    The GG BOV has a P-port, has Insp fittings (if that's what you want) and quite simply works well. How more simple can it get?

    And it is a simple thing to convert an existing GG Shrimp BOV to p-port. The changeover takes 1-2 minutes. Unscrew four hex screws, remove bite piece, insert p-port and screw back in and go diving.

    Just buy the Shrimp p-port adapter :-

    Other than the older GG BOV ( adverts for some here abouts ) and the old TECME BOV, the only options I can think of are:-

    1). to pick a BOV for the INSPO that has the same mouth-piece fitting as an APEKS or Scubapro valve and buy the p-port adapter from golumgear

    2). choose any INSPO compatible BOV and get TECME or narked@90 to make a custom P-port adapter if the manufacturer doesn't already do one.

    The later is probably more expensive than buying a shrimp in the first place ... did I mention I know a man who can get new shrimps cheap?

    You will probably be happier with a MK48 supper mask instead of the nova. The nose pinch can be a pain in the ass to use depending on the shape of your face and your nose to equalize with.

    It is awful nice to have the PODs that the supper mask has. If you should ever half to go onto OC. just take the pod off and the mask stays on your face and you can use a standard regulator. You do not have to remove your FFM then dig out your back up mask.

    John, not sure exactly what your issue is but I am presuming that they have supplied a sport with an R nozzle and mouthpiece? That's all you need to turn a sport into an r. The cone fitting undoes, lefty loosey, and there should be two o-rings on the nozzle. One on the body. The other in the recess needs taking off before you fit the mouthpiece then refitting to ensure it doesn't come off. If that helps all well and good, if not I have probably misunderstood.

    Yes Steve makes perfect sense ,figured it out turned the end of the mouth piece inside out placed over the nozzle and with a wooden lollipop stick flicked it over and hey presto mouth piece fitted ,trying it out sat to see how it compares to the NATO pod
