How do super lites hold up over time?

I just picked up a couple of Bummis Super Lites on fsot and love them (I always thought these looked great but resisted getting any because of mixed reviews). I love flips too, but the elastic and aplix don't hold up too well in the long term. I'm thinking about getting more super lites and possibly getting rid of some of my flips, but I'm just wondering how durable they are. If you've had them for a while how do they look and function? Thanks!

I've had mine since they came out and it's still great! I use it a lot over fitteds.

Yes, I always put them in the dryer! They seem to do better when dried to keep the PUL sealed around the thread. The Aplix is just slightly curled, but after 1 1/2 years at least I'd expect that.

Oh good! My oldest flip is only about 9 months old and already seems on the verge of wearing out. Fortunately I bought them all on sale, but since the price just went up I don't really want to replace them at full price. And so far, I like the super lite just as much, if not more.
