    Rubber Strap Options for BJ8050 EcoZilla

    Hello! after many Casio & Seiko watches I got me an EcoZilla and I'm loving it! awesome build quality and very unique style but I did not care much for the polyurethane strap So I decided to get the Suppaparts adapter, now I have to decide between a 24mm Isofrane ($100+) or the 24mm Black Cuda Rubber Strap ($40) that suppaparts sells.
    I own an isofrane and I love it but does anyone have any experience with the Black Cuda? how is the build quality and how do they compare? your input is greatly appreciated.

    I've heard people say on WUS forums that Borealis straps are almost as nice as Isofrane, but much cheaper. Might be worth looking into.

    I have 3 Isofrane straps that I ordered years ago when they were reissued. More recently I have ordered 1 Toxic NATO rubber strap (I think 22mm is their maximum lug size, thatís the one I have) and 2 Borealis rubber straps (they have a 24mm option, I ordered a 20mm and a 22mm). They all feel pretty much the same on my wrist. The main difference that I do notice is that the keepers on the Toxic NATO and the Borealis donít stay put nearly as well as the original Isofrane. But I have big wrists and there isnít much excess strap for the keepers to stay onto. Iím on the 3rd to loosest hole. Iíd definitely order the Borealis 24mm over another Isofrane.

    I also have a Borealis strap and I can say it is quite nice and very comfortable. I donít have experience with a true Isofrane because I couldnít fathom spending that much on rubber. If I were in your shoes I would go with the Borealis!

    I have DB's rubber strap on a couple of my watches and they are pretty nice as well.

    Borealis and obris Morgan both make excellent straps.......I have both, in various sizes and they are comparable to the one isofrane I have.....

    Borealis are $25US....OM, not sure, been a while.....
