Skirt for Jackson Super Hero?

I just got a Jackson Super Hero, and took it out for the first time saturday. I have an IR skirt that I got from a friend, I believe the cockpit size of the skirt is large. Anyways, the hardest part of the day was putting the damn skirt on. I'm having trouble finding some info online about the size of the Super Hero cockpit and the corresponding skirt size. Anyone else out there paddle a Super Hero and would be willing to impart upon me some sage wisdom about what size/type of skirt they use and how they like it? thanks

I have a large snap dragon that took a while to stretch out to fit my villain (same size cockpit). Rock what ya got and it will stretch out after a bit.

The shop where I bought mine says it is actually a XXL, but I use an XL Snapdragon, that was pretty tough to get on at first, but not a problem now.

I have an EZ-On from Mountain Surf that was originally purchased as an Extra-Wide Keyhole meant for a Super EZ but it worked on my Super Hero and now is on my Zen too.

Seems like the Mtn surf non-bungee yellow pull-cord skirts fit on just about everything...

thanks for all the responses. im hoping my IR skirt will get a bit easier with time, im pretty broke so im not too keen on buying a new skirt but it sounds like if i have to go there, the XL snapdragon or a custom skirt are the options.

I have a 2XC bungie skirt from IR that fits the SuperHero, a SuperFun, a Dymanic Duo, etc. I've had good luck stretching out tight skirts by leaving them on the boat (in the garage) between runs for a couple weeks or more. That seems to work out well for rubber rand skirts - not sure if it works as well for Bungie skirts.
