I dive the beaches of Southern California 2-4 times per week. I loved the compact design of this octo but after 20+ dives on it I've had a free flow problem that I can't correct and I'll have to have it serviced. I'd probably buy another model if I had to do it again.

Nice octo second stage. Hope to never need it but I definitely know it will work when I do. Mares makes very good quality equipment and this proton is definitely very well made. I highly recommend it.

Great octo small size second one I have purchased
from Los Angeles, CA
I'd gotten complaints about my original octo (the LPO), and so stepped up to this one based upon the recommendation of a friend who dives with the Proton as his primary. It's lightweight, easily visible, and breathes well. Unfortunately, it's been somewhat prone to free-flowing, so much so that I wound up using it as my primary on a recent dive trip. I wouldn't have expected, but it performed very well as a primary. Under rare demanding conditions, it could have breathed a little bit easier (I'm thinking of possibly panicked buddies here), but that would probably only exacerbate the free-flowing. Overall, though, this is an awesome octo (and a pretty good primary).

Nice compact reg that fits nicely out of the way.
