i use the qs cl6. its only a 4/3 but i use it all the time. costs like 350 in stores but can find it online for about half. great wetsuit no problems so far (2 years) and keeps me plenty warm in the water even now.
I am a Hyperflex user all the way. Have owned Oniells, Rip Curls and Billabong and all have fallen apart and started leaking much sooner than all my Hyperflexes have even with more use. Everyone likes to bash these suits but I have never been warmer and more comfortable in my life. My 5/4/3 flow is incredibly comfortable and toasty.
I think I'm the Matt Johnson of Maryland , maybe I should rename myself Waxer . I have been praising these suits down here for years and very few people believe me. I also surf more than most so it's not like I am a weekend only guy. In the last 7 days I have logged close to 13 hours in that suit and am outlasting my friends every session and have been doing that every swell and my suit still looks like new.
Oh no not Jack Barlow! He was such a tight a$$. Well at least Jack lived, Waxer was killed in Vietnam which sucks. Why do you get to be the one with the hot wife (The point Grinder), my girl ran off and got married while I was in the service . Ok I'll stop now.

I like my Hyperflex 4/3 flow a lot but I just think that the chest zip could be a little more watertight, it just seems to easy for water to get in with both sides open, but I think the Amp takes care of those issues. Eventually, Ill buy an amp, but the Flow is serving me well for Wrightsville beach. I also wished they had a back-zip version of their suits, because chest zips can get annoying sometimes to put on
