    I bought this to go with my GT3 CDX5 regulator.
    Its slimmer and did not free flow like the GT3 did.Using it as my alternate second stage. Its easy to see, Never had to use it, but checked it out while diving and worked great, no problems. Im sure it will be very reliable when needed. Again ask Aarron for help, he helped me get the whole set up for a great price.

        Comments about Oceanic Alpha 8 Octopus, Yellow:

        ... I wore out many regulators..used Scubapro Air2 for years ..we got new regs. & decided to this octopus..they both leaked & free flowed, causing us a lot of hassle clearing & re-purging/ We used the ball holder..some said because they hang up caused the problems???. We are glad some users had good luck..we did not!!!. We are going back to the Air2!!!

              I bought this for my trip to Cancun. Leisure Pro was the least expensive I found. Worked well as my aux regulator. I have a Scuba Pro MK25 first stage and there were no issues diving past 100 feet with this.

                This is a very functional octopus and decent quality. It doesn't even compare to my Sherwood SR1 primary, but for an octo it's nice. It does breath a bit hard and I would not recommend this as a primary regulator. Most important is that it does "NOT" free-flow!! What a relief

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Is the max flex braided hose yellow or black?
                PRESTON P  It should be yellow. It should also be a 36" for an octo. But they sent me a 30" black. As such, the braided hose sits uselessly in my gear bag for the day I need a new one.
                Shopper  Can this Octo be used in deep dives (100+ feet)?
                LeisurePro S  Oceanic regulators are CE certified to a maximum operating depth of 50 M (165 FT).
                Scott M  I have been out of the water since 2010,yet scuba is still with me.. The ? that I have is: as of lately I was medical told that I have to take cumoden to help control my blood clots. I have only used nitrox to dive if you were deemed to have the same thing that I have would you still dive????
                Monica s  I would suggest you consult a doctor who can approve your condition to dive.
