Best rubber strap for mm imo is borealis 22mm. Just as good as isofrane but not quite as chunky for fraction of price.

Here they are-

I got an isofrane for mm, then got one of these. Isofrane was in a drawer for 6 months.

Got one for the Ploprof in orange to try.
Price is great at under $30 shipped.
High quality product with really nice buckle.

On my mm I had the classic one, like the gen. The one of 24mm that you had to cut to 21mm.

My mm is with Lee now

Still my favorite those straps.

Combine them with the correct Elias Buckle and you’ve got a winning combination.

Earlier this year there was a Japanese source that had old stock still there. Currently there are still some available NOS.

I wonder why the keepers are to tight for the strap end, only the smaller portion at the end will go in?

Hunting for keepers. Mellons, you had a lead to someone who has/had larger ones, metal?

@Yoda unfortunately no longer. I had a source who was able to manufacture custom aluminium keepers, not in game anymore. Zeke back in the day made some from flat pieces of aluminium, but old thread was on hf1. I have two spare rubber keepers here might fit is you send me your dimensions.
