Yes, I have thousands of flashes on my D1 strobes, one of my D@ flash tubes blew at about 1000 flashes.

I have 4 YS-D1 strobes and anInon z240 that have been flawless. I bought 2 YS-D2 strobes in September, The flash tube burned out on one if them on my last dive trip. I am waiting to hear back from sea & sea. I sent in for service last week

Not that it helps in ID for this part but as a tip, Anytime that I buy a gear of extension, I immediately label it with a sharpie for part # and size.

In Topic: Nauticam port with 60mm macro, focus gear?

When shooting with my105 lens doing super macro, I find the ability to focus manually is indispensable. When shooting the 60 My depth of field is much larger and fine manual focus adjustments are not routinely needed IMHO.

In Topic: YS-D1 vs the new YS-D2

I have 4 YS-D1  and 2 YS-D2, Only reliablility issue I have had with any of them is when I had some minor corrosion on a D! battery cap, it caused the strobe to misfire, resolved with a cleaning of the contacts.  Otherwise flawless through over 1000 dives.
