    Those that know me will recognise this as a rare statement from me !!

    Go with what is recommended by others and has a good reputation.. It may be a few bob more but even I, the meanest bloke on the block, will not scrimp on things gas.

    Not bought one so no personal experience, but looking at the Cavagna site they are a Global company with a UK branch and supply regulators to a wide variety of industries .... leisure, industrial, medical and scuba diving .. I wouldn't hesitate in buying one.. they are made in the UK and it will have a warranty

    Ahh.. now you see there are two things in that sentence to worry about

    1) Made in the UK ( sorry.. as much as I promote the UK as much as pos I no longer have much faith in what is made here :Sad: )

    2) Warranty... Warranty is not a whole lot of good if, like us, you are out of the UK more than in !
    If it lets go whilst abroad will you go without until your return or just bite the bullet and buy a replacement, getting the duff one replaced under warranty upon your return ? ( and then, if you are like most folk, forgetting to return it and finding it in a locker 10 years later !! LOL !! )

    What I am saying is that a warranty is a fine and good thing but in many cases not a whole lot of good 'in the moment' ( if you see what I mean ), so what warranty is on such a product should not nec. be taken in to account ( god I am twisting myself in knots here.. I know what I mean but for some reason am finding it hard to express )

    if it was me i would change to an old fashioned bottle top reg . thery just go on for years .can cost as little as 3 quid . and you can always change where ever you are.
    hear nothing that wants to change my mind . i still use old uk butane reg or a uk propane reg. seems far better to me .

    just get a clesse one and have done with it.

    as i understand the truma ones have a warranty its just not worth the paper its printed on.
