Hi Guys

Looking for a little help/advice I'm setting up a twin set using apeks fsr first stages. I have only used dst/ds4 before and was wondering how anyone with fsr first stages routes there hoses?

Any pics, advice much appreciated

I have an FSR on my right post and DS4 on my left post.

My FSR is routed exactly as Woz's picture, I'm assuming there is no issue with mixing and matching?

This is how I used to set up my FSRs

I now use two DSTs with the 5th port conversion.

Thanks for the offer, but I've got a DS4 coming this week hopefully, not sure if I'll use it on the twins or keep it for a second singles setup.

One of the most important things is that you can reach your knob.
Never obstruct your knob.
Never block your knob.
Some of you will be reliant on your buddy reaching your knob, this is to be avoided.
If your knob is too small it will be hard.
To much in front of your knob makes life difficult when you need to get to it in a hurry.
Spend some time looking at your knob and ask yourself, is it ok .
:D

My set is on the other side of the bench, but you should get the idea. Personally, I prefer the 1st stages a bit more horizontal, it seems to stress the left post hoses less.

Right Post :

Long Hose (Back)
Wing Inflate (Front)

Left Post :

SPG (HP back)
Backup Reg (Middle) - Note the route under the corrugated hose to ease the routing and keep it out of the way
Suit inflate (Front) - Removed when diving argon.
