I dont understand the socks not being but I do undrstand the seals, latex is a delicate meterial that degrades at a undetermind rate, most manufacturers do state that letex seals are not covered on the warrenty card.

Re: Companies that rock

Desperate measures, for forwarding my details to palm as an item only used twice due to injury had fallen to bits out of warranty. Which leads me to palm. For repairing said Cag out of warranty over Christmas, completely re sealed new gaskets the works,free of charge even though i was willing to pay.

Loved it reminds me of the not so seroius days, te swimmers didn't seem to help them selfs much (no offence) but maybe a club wwsr course could be aranged.

They are good fun and as a group you may learn alot from them resulting in swims not being as long.

But looked like a great fun day out.
