The best octo
By Rum Runner
About Me Advanced
Comments about Sherwood Shadow Plus Octopus, Yellow:
It's a beautiful little thing, I highly recommend it. Never used Sherwood products before in 28 years of diving but this one has me impressed; first time using an in-line octo and will never use anything else. If you're looking for an in-line octo to upgrade this is the one to go with.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This octo delivers. Breathes just fine for an octo, have not had it free flow at all, and since it sits in line with the BCD inflator hose, I always know it is exactly in the same place all the time (and not loose dragging in the sand when my out of air buddy grabs my 2nd stage out of my mouth). An unobtrusive octo that you can quickly get to your mouth at a fraction of the cost of an air integrated BCD inflator, and this stays with your reg if you swap between multiple BCDs like I do.
A great product for the traveling diver
With the airlines current practice of imposing fees for excess or overweight baggage, the Sherwood Shadow Plus Octo is a nice product. It eliminates the excess weight and bulk of a traditional octo. Hoses are heavy. I have always used an air 2 type system, but have never liked that fact that I cannot quickly interchange my regulator with a BCD that isn't equipped with an air 2. The Shadow Plus solves this problem by making the alternate air a component of the regulator rather than the BCD. It is very compact and doesn't get in the way at all. It has easy access and never ends up dangling behind you. I haven't experienced any freeflow issues. The only negative comment I have is that it is slightly more difficult to breath through than my primary. But hey, its a back up system that is not intended to used under normal circumstances. For a back up system, I can deal with this.
Perfect for dry suit set-up

One less hose to keep track of for my dry suit setup, and is pretty easy to retrieve, so long as you remember where to look in an emergency. breaths as easy as my primary (older Sherwood Magnum II).
slimmed down by rig
By Tim C
it added a little bulk to the front around the BC inflator but the elimination of the extra hose and slimming down of the regular where great
