New Nike Wristbands

I know there are some wristband collectors on here, but has anyone tried any of these new Nike wristbands on TW? There's a horizontal black/white "Stealth" one and a vertical white/black one, I'm interested to see if these are better than the half/half last couple batches, and/or if these are actually Nylon/Rubber as they look completely different than the Premier wristband construction.

I guess I might have to, I'm hoping they'll have some at the Nike store as I'm loath to buy stuff of indeterminable quality and pay for shipping online

Well you could just get something else you really want/need to get free shipping then add in a pair or two of wristbands. So then you're only paying for the wristbands and the other item(s) that you really need/want.

NDC posted the plain White doublewide wristbands and one of the new striped singles, so maybe we'll see some new stuff soon

what are terrible? The white wristbands? I got a couple and they feel just like the premiers from last year, the Black/Persian Violet/Hot Lava/Light Retro/Midnight Navy series, which seems to be the consensus for the best wristbands ever.

Now I just hope they start treating the wristbands like headbands and make every color. I've been waiting for just a plain Black/White Premier wristband forever, or a Midnight Navy/White to match the Fed WTF, since we'll never get the PE Navy/Black which may be the GOAT of wristbands. Has anyone ever figured out why Fed wears his upside down?

I got a pair of the white vertical ones, they're pretty comfortable so far and pretty clean looking. They're only a fraction of the thickness of the Premier Wristbands and feel quite different despite being made of the same materials. They don't offer the same amount of compression that the thicker wristbands do, which is one of the things I like about the Premiers. Can't vouch for sweat-related issues until I play in them, so I'll report back if/when I get them full of sweat.
