I have been looking to try out a nose clip setup and have been pondering a few things.

First, I saw a reference to always removing the nose clip on ascent. This seemed odd at first, but then I realized that you had to release air from your ears on the way up. Maybe could put it back into your lungs, but might be hard if you packed for the descent. But, removing the clips seems like it would a)be a pain in the ass to take on and off all the time, b) risk enhaling water when/if you have contractions (i've had this happen a little thru the mouth after a strong contraction that caused me to 'belch' out some air). Opinions?

Second, where do you get a nose clip? Everyone recommends the paradisia, but getting one seems to be damn near impossible. What are some other options.
