    gotta say the silicone sure stands up well compared to the latex.
    does anyone know if the Si-tech seals will fit into ZIP cuffs ?

    the paradigm - of a removable seal, irrespective of which brand you chose
    though - is truly brilliant - only way to go in my opinion.

    Not too sure but the one nice thing about latex is you can buy the older style glue-on seals and reapply them to the crazy expensive DUI zip rings. You can't do that with silicon seals so this is another reason to go with the Si seals in my book. Full disclosure, I dive a DUI with Zipseals and like it. Don't love it however and if I were to do it all over again, I wouldn't buy DUI.

    I dive Si-Tech with silicone neck and wrist seals. It's a dream to use, dream to clean and dream to change when the seals inevitably pop. Their cuff lock system means you can use supermarket gloves if you need to, too. I reckon you could use traditional latex seals (the type designed to be glued in) without needing glue, too. The inner cuff ring will lock just about anything in place and seal it.

    The Si-Tech system will take either type of seal.

    No they are completely different types of seal systems. You can glue ordinary latex seal into the zip system but not silicone - unless someone know how to glue silicone seal in place ???
