They do look nice but we still get a good flow of orders to make replacements out of hypalon despite the price difference

I have to say I wouldn’t pay the difference, especially with the new Hypalon tubes that Zodiac are producing for some models. They are superior in consistency and quality to anything I have seen from the UK market.

Are Zodiac hypalon tubes cheaper than those produced by UK suppliers?

I have to agree the quality of the Zodiac hypalon tubes looks good after having a brand new boat in the workshop recently

Hi Dave. The price of a Zodiac Hypalon tube is around the same as a fully fitted UK Hypalon tube. The PVC ones are around 40% cheaper.

Yup, but they wanted Avons particular hyperlon which is why they bought them and then wound them down - I was bored stupid on the subject by an Avon/Zodiac dealer last year, but he could have been talking complete rubbish for all I know.
