I offer a regulator set from Sherwood Scuba. Completely it contains the following components:
- Sherwood Maximus 1st and 2nd stage with Octopus Minimus and inflator hose
- Sherwood Brut 1st stage with inflator hose e.B. for dry suits
- as an alternative to the Octopus Minimus, there is also the Octopus Shadow
The buyer is welcome to choose which components he needs. The price indication refers to the complete package (with an octopus).
I can mount the Octopus on the second 1st stage, or you can simply have it done at the first revision.
Sherwood vending machines have an excellent reputation, especially because of their cold water suitability. The Maximus is Sherwood's highest quality regulator. Due to the adjustable breathing resistance and a heat/moisture storage in the 2nd stage, it offers excellent breathing comfort.
The Maximus is a bit older (date of purchase 1998). He has only done a few dives. The 1st stage Brut is more recent (2005), also the Shadow is newer, but I don't know the date of purchase anymore.
Everything has not been dipped for a long time and was then stored properly (i.e. dry and dark in a box).
I connected the machines to a bottle again and tested them. From what I can check, they still work fine. In particular, the CBS system apparently works in both 1st stages. This is a special feature of Sherwood regulators: no water penetrates into the 1st stage. Instead, the mean pressure is adjusted via a valve through which some air constantly bubbles outwards (the air loss is about one breath per dive, so it is negligible). This keeps the 1st stage dry and clean - a good icing protection.
Of course, I can't look into the machines and I don't have a test bench at home. But everything I can test "from the outside" is fine. In any case, the machines must be inspected by a certified Sherwood dealer before use. However, this should be a matter of course with used regulators anyway.
