    Enlarging the image, it looks like there may be alignment keys on the suit-side ring, but it is not clear how exactly it goes together from 2 pictures.
    If not, I guess the impact of an alignment issue would somewhat depend on both the absolute and relative rigidity of the suit-side and glove-side rings.

    I sent a request for pricing and availability to my LDS (NESS). Lets see what John comes back with.

    One of my friends may be getting that 4th E setup. I'm curious about it, too.

    I ordered a 2nd drysuit from Seaskin in the UK. Slated to arrive sometime in September. I got the Si Tech oval wrist rings and bought the Ultima system separately. The Ultima box arrived today. So I guess I have 2 mos to get those 720s mounted! :)

    @Degenerate one of the first equalizing methods I tried for the gloves was cutting short length of plastic coffee stirring straws. OMG so uncomfortable! Way too stiff. Right now I've been just pulling a bit of the wrist cuff of my undergarment under the seal. Now, if I had a massive glove leak, then I'd get a flood into my drysuit arm. And taking off the dry glove underwater and trying to stuff that undergarment back up my wrist would be pretty impossible.

    So maybe that's not a good system except for recreational dives.
