I recently purchased what was advertised as a new standard screamer. When it arrived it was black in color. I haven't seen pictures of a black screamer anywhere. Can anyone tell me how old it might be? Dave R.

My only guess is it may be a Yates Aid Scream, they were black once upon a time.

Thats just a regular Yates screamer without the shrink wrap on it. My old screamers from 10 years ago are green, the new ones are shown as red, but if memory serves, Yates isnt exactly a stickler for using the same color no matter what for product.

You could call Yates and ask when they last used black for screamer runs- they're small enough that the guy who answers the phone may be the guy on the production line.
