    What was that guy gonna do with the stick if the salty had attacked? He he.
    I'd want to be armed with a Ploprof, at least you could wack him over the head with it.

    He'd do the same thing as the police in the UK - he'd yell "Stop! .... or I'll say 'Stop' again!". They're only armed with sticks too. :p

    The PloProf is in the Top 3 of "watches I would not want to be beaned with". Probably the best quality of them too. The Invicta SAN III is pretty nasty too - in more ways than one. :eek:

    Just to add a dissenting opinion, I bought one for use while rowing (I am a competitive rower), and found that fastening it was often awkward. There was something about how the band caught on the buckle that made it an issue. I switched to a nylon Zulu band, and it has been without any issues.

    At the beginning I also found fastening awkward, but the rubber seems to soften after a while and it becomes easier. I find it very comfortable to wear.

    Very nice review bro. The Isofranes are awesome! I have 3 of them for my Seiko divers.

    If you want a much cheaper and more pliable option, check out the "Magnum XL" strap from ToxicNATOS. I have two and love them. They are $30 with free US shipping and orders over $50 are get free international shipping too. Terry is the owner, a US military vet, and a great person (live an hour south of me and have met many times).

    Nice thread resurrection.

    I bought a couple of ISOfrane straps, but found that they don't work well with my wide flat wrists, and tend to either prop the watch up above my wrist while squeezing the sides of my wrist, or they cause the watch head to move sideways towards my ulnar bone and I can't keep the watch centered on my wrist.
