You have to do a lot of thinking before going into buying a rebreather!

Firstly skills - are different and new on CC than OC

Secondly diving - what kind of diving are you doing? if you are doing sports diving i.e. down to 40m then the inspiration is a good choice, but not necessarily good for your 100m dives (main reason - your supply gases only come in a 3l - when your at 100m even on a breather 3l doesn't last long!!)

I stronly recommend you talk to Andrew - about this - he has a thread on his website about your first rebreather (http://www.admdiving.co.uk/Library/1st-Rebreather.aspx)

Do you have any idea what you are on about? With respect, your advice above would suggest not. The Inspiration has a proven track record for dives in the 100m and sub 100m region. The scrubber duration AND NOT the 3l cylinder will most likely be the limiting factor on any significant time at 100m.

the inspiration is what you want for safety, depth, maintanace its not as cheap as some however no way near as expensive as others, also for a bit more safety get a 4th cell holder for the vr3 you enjoy the dive a bit more!
