    I have had this octo for about a year, but I plan on replacing it with something nicer. From the get go, this octo has leaked or free flowed with regularity. I got my DSO to take a look at it, and we ended up having to restrict the air flow enough to make breathing difficult. A friend of mine also has this octo, and his has since cracked, rendering it useless.

    Comments about Oceanic Swivel 180° Degree Octopus, Yellow:

    I have had this octo for 5 years. Breaths easy. Have had no mechanical issues with it. Design is poor. The streamline design puts the exhaust right under the mask. Can remove your mask.

        Comments about Oceanic Swivel 180° Degree Octopus, Yellow:

        I've had this Octo for 3+ years. After de-tuning it, it has been a reliable back-up. It does breath wet and takes some effort, but again, it is not meant to be a primary reg. Price was right and the swivel makes handing off nice and easy.

        Comments about Oceanic Swivel 180° Degree Octopus, Yellow:

        The swivel makes buddy breathing the best thing since sliced bread.

        I've had two units for about two years and on the first dives I had free flow problems. I sent the units back to LeisurtePro and they replaced seals, which cured the problem, once and for all. Apparently some units had bad seals.
