The Rion line is OK for mild to severe losses for some water
aerobics...lap swimming etc...Although I tried a pair and they were more
trouble than
they were worth...In addition if you are now wearing E38's you just
won't get enough
power from the Rion's...If your contemplating new aids, get a new pair
and use your old
aid for sports activities...Get a good dri aid kit and use Sure seal's
to help keep out the
sweat...It may be your sweat more than just the moisture that is the
problem...I sweat a lot and never have the moisture problems your
dealing with and I believe the high salt content is the real
problem...To remedy that I guess you should drink more water to help
dilute your sweat...One last thought...If you find lots of sweat in your
hair see if the hair ends right at the aid causing the sweat to drip
right on the aid..I'm working now with a painter (who I might add rusted
out a Rion in 2 weeks )who has not been successful with any aid due to
sweat...He is growing his hair long enough to go past his aids to
hopefully allow sweat to roll past his aids...All this may sound strange
but sometimes we just have to be creative...Good luck...GG
