How do you streamline your Inspo?

Since I started diving my Inspiration I have made a few modificatios, some for streamlining, some for general comfort - basically I mounted it on a standard bp+harness, shortend loop etc.
but what still makes me crazy - is my hanset and HUD cable. I made rings out of bunjee to fasten the HUD cable to the loop, and I keep the exess (again, I have shortened the loop) I keep inside the box - but still, at times it decides it wants freedom..
For the Handset cable I tried the same idea for keeping it atached to my arm, but it isn't very comfortable.

What do you guys do?

Re: How do you streamline your Inspo?

I guess back-mounting your counterlungs will help.

I wrap the HUD cable around the loop hoses a few times. This takes up slack without having to jam it in the case.

The Handset cable I have not had as much luck with yet.

I also put bungees and a butt plate on to make my Bailout more streamlined as I side mount it.

Re: How do you streamline your Inspo?

My is an Evo but...

removed D rings from wing and use D rings on my harness for hanging stuff like BO tanks.

Back plate and harness via DSS adapter bits

Removed Auto air and installed normal inflator, short (12") coragated hose, appropriately short LP inflator hose, and plain elbow at the wing instead of the pull dump elbow.

I fold the alarm hose inside the case

Hud is routed on right side with AP clips but hasn't been an issue for me. I was able to get the lights swapped top to bottom during the last head service so the HUD is correct on the right side.

Replaced the AP HP hoses to the SPGs with post recall miflex 40" hoses. Helps eliminate stiffness in the counterlungs.

Painted yellow shell violet (yes that did help with stream lining. )

Re: How do you streamline your Inspo?

when I'm a millionare i'll have a revo... and a meg. pelagian. mk 15. But since I lived six months living in a hut on the beach to save up for an inspo - i'll wait...

I do wrap the HUD around the loop - but this is minly a hassle...

A standard inflator is best for many reasons.

Violet? I'm sure it streamlines better, but in my opinion this should be ilegal...

Re: How do you streamline your Inspo?

Things I've done:
  • DiveRite Bungee Clips for attaching the OCB Hose to the HUD Cable, keeps it all together
  • At the top of the box, wrap the HUB cable around the exhale hose to take some slack up
  • For the handset cable, I have a piece of 3mm bungee (in a figure of 8) I've the small loop attached to the cable (tight) and have it a big loop to go around my arm, so it stop that from flying everywhere. Still too long mind.
  • Hollis Elite2 Harness
  • DiveRite Tech Butt plate
  • Removed the guages from the boots and put on Miflex hoses

Awaiting the post for (should be on their way!):
  • APD BMCLs (without MAVs)
  • rEvo 3 Button MAV (non-orfice) - so only have one MAV on my chest.
