I recently purchased the Mares bungee straps, the size ordered was regular as it indicated mens 9-11. Im a US size 10 so the regular seem the correct option. Having got the straps and fixed them I find them very tight to the extent that by toes start to hurt after 20-25 mins into the dive.
My shoe size is 11, but I got XL superchannels since they were a little more comfortable in my 6 mm boots than the Reg. I wanted to get a pair of these straps. Which do you think is better strap size, the XL or the Reg? Thanks.
I recently purchased a pair of open heel Sherwood Fusion fins, size small/med, that came with spring straps. The fins fit perfect but the spring straps do not tighten enough across my heel. Are the bungee straps adaptable to the Sherwood fins? Im looking for an alternative w/o going back to the standard adjustable straps. Thanks.
Hello Bill, no these are not designed to fit on the posts of the Sherwood fins. If you are looking for a different spring strap that will fit your fins take a look at the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-113/012067/Ocean-Quest-Ez-Spring-Fin-Straps.html.
I recently purchased Mares Avanti XS fins for my girlfriend. Even with her booties - the buckle straps arent tight enough for proper fit (about 1/2 inch of space behind her heel with the straps adjusted as small as possible). Will switching to the XS bungee strap solve this problem?
are the connectors proprietary? id like to retrofit my fins not from this company with spring straps. but your photos dont really illustrate what kind of lugs the straps require. for that matter, i dont know how many lugs there are is it too much to hope that manufacturers use a standard design?

With the new Mares bungee strap donning and doffing a fin is a breeze, and the comfort during the dive is guaranteed by the new ergonomic heel cover.
