It's now mid winter in Wellington and I'm giving the freezing cold water the 'big finger' because I have just taken possession of a Max 3/3 titanium suit. For the last few years I have been getting less than a year 's wear out of my suits, which were an Oneill Psycho 2, Billabong Solution and a mid priced Xcel. These suits were never as warm as they claimed and within six months I had to start wearing a titanium rashie as the cells started to permanently compress in the neoprene. With the Seventhwave suit, I had a two hour session today feeling the warmest I have been in years, and there were still dry patches inside the chest area.
My main concern with buying a Kiwi made suit was whether it would be as flexi as the super-flexi suits made in Asia. Due to the Max's clever design and construction, it has EXCELLENT flexibility especially in the shoulders/arms. I bought my suit online and the price included custom fitting and was at my doorstep in a week. The suit is bloody warm and flexible, I could not be happier with my purchase."
