I can already guess who'll have the first answer for this:

I've replaced more latex wrists and necks than I'd care to have at work, to the point I can more often than not leave them looking better than the OEM seal and bone dry every time. I also hate doing them by this point.

Never replaced a neoprene seal, though. Friend of mine picked up a neoprene suit at a GREAT price (I got it for an even better price, and it was too short for me. My new Jetsuit fits NICELY, though), and blew out one of the neoprene seals trying it on. Good thing it fit him perfectly, as he guaranteed the sale when he did that. If I can't fix it for him and have to replace it, we'll likely just put Viking HD latex cones on, but it did lead me to wonder what is invloved in replacing a neoprene seal. Haven't been able to find much info.

So, anyone ever replace a neoprene seal, or familiar with what it entails?

Mike,
Ghost will have to give the answer. I never replaced any of the neoprene seals. By the end I should have done both the neck & wrist seals. However I went up to 160 lbs & the Unisuit didn't fit anymore. The same thing happened on my Imperial bubble suit when I went from 125 up to 140 lbs.

P.S. How is the leg?

Was pretty sore Friday, but not bad today. Still a bit swollen, hasn't bled again since Friday, so I think I'll go back to the Doc tomorrow so I can get back in the water. It's not like it'll get wet. I hope.
