    Fitting rubber with large deployant--do I make one more cut?

    Hi all,

    Long-time Sinn admirer, first-time owner here. I am cutting the rubber strap to fit the U1000 and got to what I would call a borderline fit: not floppy but looser than I would normally wear, can stick my pinky in the space between my wrist and the strap. It could pass muster but it would bother the crap out of me all day.

    I've got 2 holes left on each strap piece. Wrist is about 7.25 inch.

    Anyone have any experience making that one last cut, and either regretting it or saying "ahh, just right"?

    Thank you!

    Consider your wrist will enlarge this summer.

    A bit tight (or too close to your wrist) now, then you'll be sorry in a few months.

    Generally a loose strap bugs you but a tight one causes your hand to fall off. I’ve experienced both and the too tight option is no fun at all.

    If you trim it, do the 6 side

    I'd encourage you to wait at least a week before you trim it again, and wear it a lot in the meantime. Once you cut it......

    Cut once, think (measure) twice. As the old saying goes.

    Thanks for the input folks! I've decided to forego the final cut and all is well. We can go on living now haha

    Wait!!

    Take out the dive extension. Its worth about one cut. Wear it like that for a while.
    Then decide.

    Assuming you have the large clasp.

    And yes, like they said above. Especially that its better to have the unequally short strap at 6.
