Most Liked Positive Review

 

Does the job

Good octo. Doesn't free flow and always works (I test it at depth on every dive). I didn't need an expensive one as it will only ever be used to get me to the surface in an emergency.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Could be better, but it works

This is my backup. It is not nearly the quality of my Mares Proton 42, but hey its the backup. This thing functions. Thats the important thing.

octo- mares prestige

By Daddy R.

from Harrisonville, MO, US

this is a great octopus regulator. breathes easy. I like the braded hose. Mouth piece fits well. no fatigue or sore jaw. I recommend this to all.

 

Great Piece of Equipment

By Deep D.

This equipment worked well and without problems. I used it in cold water, at altitude. It performed brilliantly.

 

Mares Prestige

By Shane S.

from Wake Forest , NC, US

Haven't used it yet, but looks good. I like that it came with a slightly longer hose than others I was looking at, and it's a flex rather than a rubber hose. Can't really go wrong with Mares.

 

Good octopus

By Benjamin H.

from Cottage Grove, OR, US

Good Octopus. Free flows sometimes... especially at first. Doesnt seem to free flow anymore now that it is broken in. I have around 30 dives with it.

 

Mares Prestige Regulator

By HAROLD H.

from Palm City , FL, US

I bought this as an octopus safe 2nd regulator. It works well and hope I don't need to use in an emergency

 

great octopus

By L M.

from KC, MO, US

So far so good after 5 dives. I always test it and it works flawlessly as expected.

 

Good Octopus

By Greenturtle

from Singapore, Singapore, SG

Used it for several minutes towards the end of dive (probably too little) but was working as desired.

I need to replace my octo, this seems well made, and has a longer hose than some other octos.

I have a Atomic Z2X Reg and I am looking for a safe second... Which ones will work with my atomic first stage? Do you have any recommendations? I would like to stay inexpensive... Will the Mares MV and perstige work with my reg...?
Shane W on Jan 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Most first stages are universal so it should fit. I have a ScubaPro and it works fine. I am unsure from your question if you are looking for a primary reg or just a backup octopus. This is unbalanced so I personnally wouldn't use it as a primary reg; it is strictly used as an octopus (backup) and will not breath as smooth as a balanced second stage at depth. However, as a backup it is great and you can't ever beat Mares quality.
If you are looking for a primary second stage I would always recommend a balanced reg. Yes they cost more but are worth the money.
What sort of temperatures is this octo best suited for?
A shopper on May 24, 2011
BEST ANSWER: 50 F is the generally cut off for "cold water". 50F and above is fine for this octo.
what is the depth this octo is good for? cold water?
A shopper on May 24, 2011
BEST ANSWER: This particular octo is not great in cold water. Check out mares' Ice Extreme or Abyss octos both of which are great in cold water and at depth.
is this octo nitrox compatible?
A shopper on May 24, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes up to %40
