Default WTB Force Fins

Looking for a set of Force Fins for float tubing. Would prefer the adjustables but I am open to the Xl or XXL in the non adjustable if the price was right. Thanks.

Scott, check out ebay. I've bought 2 pairs off ebay and got a good deal on both pairs. Here's one I found...

$44 for shipping!!!

That's to avoid Ebay fees since they don't apply to shipping.

What is it about Force fins that make them so special aka expensive?

The way they are designed makes them very ergonomically efficient. Normal swim fins cause you to "fight" the water on both forward and backward strokes. Force fins are designed such that after stroking forward with your feet you can easily pull your feet back. I am sure there is some physical laws involved but I ain't never had no physics training. I just know that I would never use anything but force fins in either my float tube or my pontoon.

I'll have to look into them. I just bought some cheapies from Cabela's.

Maybe I should carve a "V" into mine and test it out!
