I just bought a Zeagle Ranger am looking for soft weights. I have never used soft weights but have been told that they leave a led residue when they dry. I was also told that the sea bags are extremely tough better than the other kind. Could you help me on this?
ROBERT M Have not had the "residue" issue with these weights, and they are very serviceable.
THOMAS M I have used Seabags - 2 lb. and 4 lb. - for several years and have never had one fail. They are indeed extremely tough. I mostly dive in New England and these weights have held up well being exposed to cold water. They are also more comfortable and a bit easier to handle than lead weights. I've been pleased with this product. Hope that helps.
PENNY W I brought these a couple of years and found them to be great--really like them and I have not seen any residue from them. They may take a little longer to dry than regular soft weights but prefer than over the other kind. Hope this helps. Penny
JAMES W They DO leave a lead residue that drains out of the sac while drying, AND, they take quite a while to dry completely.
I bought the soft weights when I first started diving primarily because I thought they would fit better in my BC weight pockets but if I had it to do over again, I'd buy vinyl coated hard weights........
