Agreed 100%! you already wasted money going cheap with the ASA. Don't go and waste even more money on yet another cheap reg set up. Take a few weeks to read everything you can and ask questions. Then just start looking through evilbay for a good dual stage reg. I was ableto get a like new matheson dual stage for $40 shipped and I was just able to pick up a clipperd mouse nv55 combo off of someone on barrreport. So I have gotten a $200 setup for $80! Even if youcan find the reg cheap on the auction site and buy a post body off of some like bettatail you will be miles ahead!
This has been my personal experience and I feel many others would agree. I understand you may not think you have the funds for a nice dual stage setup. But save your money and be patient, there are deals out there!
