    Anyone know where to get a replacement strap? flipfins.com is MIA, you can't order anything from their website and their contact numbers have been disconnected.

    I tried scuba.com, they told me to buy a certain strap and it would be compatible...well it wasn't.

    Was thinking about trying Scadden...

    Talked to Dave at NFO. Sounds like flip fins is bankrupt. I guess they had a bunch of government contracts (military I'm assuming) and were slow on getting paid...imagine that.

    If you want these, better get em quick...

    I was looking into getting a pair in June. Big retailers were out of stock for Navigators and the flip fins company Amazon outlet indicated they were out. Their scuba line was also extremely low on stock. It didn't inspire confidence for their longevity.

    I admit I've only ever used flip fins, and have to say that I can't imagine owning anything else. I'd gladly get another pair if I could find them.

    I bought a pair last year, did not like them at all, sent them back. Found that my cheap $35 fins are easier to kick and definitely easier to turn with. The only thing the Navigators were good for was walking in and I never walk a lot in fins anyway. I can see why they went out of business. Just my .02, if you are a proud owner of a pair don't get offended, just wasn't for me..

    I have a pair, really like them. My back is getting really bad so I don't really like bending over to adjust the strap, bought a pair of replacement straps that have the spring load in them, they work awesome, dont have to cinch them down or loosen them up, the spring does all the work. and the old strap is a back up in case the spring breaks (not likely). The brand is EZ Spring Fin Strap, got them from Leisure Pro
