Another material that runs thicker than the industry average in 2X, thinner in 4X, and just over in 6X.   While SA doesn’t market this material as being especially supple, we felt it was on the supple side.  Consequently it was not one of the stronger materials. We like how they advertise the average break strength instead of their maximum, unfortunately our tests showed that this material broke under their advertised average nearly every time, especially in 6X.  This material seemed to be right in the middle of the pack with a solid product at a good price.
