Alpha 8 Octopus

By William I.

 -  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.

I bought this as my Octo and it serves the purpose perfectly. I just went through my cert and I was the only one with my own gear. This reg had a different flow to it. I'm sure that was due to it being new but still great product and excited to have it as my back up.

Alpha 8 Octopus: With a bright yellow 36" (91.4 cm) LP hose and matching cover, the Alpha 8 Second Stage is a highly visible octopus (alternate second stage) that is easy on the budget.

The Alpha 8's super sturdy ABS/polycarbonate housing weighs just 6 oz. (170 g) and measures 2.9" (7 4 cm) in diameter. The lightweight design and anatomical mouthpiece translate into a second stage that won't cause jaw fatigue. The Alpha 8 Second Stage is a dependable downstream demand valve design. The Alpha 8 can be used with air or Nitrox mixtures up to 40% right out-of-the-box.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

..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!!!

I set up a new system and used the Alpha 8 with my new oceanic alpha 10 second stage. It worked well.

A good solid octopus

By JASON T.

from Chattanooga, TN, US

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

 

Great value

By Bubba

from Sulphur , LA, US

I ordered my wife and myself each one of these. They are a great value for your money.

 

Smooth Operator

By WILLIAM T.

What can I say - fortunately I've never had to use it. It does not free-flow, and it breathes as easy as the second stage on the Oceanic reg.

 

VERY NICE

By NOFD 8.

YOU CAN NEVER BE TO CAREFULL SO THIS IS PLAN B IF A EVER FAILS.VERY NICE

 

I recommend it for beginners no hassle

By Astrex

Well it real is simple to use with no problems just looks like its brother the Alpha 8 Regulator which i have and was the main purpose of me getting it.

By Gary C.

By PHX D.

Good reserve regulator.

By djjavi8

After my first dive whith this octo it`s work great and the price i think is good. I Really recomended this octo

 

Nice Octo

By Scooter

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.

 

Quality Octopus

By JTR

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

 

Basic no frill Octo that does the job

By RON F.

I wanted another full sized Octo, and did not want to spend a bunch of cash. I've dove this Octo on about a dozen dives, not long. To date it has been very reliable, with no free flows. There is no adjustment on this Octo, so if it does have issues, it is not easily adjustable on a boat for example. This low cost Octo is doing the job I need it to do. I breaths a bit harder than my Primary (Zeagle ZX), but then again, it's detuned, and does deliver plenty of air. My last Octo had multiple adjustments, and that is what went south, so IMO less maybe better. I have dove this Octo down to 85', and tested it there. A deeper profile would make for a better judgement, but I'm betting it would dive just fine certainly to rec depths and likely well beyond.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
ANN H  Also good product and good pricing
David 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.
