The eyes are made of a stronger polymer to withstand increased tensile loads. The body itself has a uniform wall thickness and a reliable valve.
There are two color options:

Ship captains buy fenders to place them as a shock-absorbing buffer between the boat's hull and other surfaces. During mooring, a strong wave or inertia of the course can lead to a collision with the walls of the pier or another yacht, and various types of protective dampers are used as insurance. There are also risks of friction after mooring, and the fenders act as an insulating gasket while docked at the berth.
In this situation, the further away from other surfaces the boat is, the better, which is why many people prefer large-diameter ball-shaped fenders. In unknown mooring conditions or in turbulent bays, most prefer to play it safe so as not to pay for repairs later. Moreover, when deflated, they take up little space, are stored in a locker and can be filled with a conventional boat pump.
Stocks of fenders on board vary, but the classic recommendation is to have at least one fender for every 2.5-3 meters of the yacht and at least three on each side. The height is often chosen so that the round fender covers a little more than half of the freeboard.
