    C60 Hollis wing failure

    I've had this wing for a number of years, is mounted to my twinset backplate.

    Took it out today for what seems the last dive of the season.

    Seemed fine when doing my buddy check.

    when back on dry land could hear some water in it so i tried to fill with air and turn the wing to the kidney valve to empty except it hissed rather than filled with air.

    when dismantling can see two small horizontal gashes on the inside bottom left hand corner about 2cm below the backplate , 1cm each about 3cm above one another. No damage to cordereau material any thought what might have done it?

    i've got pictures if it helps. The wing has done 70-80dives. looks mint.

    Do i need to get a hollis donut replacement or are they generic, air on the top back, dump kidney inside.

    Assuming a standard setup, I reckon it's the ends of the jubilee clips on the light can.

    However, I can see a D-ring that's maybe on that side, so perhaps not.
