Re: Need parental help: Fortnite on Nintendo Switch

Do you want your 8 y.o. child playing a kill’em all game? I’d say wait till later. Maybe 5 years later.

Re: Best Single Pass Natos?

I like the single pass natos from Haveston. In addition to the nylon straps, they also have 'em in leather and canvas. Because of the thickness of the canvas ones, they don't work too well with short lugs. Haveston isn't budget priced like Cheapest Natos, but the quality is very good. If you don't ...

Cheapest Nato elastic straps are good. A few wears to break them in and they are very comfortable. Terry's top-shelf straps are awesome (we miss your shop Terry). I don't know the brand, but the single pass straps that GSD includes with watches are also top notch.

Re: Mr. Yao Crackpot's new release - Tornek Rayville

The plank concept isn't a terrible one, but it's kind of like overdoing insurance. Spare parts where spares may be tough to find in the future. Makes the assumption that damage will happen, that you won't sell the watch first, that you'll want to spend the money to repair the watch IF it's damaged....

Re: Mr. Yao Crackpot's new release - Tornek Rayville

Why bother? Aren’t there a half dozen other brands that make an equivalent that will ship within a few days?

Oh, sorry. The other brands don’t have the hands on dedication or craftsmanship.

Just finished The Devil Below. Could have been a decent monster flick but for the characters. To say most of them act like scared little children would be an insult to all the little ass kickers around the globe.

I owned a yellow kinetic Seiko Caesar a long while ago. Very difficult to get a charge built up.
