My fusion has latex wrist seals that are melting, so I am thinking of a ring system and trying out the silicone seals, I was talking to Jeff Smith at Pacific Wilderness about them. He was of the opinion that the silicone seals do not return to their original shape, and stretch out making them worthless after a while. He thought that they might be fine for the few dives a year type of diver, but the every weekend type might be best off with the cheaper latex.

Anyone had this experience?
