Your thinking of 'Orca' type I should imagine...Its a Matt Fabric finish very Durable by all accounts and around a 10-15% premium over normal Hyperlon.
Sort of thing you could probabley nagotiate over if you were thinking of going New RIB

I do like the look of this fabric, but always thought it would be hard to keep looking good?
Suppose time will tell!

It certainly looks nice as a new product.

I'd like to see it after a while on a pontoon to see what scuffs etc look like on it and how easy it is to clean them up.

Yep I agree, because of its open weave finish dirt dose not just wash off & the ones I have seen close up at shows look marked with people just clabbering over them!

I've seen fabric impression hypalon "in build". It looks and feels great, but doesn't wipe clean. So don't like it too much...

Umm, maybe not a good thing in 5yrs time when your going at 'em with a scotchbrite pad and TFR.

The "Matt fabric impression finish" fabric has been used for years and in fact almost every MOD Halmatic Pacific and Arctic Rib has been fitted with tubes in this fabric. The Matt surface does tend to reduce a bit with a lot of use and wear.

We do stock the Matt finish in several colours, including the Military Grey, Orange, Dark Blue, Anthracite, and Black. We also have a very new fabric which is black and is a true likeness in feel to a soft velvet finish.

TTs Domino is a nice finish, doesn't seem to have marked. Not sure if that's matt or fabric impression finish. I think it's the former.

RMS has it on his too. Looks far nicer than the plasticky PVC looking shiny hypalon IMHO

Agree 'Domino' does Look Good..! I think the 'Orka' Type material has an EXTRA Layer..or two so in theory should last well.. It seems to be very tough stuff!

Its the latter....
TT's got OCD like me... once its out of the water it washed and scrubbed to a showroom finish

Agreed it does look nice it also gives a better grip when sat on the tubes
