Are you still using fin straps or have you moved to springs?

I changed over to springs on my fins a couple of years ago. I really like them and so far no rust.

I still use the fin straps I am curious to see how the springs hold up over time, but I think like anything with proper care I am guessing they will last just as long.

Springs, the only way to go. I've been using them for a couple of years now with no problems. When they wear out I will buy more.

Not up on springs---what's the benefit, comfort etc.? Presume they last longer than rubber strap, don't break/wear as easily?

Easy to put on. Don't have to adjust straps. Springs hold the fins on. Try them, you'll love them

Personally I don't really see the benefit in springs. I guess it could depend on the actual fin style and strap. I have no problem with the straps so far.
