About XS Scuba Airwave Inline Octopus

When you're taught how to dive you are given practice in buoyancy control more than any other skill.

Nice octo that breaths well

By Mikey

from Houston,TX

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

  • Comfortable Mouthpiece
  • Easy To Connect

Cons

  • Difficult To Retrieve
  • Difficult To Use
  • Hose Too Short

Best Uses

  • Eliminating Hoses
  • With Nitrox

Comments about XS Scuba Airwave Inline Octopus:

This is a great way to get rid of a hose. It breaths well and is not in the way. The only issue that makes it hard to use is the short hose. This short hose only allows use while keeping your head turned to the left. This restricts your head movememt making facing forward almost impossible. Rather inconvenient but for emergency use more than adequate.

    Comments about XS Scuba Airwave Inline Octopus:

    minus one long hose but comfortable octopus too. tried it with 3 different BCs and it was always placed too high so I have to hold the mouthpiece whith my teeth to prevent it from loosing. it's not too comfortable but it does the job so I still use it. maybe you'll have a better luck with another BC

      Comments about XS Scuba Airwave Inline Octopus:

      I have this mounted on a Sherwood Tortuga BCD, and of course it's great to not have another hose wrapping around me. I could stand for the inline hose to be even a bit shorter, but it works great. There when I need it and out of the way. This isn't the type of octo that you hand off; this is the one you use when you hand off your main reg. For that reason, I don't really understand why it's yellow, since this is NOT the reg your "buddy" should be reaching for, so explain that you just use the same "share air" method, except he won't have to share the main back...

          • Eliminating Hoses

          Comments about XS Scuba Airwave Inline Octopus:

          Great for streamlining and eliminating hose. Simplifies clutter. However the hose is too short and I have to hold the octopus in place with one hand other wise would experience jaw fatigue. But if you have to use your octo you should be heading for the surface anyways. Breathes very well at all recreational depths

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          SHAWN L  Use one less hose with this for octo!
          ALEXANDR K  On the picture I see a rather big radiator. But is it suitable for cold water?
          GARY P  I used the regulator for warm water only. 75 degrees F or above. Cold water diving is a rare event. If you are diving in water that requires attention to the second stage to prevent it from freezing, you should get a second stage specifally designed for cold eater. This is equally true for your safety second stage. If costs is a problem look for used regs. The XS scuba reg is not designed for cold water use.
