    Closer tolerances for the bungee in the plastic piece, I just had to work the screws in against more resistance, no big deal just a little more fuss.

    "By the way Jets remain one of the best overall fin ever made, as I approach my 50th year as a diver I’m back to jet fins like I started with."

    Nice DIY.

    I tried to like jets on three different occasions, no love was found. To me, uncomfortable and the large size has a tiny blade. Maybe if I had bigger feet things would have been different.

    But I don't see zip ties in the yellow one. How are they attached? Can you show/explain?[/QUOTE]

    That was an older photo. Merry preferred using zip ties. I tried them the next time I changed bungees and found them to be secure and easier to manage. I've never had one come loose.
