Best Float Tube Fins
 
What do you guys think are the best float tube fin's? I'm using the basic Bucks Bag fins and they don't seem to move you very fast. My wife had me get her some regular scuba fins and she was getting around much better even in the wind. She weighs a lot less, LOL but still she was cruising all over with those fins.

I wear scuba fins and given the wind that can come up on our lakes, I would not consider anything less.

Force Fins, a scuba fin developed for military purposes... arguably the best, but unfortunately now rare and expensive.

Yikes, just saw a $225 price online...could that be correct? Avoid the adjustable ones with cuffs if you can - they are a pain to get sized correctly.

I used to sell them, the float-tube model for $95/pair, then maybe $105, but that was a long time ago, evidently.

Try to find a used pair: XXL size for average man w/ float tube booties...XL with just a sock, also for women with foot coverage over waders. Good luck

Good fins aren't cheap. Make sure you get ankle lanyards so they don't end up at the bottom of a lake.

I have a pair of dive fins I would sell. Hurricane model, mfg by OceanWays. About 15 years old but used maybe only 30 days. Gave up on float tubes 10 years ago. PM me.

Thanks for the tips. 225 def a steep price for force fins.

I've always used Force Fins. They are the best.

I'm going to order some Force Fins this week. Everything I've read and people I have talked to say they are the best. Thanks for your help!

Pay attention to the sizing aztightlines discusses above. I use these booties with mine

It is crazy how expensive things have gotten over the years. I bought my force fins for $100! Thatís was 20+ years ago but $220 is crazy ridiculous.
