Surfers ear sucks

Had the operation about 2 years ago.
Bone is already growing back.
Looking into custom ear plugs and I found this new invention.
Mix the putty---push into your ear---they harden to a customized rubber shape in 10 minutes.

this is the "hunters" version. and they say it is ..."reusable for months" what happens when its in water? they also have a swimmer/surfer version for $140. id def consider the 10 buck version if it holds up in water.

I had the op 3 years ago I think...
I just use gobs of tack and stik...
The stuff you use to hold up posters...
Or you can get Blu Stik if your into that...
When you get old like me...
Hair grows out of your ears...
Which are excellent natural anchors...
Just warm it up, wad it up, shape it, jam it in there...
Keep wedging it in until its stuck...
Any questions?
What?
I can't hear your...
There's a bunch of goo in my ears.
