lightened the piston, and changed the pin valve design a little bit.

But I am really liking your A-Bomb.
