"I think that the DIN connector is a better fitting then the Yoke . The DIN captures the tank valve O-ring better then the yoke and is more streamline."
True, but let us not forget that there are TWO different size O rings on the DIN gizmo that can cause a leak if faulty instead of just one on the standard yoke, and also you need to have a 6 mm Allen wrench in your kit to keep the internal unit tight. So with a DIN fitting you have 3 possible failure points instead of just one with a standard yoke. How is a DIN fitting more streamlined than a standard yoke, and so what?
BTW, Jim, do you remember O2 scubbing those ancient steel 72's of mine some years ago?
