Hi

I'm looking at buying my own regulator but was wondering what the difference is between a 2nd Stage and Octopus or are they the same thing, just called different names by people ?

Cheers
Bob

An Octopus is a 2nd stage. The only difference between that and your primary 2nd stage is it usually has a longer hose to make it easier to share with someone, and is usually bright yellow or has some yellow on it to help your buddy find it easily.
