I've seen the "ridged straps" on the X-33's and wondered if anyone knows what aftermarket (if any) are available... I would like to try something on my 2254, but not rubber.. maybe carbon fiber or black leather or crock grain..

who all makes them?
thanks:thumbup1:

kevlar, carbon fiber, crocko grain... I see Mr Wilson has several.

Well, I thought I bought the kevlar, it now is called differently because it ain't kevlar anymore, let me look it up.

I think a ''real'' kevlar strap would look awesome on a 2254, a bulletproof combination..:D:D:D

as a matter of fact Mr Fergie,

I have talked to Lloyd over there earlier this week and have several items on the way from those fine folks as I speak. They do not have anything like the "ridged" X-33 type strap though unfortunately. I have purchased items from these folks and it was the first place I looked, they are very good at what they do.

But, I'm still looking, I wonder if Mr Wilson could share with me by PM where I might start looking, along with suggestions from you fine folks.

thanks,:thumbup1:

I'm sure the 'genuine' X-33 strap can be had from the folks at ofrei...

It might be nice to mix it up with the X-33 strap with a dressier buckle with the omega symbol on it to....

Hey Guys, to come back on a earlier remark I made...

The strap in this picture below....(on my SM300)



Is a Coramide strap, they use to be kevlar but now thay make them out of Coramide.

The strap in the picture below is a ''real'' kevlar strap..

Mr G.J. is that an original Omega coramide strap?

looks pretty cool to me. I just recieved a heavily padded strap
that looks similar (sort of ) to that.. going to see how that does.
