THE BATTLE OF TWO ULTRA HIGH END WETSUITS
We get a lot of questions about the differences between these two wetsuits. Being the top of the line suits from Rip Curl and O’Neill you might want to know what you’re getting when you’re dropping $500 or more. In this review I’ll be comparing the 4/3 Flash Bomb Plus, and the 4.5/3.5 PsychoFreak. I haven’t tried these out in the water, so some of this review is speculation, or based on customer feedback I have recieved, and all of this review is solely my opinion. Everyone has their personal preferences when it comes to wetsuits, so if you want to hear more opinions feel free to give us a call and talk to one of the wetsuit experts here at Cleanline Surf.
Rip Curl has just released their Hooded E-Bomb Wetsuit in a 4.5/3.5 thickness and we’ve got it! This new wetsuit fills a gap for those people who like to brave colder waters in a more flexible 4/3 suit, but still want the hood to stave off the ice cream headaches, and flushing that can happen sometimes when not wearing a hooded wetsuit.
Rip Curl E-Bomb 4.4/3.5 Hooded Wetsuit
Basically this wetsuit is the exact same as its 5.5/4.5mm counterpart, so here’s what Caleb (A Cleanline Employee who wears the Hooded E-Bomb) has to say about it.
I have been surfing in the Northwest since I was 8 years old, all the while struggling to find the right cold water wetsuit with a hood that fits. I have finally found it with the E-Bomb 5.5/4.5. It is the most flexible and warm suit, and the hood is the most comfortable on the market. I highly recommend this wetsuit for anyone surfing cold water anywhere!
