    Default Flipper question

    Im wanting to buy a set of flippers used or new but they aint actually called that... I dont know what they are called... they go on ya feet but steadin of the flipper part being flexable and extending from the toe area, theese have a flipper on the side which is hinged on the outer ankle part... The flipper closes on the kick stroke and opens on the bending knee stroke allowing ya to have foward motion steadin of backward motion... Do any of ya know what theese type flippers are called or where i could git some ?

    I am thinking you are talking about these:

    Should be able to find a used pair for dirt cheap, as just about everyone that has bout them thinks they are a piece of crap. LOL You move very slow with these. The only plus I have heard is they make it possible to move forward, but again, at a crawl.

    Thats the ones i was askin bout but bass pro aint gotem... The reason im lookin fer a pair is not for getting to a distant fishin spot but to move the pontoon around when im anchored off or tust to move about 50 ft from where i was without having to desturb fish fith ores splashing...

    Then regular fins would be better. Specially from a pontoon as you are sitting higher. Not sure how much of the Paddle would be in the water. You can do a lot with a pair of regular fins.

    I think this may be what you are looking for, unfortunately I found these on ebay without any info on the manufacturer.

    Outdoor Pride in Oklahoma has a product that does about the same thing differently. It attaches at knee and ankle. there is a cloth that goes over front of leg that expands as leg goes backward and collapses as leg goes forward. I haven't tried it but it costs 10 dollars so....
