    eBay tropic strap thoughts

    Hi

    Are there any owners of this tropic strap that care to share their thoughts?

    Iím after a tropic strap thatís on the softer side on the underside, and maybe a bit more flexible than others I have tried before.

    eBay tropic strap thoughts

    I recently picked up this tropic strap from Cheapestnatostraps:

    https://www.cheapestnatostraps.com/c...t=380070625296

    It is extremely soft and flexible, and doesnít pick up lint. Highly recommended. They also have another tropic style that looks almost exactly like the one you linked:

    This one is also very good quality, but it is neither soft nor flexible. It is stiffer and can stand up to a heavier watch head.

    Iíve had mixed results with Cheapestnatostraps before, so I bought these with some hesitation. However, I can say they were a very good purchase. Especially for the price.

    I recently bought one of these, it is certainly soft enough and looks great. My only minor complaint is that it took forever to arrive from Cyprus.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Iím really looking for a single keeper (non rectangle keeper) style. Call me OCD but thereís just something hat irks me seeing a keeeper that doesnít match the weave pattern of the main strap!
