Nice Octo

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.

..had nothing but problems

... 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!!!

Alpha 8 Octopus

By

from Chattanooga, TN, US

When I found that parts to repair my old octopus second stage were no longer available, I purchased an Alpha 8 octopus for my system. I am using it, at present, while diving at Grand Cayman Island. I have found, by using it as my primary, that it is a very easy breathing second stage. I highly recommend the Alpha 8 second stage as both a primary, and octopus second stage.

A good solid octopus

By

A good solid octopus. i've owned it for at least three years it's been in the water hundred plus times and it breathes great. I would not hesitate to use it as a first stage. Oceanic has been tried-and-true from my perspective

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ANN H  Also good product and good pricing
DAVID E H  Great value for the money. Highly recommend!
RON B  Simple, cheap, has been working for me for 4 years.
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????
Scott M  THANX FOR YOUR WILLINGNESS TO ANSWER ME,I DO TAKE MAGNESIME TO HELP WITH MY BLOOD CLOTTING TOO,THANX AGAIN!!!!
Anna M  I'm with Monica. And if your physician doesn't feel qualified find one that specializes in sports medicine. They will know the answer.
GARY M  I do have the alpha 8 octopus and am a factor 5 clotter, I have taken warfarin for the last 18-20 years, 3 years ago I took up scuba, just logged my 28th dive last week in Roatan, my Doctor is fine with diving, does not like my hockey playing or riding the Harley without a helmet, be smart, dive safe and welcome back to the tribe!
Monica s  I would suggest you consult a doctor who can approve your condition to dive.
Shopper  Will this reg hook to a oceanic zeta 1 st stage and work well with it?
Bubba B  I think most of the thread sizes on these are standardized.
RON B  This Octo works with most modern 1st stages. This is a nice octo and I like the yellow hose as it stands out. Good backup at a bargain price.
STEPHEN S  I dive this octo all the time. Works great. Zeta 1st stage??? Thought the Zeta was a 2nd Stage paired with a CDX 1st stage if I remember correctly. I have this octo on my CDX and had the Alpha 7 on the SP. I don't foresee a problem hooking this up to any first stage with standard regulator port sizes and intermediate pressure withing the standard range. If you're not doing super deep dives, this is a fine choice.
