    What other rebreathers are people here using for extended cave dives?
    Which aspects of the Inspiration makes it unsuitable for cave penetration dives?

The counterlungs and scrubber canister can be fitted with a one-way valves for purging out condensation. Also, I heard a rumour that someone will be using a VOYAGER in October to make a world-record cave dive.
    Some of very, very experienced good Italian cave diver as Luigi Casati, Alberto Cavedon use Voyager Rebreathers for there cave diving. Remember, one time I want to dive the very nice Fontanazzi cave in nord Italy. But when I reached the cave at 10AM I meet this two guys preparing for a exploration dive on there Voyager CCR. They where just ready to go, so I went to a other cave (Oliereo Cogol dei Siori) only 1 km from Fontanazzi to make a dive of about 120 min. on my homemade rebreather. After the dive I made a break for eating and after that geared up for a second dive. Get 100 min of diving there, as I want not to push the filter of my breather to much. When I leaved the cave in the afternoon i get a search for a hotel to stay for the next day. When I passed Fontanzzi cave, i meet Luigi Casati who finished his dive just a few min. before. Alberto Cavedon was still in the cave for more than 3h of remaining deco.
    What I want to say is that it is the singer, not the song. And this guys are very, very good singers on there Voyager.
