    Isofrane RS Buckle Brushed?

    I am considering an Isofrane strap for my Squale 1521 50 Atmos. It's a blue dial with bead blasted case. I don't love the rubber strap it came with, and am thinking Isofrane is a good alternative. My hope is to match the buckle to the bead blasted case (or close to it). The IN buckle would match well, but isn't available for 20mm strap. The website says the RS strap is 'brushed' but every picture I can find shows a more polished look. Does anyone have an RS buckle, and if so is it polished looking or does it have a more brushed look? I appreciate it.

    Can anyone post live pics of an RS buckle? Perhaps that would be useful. Thanks!

    Here's a bead blasted Hirsch buckle left and the Isofrane RS right.....maybe that is a better comparison.

    Those two pics really give me a good sense for where the Isofrane buckle falls compared to bead blasted and polished. Thank you! How do you like your Hirsch straps vs Isofrane?

    Your welcome.

    I think the Isofrane is probably the best overall rubber diving strap around, the only thing I don't like about it is the thickness, on my skinny wrist it sort of looks out of place. The Hirsch Robby shown is also excellent, it's very well made, and very comfortable, more of a sporty strap than a dive strap.

    Thanks. I ordered an Isofrane. Figure if I don't like it I should be able to flip it without much, if any, lost value. I have over a 7" wrist so may be a good size for me.
