I got an Elite Red and like it. Like Calif_Diver said about Yazbecks. I haven't used one but, I don't like the way they feel. If you wait a little longer they have a year end clearance coming up soon.

I tried on the Yazbek and Picasso. The Picasso fit better around the neck and head for me so I bought it. The stitching started coming out pretty quickly but the seams have held. I'm rough on my suit. I kayak in it and haul up on wash rocks just like a seal when I'm tired. Open cell suits are worth every penny.

Get a Rife I have one and love it but try and get one with knee and elbow pads for protection, from our rough beaches.

I've read on this board that a open cell is much warmer than a closed cell suit.  Would you say that a 7mm closed cell is equal in warmth to a 5mm open cell? 
Thanks.

 The Picasso suit I have is awesome it keeps you very warm and it fits like a glove. Be picky brow because not all suits fit everyone the same. :icon_thumright:

Went to the free dive shop today ( friday). Vanessa was very helpful and she is very knowageable. I bought a new Picasso its the new Green Reef open cell it has nice kevlar knee pads and also on the bum, suit fits awsome, also bought the picasso black team fins some socks and fin keepers we must of spent 21/2-3 hours there, if you have'nt been there check the place out, cool store. Vanessa will be having her discount sale in Nov, she will be sending out mass email, it's first come first serve, some very good deals unfortunatly my new suit wont be discounted. Thanks for everyones input Rock On fellow NCUWH's and thanks to Vanessa at free dive shop
