Getting some recent 'buyer comments' from 'Corey' customers might be a good idea.

I've used Corey's float bags in my F1 SOF for several years. They're well made ... never had a leak in 'em. Never had a problem with Corey's service as some people have reported.

I've also used NRS float bags. Bags made 7 - 8 years ago were lousy ... could never stop the leaks. They changed their manufacturing procedure and materials a few years ago and those float bags have been great.

I once made float bags out of clear vinyl. Getting a proper fit wasn't as easy as it seems and they weighed a ton.

One option is Jeff at http://www.kudzucraft.net ... he also makes custom float bags. I've read that they're fine.
