I dig the Toxic rubber instead of the one it comes with, or, pick any nato or zulu that suits your fancy...
It's a very versatile watch.
Indeed, I dislike the rubber it came on as I can’t get the right size because I’m between holes. I picked up a few ToxicNATOs today and ordered some extra spring bars so I’ll experiment with different colors. How hard is it to get the spring bars in the Toxic Rubber?
You need the right spring bars. I think they are the 20mm x 1.78mm x .9mm tips shoulder-less https://www.toxicnatos.com/collections/ ... /toxicbars
Those look like the ones!

Way easier than pulling the ones out of the stock rubber.
They do look like a pain to remove.

I’ve had my straps for a few days and finally got more spring bars in today. I’ll post pictures of the straps as I wear them. Since I misplaced my Bergeon spring bar tool I picked up a Toxic Spring Bar TOOL and I believe it’s underpriced!

They are under priced for sure. I hope it worked out for you

It did, thanks! Admittedly I didn’t read the description, just looked at the pictures. Honestly I was impressed that for $9 it is metal.
Do you have any idea when the three watch roll will be back in stock or was that a limited run?
