    The rebreather version of the Nova has a mouthpiece on a stalk instead of the oral nasal cup. How do use comms with this version? I tried once and had a heck of a hard time getting the mouthpiece back in.

Or just use a standard second stage in the open mouth area.
    That sounds good.
    It's easy to bite the mouthpiece again after changing BOV?
    And do you use it also with communications?

    So the Poseidon BOV mouth price tube fits in the pod as the KM instruction show? If so, nice!

    I have used the kirby Morgan also for a while, you can fit any mouthpiece into the pod. With a Bov I just used some bungee to keep it closer

    Haven't used the KM with comms yet, my comms are arriving next week then will have a go. And yes, mouthpiece is easy to bite and release as needed.
