    The purpose of the Cave Diver's Forum is to provide a place on the internet for civil discussions of anything cave diving related. This site is not a place to learn how to cavern or cave dive. This site contains plenty of comments, stories, reports, and opinions. Be careful, responsible, and mature, both in your posts and how you use anything you read here. Moderators do not monitor the accuracy of the content of threads posted here, and the opinions posted herein are personal opinions, and as such can be misleading and/or inaccurate. Entry into any overhead environment without proper training and equipment can get you killed.

    New to diving and not yet cavern or cave certified? Watch this short movie if so. It might save a life; yours!

    WTB: used UWLD 35

    I think I've found one but, one of the guys interested in your light is my primary cave buddy and as soon as I upgrade his 10 watt will look like a backup light, so don't lose hope just yet ;)

    Cave diving and Wreck penetration (similarities)

    What is too soon to start CCR?

    Learn proper buoyancy control and warm gas has zero impact on a rec type dive!
    'Better feeling' is not an argument, certainly not for a 10k dollar device that can kill you if you screw up.

    That is simply not true..
    I already gave you one benefit. Also buoyancy independence from breathing (photographers) is another one. Generally the whole feeling into the dive is a very different one...

    It absolutely is the same risk from a rock bottom perspective.
    All the arguments you mention are valid arguments, but they all play in the "convenience" zone and not rock bottom critical failure....

    He asked for opinions. Nobody is telling him what to do or not to do.

    There're no benefits in using a CCR for rec dives, but there're a bunch of downsides.
