Reflex release?

I was on their website looking at stuff to fulfill my addiction... And I ran across what looks like a silvretta 500 release but is actually labeled as a "reflex 750 waterski" release. Wonder if there is a difference? Anyone heard anything on it?

    Silvretta discontinued making the 500. It appears that Reflex has bought the tooling and is making it themselves now. Same release, but a couple of nice changes to make it easier to read the spring torque settings.

    Reflex bought the tooling from Silvretta for the 500 and call it the 750 now.

    At least they won't keep changing now. I bought three complete setups the last year of the 400 two for my son and one for my trick. Now he needs a new boot and the old boots aren't around. I know you can drill the cleat off on the back and fix but it is a pain. Replacing the releases and buying a new boot for him is a $450 expense which I am trying to avoid.

    I know the new releases are stronger but I keep an eye on things and I have some backup releases around.

    Can a person take apart the 400/404 release and tig weld up the weak spot spots on the cross bar that breaks

    What size boot does he have? I have 2 size 9 left foot forward that I no longer need as I upgraded to the new version.

    @Mark Petrie he needs the size 10 boot in a left. We have one I decided to go back to the Strada I have instead of spending the money right now. I wasn't totally convinced the Reflex was better for my skiing anyway.
