Orion Pax,

I can't seem to find your post on how much the Rectract Coupler Fix costs with shipping. I believe it was $5.00 per set. If so, then I will send you the $5.00 through PayPal for one set for now.

Thanks very much.


ps. I have also enjoyed your Beast Wheel Pants and prop stuff. Thanks

This looks like a simply way to fix the very week point in this gear - Are you selling these ?

Interested in purchasing your braces.

Hey Orion, are you still selling these braces? I wouldn't mind buying some from you. Thanks in advance!
