Has anybody tried this one piece elasticated strap from Nick Mankey Designs yet, with the increase in price of Erikas straps the new Hook Strap from the USA could prove to be an alternative option.

The cap strap is also worth a view.  :whistle:

I await my order eagerly.

Strap arrived Tuesday, also arriving was one of the WatchGekko versions, neither will fit around my sling or the swollen wrist yet so opinions postponed for the time being, except to say that they were well packaged and only one needed tax and handling fees paying on it.  :sign_what:

Had mine fitted a few weeks now,so far so good.Im considering Erikas for another watch.

 

Erika's have gone up considerably in price over the last few months, going up from €50 - €75 / £63 I know they have added new sizes and colours but is it worth it?

The Nick Mankey are $29 us / £22 I realise you pay import costs of 30% but the two I've just ordered will be about the same as one Erikas.

I have a lot of Erikas and love them and will no doubt buy more but prices are now a bigger consideration.  :thumbsup:

Think I pad £15.00 import on the Nick Manky strap,still great value for the money.

Interesting (haven't been around for quite some time!) never heard of Nick Mankey before but have been wearing Marine Nationale (with a hook) Geckota/Zuludiver (bought several around Black Friday for £6.00 a piece) and also from Sophie at CheapestNatoStraps (all elastic variations on the original French Marine Nationale strap)

Just my preference, but I would pass on any strap I have to remove and reinstall spring bars every time I want to change a strap.

Normdiaz, you don't have to pass if you don't want to as there are 'single pass' versions available - simply thread them through the spring bars and off you go!
