X-Flex = X-tremely Cheap
By nuts September 30, 2011
I love XCEL suits and have, not exaggerating, 4 of them on rotation right now. However this one was so lame I had to dump it off on some poor east coaster and took a giant loss.
The construction feels very cheap, and water would get in through my legs and arms openings. On one bottom turn, water shot up all the way to my butt from my ankle.
My buddy who bought one the same day I did on WM used his 3 times before the knee pad ripped out. Now he can't even unload it on some poor east coaster but has to send it in to XCEL.
From now on I'm staying with Infiniti line of XCEL's.
