One of their best Ferg!

Put my C65 on a green/black Cordura hybrid strap. Definitely prefer this to the Barton, although I'd have liked a shorter version ...

^^ IMO that looks FAR better on the Cordura for strap colour. The Barton looked too washed out. Good upgrade!

Is that one of CW's High Density Webbing straps, Ryan, or another brand?

Looks neat by the way.

Cheers Guy.

It's a Morellato "Netball" strap (who makes up their strap names?? :? )

First thoughts are that it looks and feels a good quality strap.
We'll see how well it holds up over time, especially around the strap holes.

It's pretty flexible straight out the pack which I guess is down to it being silicon and not rubber.
Not to be confused with the nasty, fluff-catching silicon found in cheaper straps though.

Cost me about £30 from Watchbandcenter (cheapest available) and also comes in a few other flavours :thumbup:

@StrappedUp - cheers Ryan.

Sounds similar in concept to the Flyboard leather/rubber strap I have from Watchgecko on my C8 M2.04 LE

That's a nice shade of yellow :thumbup:

Maybe it is rubber after all then? The Flyboard you have is the same base strap with a different top 'skin' AFAIK.

Certainly doesn't feel like any silicon straps I've tried, including the Barton Elite.

Pretty sure its rubber. Certainly feels like it to me.

Yup, good dark shade of yellow. Might even try it on my C60 Kingfisher yellow and C70 Ascari.

^^^ would also match the GMT hand of the MK2 C60.

I spent the entire time I owned one looking for a yellow strap that matched the colour.
