I just bought a pair of Tusa X-Pert Zoom Z3 fins, size Medium, and they came with a pair of medium Tusa Spring Straps. I have a size 9 foot, and the fins seem to fit fine with my booties. However, the Spring Straps are way loose, and there doesn't appear to be any way to adjust them. Any suggestions? Should I exchange the Spring Straps for the smaller size? Thanks in advance for your response.
KEITH S I would get a small. I love my spring straps! Good Luck with yours!
alnbobby a Thanks all for the responses. The Tusa Spring Straps do have a smaller size, and since they came as an extra "accessory" with my new fins, I'll plan to return my medium straps for the smaller straps, which should fit way better. Thanks again all.
RAY J great strap just go to the smaller size. There is no way to adjusted them. Also the salt water will discolor the straps.
JACKIE C not sure if there are sizes in the strap..... If not your fin may be to small. I wear a 7 - 7.5 shoe and I have the small fin and it fits great with the bootie and the straps. Was not much help, sorry..
LARRY B And to think I thought I was the only one with the exact same problem. I also bought the Spring Straps and they were too large.
I love the concept, but ended up ripping up an old tee shirt and stuffing cloth into the toe of the fin so the Spring Strap would fit better (pretty high tech, huh?)
The timing of your question is interesting as for this dive season I gave up and put the original straps back on.
I could never find a way to adjust them and compounded the mistake by keeping them too long to exchange them.
In your case, I would exchange them asap for a smaller size.
Best of luck, enjoy the Zoom fins (those are great) and you'll like the Spring Straps as well once you get the correct size.
SAMANTHA S I had the same problem and exchanged them for the XS-Scuba model instead they seem sturdier than the Tusa and fit better, I hope this helps
RALPH B I have size 11 foot and the medium springs that I purched work fine for me. There is no adjustment or way to shorten the springs. I agree with your poropoal. replace and try with small size spring straps.
