One of the most personal parts of wrapping is picking the colors. I don't believe there is a thread dedicated to it, so let's see if this will gain some momentum and potentially help all of us pick colors for future builds. If not, it should be buried in a few days
I really like this color combo, especially matched up with the fathoms. 14" foregrip and Alps/Batson hardware. I really like the way the diamond II epoxy lays up. I was only able to do 3-4 guides at a time though.
Has anyone had issues with them? I have a usps issue: package in same place for 1 week "in transit", supposed to be 2 day priority. I emailed them to see if they had any insight on the issue on 2/1. I have tried contacting them via phone and email for the past week with no response. Usually they...

No, I will not consider Shimano's boots. Please don't suggest them :)
I have worn out my USA made XtraTufs. They lasted me close to four years of hard use.
My question to those with the China made boots is:
How often do you use them?
How are they holding up?
Any noticeable differences from...
I have a 52 Hatt with a wiped out tower. Past super duty rubbing compound/insulator wax/alumiguard. It have heard there is a chemical process you can use to reseal the Al after resurfacing it. Does anyone know where I would source the materials?

I usually don't get pics of my trips down there but i invited my dad to go this time and he took some.
