Sherwood Scuba, an established leader in designing and manufacturing efficient and reliable scuba diving gear, has announced the launch of the new Sherwood Gemini Breathable Inflator. The Gemini will be available for purchase in February of 2007 through Authorized Sherwood Retailers.
With more than fifty years of experience producing dive equipment and accessories, Sherwood has applied its "simply reliable" values in the development of the durable Gemini.
By combining the BC inflator and Octopus (safe second) functions into a single unit, the Gemini maximizes convenience by placing these important controls in location familiar to virtually all divers that have trained with a traditional buoyancy compensator. As an added bonus, one hose is eliminated to simplify and streamline gearing up.
The Gemini couples to a high flow capacity hose attached to the first stage regulator to supply both the BC Inflator and Octopus. The unit then lies flat against the BC minimizing bulk but in a location that is easy to access.
The easy-to-operate power inflation, oral inflation and exhaust trim valve controls are designed to remain similar to conventional BC controls to take advantage of single-handed control familiar to virtually all trained divers.
If you need to quickly access the Octopus, simply reach for the Gemini that has been used to maintain buoyancy control throughout the dive. The breathing performance of the Gemini is superb -- in many cases exceeding the performance of primary regulators. There are no diver-operated controls to adjust as the Gemini is capable of providing ample air delivery without any annoying tendencies to free flow when unattended. Simple, reliable and Free Parts For Life.
