DUDE! Why on earth would you want to lug around a HUGE low pressure 95 when for LESS WEIGHT you could have a genuine high pressure steel 120?
All you have to do is get your first stage converted over to a D.I.N. mount, and then you can graduate to high pressure steel. The conversion only costs about $50 or $75 at the most, and then you will be a safer diver with your superior D.I.N. mount. And there are available converters for yoke mount tanks, so you can use your D.I.N. reg with any old yoke mount tank that you still have.
Dont buy the 95s, man, cause they are pretty worthless. And they are a huge red flag that the diver wearing them either couldnt find anything better at the dive store to rent, or else he/she has never heard of high pressure steel.
