    hi guys,

    Has anyone bought black diamond rubber from eBay before?

    It says the seller is cleaning warehouse but it seems quite a bit cheaper than anywhere else even cleaning warehouses own site. Just wondered if it's the real stuff.


    Cheers.

    Hi mate, I've just bought a pack of 10 for 15 quid but haven't used it yet!! It looks like the real thing,but I haven't bought it before so wouldn't really know. I'll let you know what I think later! ;)

    Don't pull them apart sideways. hold each piece separately in front of you. Push one side away from you pull the other towards you. They are only held together by a very thin sliver in the centre. Even with a slightly less than perfect tear they won't effect normal blading because the outside edges are pristine. By the by Moerman rubber bought in bulk often is still in twin strips as well.

    Been using it for over a year now and haven't had a bad strip yet...

    Just had a strip of bd arrive yesterday. Done two days with it and I love it. Been using razor for a long time but started to get annoyed with the drag and yes I tried using more soap. However the bd glided beautifully all day both days. I used a tad more rubber than with the red but I'm leaving less soap to detail and I don't mind paying that bit more if it cuts down my cleaning time on every house.
