    Expensive but well worth it
    1 piece lasts a long long long long time compared to normal rubber
    It is silicone rather than natural rubber like the others
    Glides better than anything else
    Slightly longer front to back so will behave a little differently in modded s channels but a better fit than unger in an ettore channel, wagtail or liquidator

    I use it, like Davey says it lasts ages. I find it difficult to cut to size accurately though.

    I never cut to size in the channel
    I lay the channel next to the rubber and use a scraper blade to cut exactly the right length
    Doing it in the channel seems very inaccurate also it can stretch while pulling it in the channel then shrink back gradually once you have cut it leaving it too short

    Used it since day one and can't fault it. But that doesn't mean anything as line I said used it since day one so don't know any better haha. I like it, glides well with GG4 and lasts a long time. Make sure you don't cut it to length in the channel though.

    I love razor red would never go back to unger
    I actually don't think it glides as well as unger soft till it's been used for a few hour or soaked in hot water
    But one thing for sure it lasts for what seems a eternity
    Doesn't line as easy either
