    ANybody have a Quiksilver Cell 6 wetsuit, need a review?

    I have an old zipperless Billabong suit, proablaby 8 years old, she is tired, no holes or anything but no the most flexible thing compared to todays rubber. Anyway I have a chance at gettting a Quiksilver Cell 6 suit and I think this was their top of the line suit in 07 or 08 , the thing is new with tags still on it for a pretty cheap price. I need a 3/2 for late fall and early/late spring here in VB/OBX area. Are these suits pretty flexible and sealed? it worth buying? Anybody ever had one?

    i have 2 CL5s a 4/3 and 3/2 and theyre awesome. they are the step above the CL6 but i think the 6 is still a really good suit. if youre familiar with quiksilvers new suits at all the CL5 is now the Cypher and the CL6 is now the Ignite. i would get it if its a good price, i got mine for cheap and love em, the 3/2 is a chest zip which adds a lot more flexibility to the suit, but the 4/3 is still really flexible

    The cell 6 is the best 4 mil on the market from 06-08. I still have mine because every summer, i send it to quicksilver to get resealed, and every year, they send me a brand new one for free...

    Im holding on the mine until its dead. Its a shame they stopped making it. It feels like a 2 mil. You have so much mobility and warmth. I have the plain back zip. It is the money. For sure....

    If anyone knows where I can find them online, I would buy one.

    ohh, and over the past five years, ive had the ripcurl Fbomb, the oneill psycho 1 and 2. And I also an excel suit. I am comparing the cell to those suits. It beat them in every category. Warmth, comfort and durability.

    dude theyre all over ebay. check out the "bargain sports" store or their website at bargainsports.net. i got both my CL5s from them for about $50 a piece brand new, ive seen CL6s go for like $40 too depending on what thickness you want

    now that you mention it, the CL5 could arguably be better. I had 2 of those. That one had even thinner material, without the blue underlayer, so i feel like that one was really solid. It was thinner than the 6, but still really warm. I would take either. I will check it out. I actually have my C5 in the closet, it has a rip around the neck, but other than that its solid. I could get it patched up.

    The Cell 6 im looking at is the 2008 top of the line Cell 6, from what i can tell they had two models, the Glued and blind stitcheed moel and the HFT model withich head the Hollow Fiber technology neoprene and liquid taped seams and the water barrier at the neck. Anyway im trying to buy it, i figured its better than any 2010 suit for under $200, heard great things on surfermag's forum about them too.

    I pulled the trigger

    Thanks guys form your reviews and the reivews from the Surfermag forum i decided to buy the suit. ITs the 2007 quik cell 6 with hollow fiber technology wiht the liquid flex seal tape. So its a sealed suit and has the short back zip with the water barrier at the neck. ONe piece of neopren from the under arms to the ankles. I heard this is a great suit and for $122 including shipping i dont htink I did too bad. Now to sell my 2003 Billbong soultion 3/2 zipperless, at 35 years old i cant fight that neck entry anymore.

    yeah man definitely check them out on there, you can find some sick deals. my 4/3 has the neck water barrier thing that you pull over your head before you zip up the back and it works awesome, no water gets in past it. i just got the 3/2 a couple weeks ago but love it so far, its a chest zip and a little harder to get in and out of but its so comfortable and flexible and for $50 i think it was a steal
