Comments about Sherwood Minimus Octopus, Yellow:

Have been diving with this secondary reg for 10 years now, Never had any problems. 400+ dives. Great set up, its small flat shape is well thought out. The Shadow plus fits on the inflator hose between the power inflator hose fitting and the BC connection eliminating one hose. This also allows the setup to be plugged into different BCs because it becomes part of the regulator setup. It becomes the octo/inflator like an airsource. I have breathed off this shadow octo many times testing it during saftey stops, breaths easy and no problems. Breaths so much better than Aqua Lung ABS. Similar model to Genesis "sidekick" for connection.

About Me Recreational Diver

Pros

  • Does Not Leak
  • Easy To Connect
  • Easy To Retrieve
  • Easy To Use
  • Reliable
  • Slim Design

Cons

  • Uncomfortable Mouthpiece

Best Uses

  • Last Resort
  • Upgrading Equipment

Comments about Sherwood Minimus Octopus, Yellow:

Good backup reg as long as you plan to upgrade sometime in the near-future.
I'm looking to detach this from my basic air-delivery system and attach it to a pony bottle instead.
Reg becomes difficult to breath with when air runs low or if you go past 50 ft., but ultimately a good temporary reg.

solid amd reliable octo

By AHarper

from Orlando, FL

About Me Advanced Diver

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Effortless Breathing
  • Very resistant 2 freeflow

Cons

  • No bubble skirt

Best Uses

  • Cold Water
  • Warm Water

Comments about Sherwood Minimus Octopus, Yellow:

Haven't tried it in extreme depths,
very resistant to freeflow due to horizontal build, only thing that could be improved is that becuase there is no bubble skirt, bubbles end up going in front of your face, no too big of a deal.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JOSHUA H  Came as a set.
Shopper  Can it use with Cressi BC Travelight lady? How to install? Does it easy?
JOSHUA H  It will install directly to your first stage regulator, not your BC. This is a standard second stage octo, not an integrated octo/inflator. Although it is easy to install on your first stage regulator, I HIGHLY recommend you take it to a professional to ensure proper instalation as with all dive gear.
Shopper  Is this octo okay with nitrox?
LeisurePro S  Yes, the Minimus octopus is Nitrox compatible to 40%..
