I recently purchased a Triception set from Mark Mason, and love the no rubber band feature of the Gravity Flipper. When practicing again with my Schoolcraft flipper tonight, the rubber band broke. I will be able to repair it, but wondered if anyone has tried using the NGF thread that came with the Triception set with a different make Gravity Flipper? I would rather not do this repair twice if someone else has already tried it unsuccessfully. Thank you in advance for your replies.
I apologize if this topic has already been addressed, but I was unable to find it in a search.

I haven't tried that jonny, but this is the kind of thing that made me stop using flippers in performances altogether. It's not always the band either. I just had the insert on a brand new gravity flipper come loose and pop out the first time I opened it today! I stick with shells and C/S gaffs now.

I have tried it and I don't recommend it. The design of the NGF allows the knot to be "secured". If you have the Triception set, you know what I mean. With a Schoolcraft or Lassen, the knot doesn't easily fit in the same place and it's hard as h*#l to tie.

Regards,

Alan

Thank you, Alan, I know what you mean, and that sounds like excellent advice from someone who tried it. I'll stick with the rubber bands, then.

Thanks Alan. Now at least I know not to try.

Thanks again!
