I was just wondering if there is a recommended size to fit certain fin, boot combos?
I have regular v12 fins with size 9 classic boots and my lds has fitted me the medium straps.
They seem good once on but you need to stretch them quite a bit to get them on.
Thanks for the help,
Jason.

No worries Kraks,
I was just worried i had been fitted with the wrong size springs as it takes a bit to get them on.
Maybe because they are new they are a little stiff :)
Thanks anyway mate,
Jas.

A spring strap should not be so tight that it compresses your foot into the pocket, ie your toenails should not feel abused at the end of a dive. If they do your spring strap is too small.

If you figure this out let me know. I just bought some v16's and use a size 9 boot as well and have been looking into the straps.

Well after doing a few dives with the medium straps they definatly dont seem too tight or loose so id say they are the right ones.
Not too sure about the V16s....maybe if you send them to me i can try them with my straps for you.:smiley2:

Yeah as a matter of fact I used a pair of v12s before I bought the 16's. The seem more or less the same although the 16's have a little smaller profile and seem to be a little more refined.
