I recently messaged Eric with 3 questions I had for him. The difference between his basic silicone and his full silicone tails and if one was lighter than the other. I also asked him about whether or not he would do custom colors to his basic silicone tails with an increase dollar amount. He only replied with the difference between his full silicone tail, basic silicone tail, and his partial tail (didn't even ask for this info). And his description was literally a copy and paste of the description on his website of each tail. Didn't even answer my other questions. So if any of you have tried the basic silicone and the full silicone tails, can you tell me the weight difference (if there is one?) Thank you!

Search the forum for mertailor. There are many MANY threads about his tails.

Sherielle- Ill continue to look, but a lot of the posts talk about the partial tail. I guess Im a little confused if the basic silicone is made out of all silicone or if it has neoprene or neoprin in it? I thought I saw him post on Facebook that he makes his tails out of neoprene?

The basic tail is lined with neoprin, not neoprene. His website acutally states spacer now, which means neoprin.
Here's two threads about the basic:

my basic silicone tail was about 15 pounds and he does custom paint jobs now. my partial silicone is about 30 pounds, but I don't have a full silicone.
