    I picked up a Diving Concepts Z Flex suit in need of some repairs. The boots leak, and I'm going to put new neck/wrist seals on it as well. I took the old neoprene boots off and will replace them with latex socks. The area the boots/socks glue to has a lot of old glue on it. Should I try to smooth it out, or will the rough surface be good? Thanks!

    My personal preference is neoprene socks and rock boots. The neoprene adds some thermal protection, is fairly easy to patch and can be sized a little big tor room for more thermals. Rock boots can be laced up tight to keep air from collecting in the boots and help eliminate the fin straps from pulling the boots off of the heel.
