Re: Octopus, or no Octopus?

Go Pony . I have carried one for many years and never needed for a real emergency till this last Sunday . 75' of water off ponce ,half way through my dive when the fitting at the first stage failed , instant NO AIR . An octo would not help very long because air was escaping at a rapid rate (got it turned off before it emptied ) . Most divers dont use them , they are a bit of a pain , but I sure as hell am a beliver !!!
