View Full Version : footstraps on phantom 320

The Drake straps constantly shrink back down even after setting them to a large size. I like them looser since I sail with rubber boots on.

Do I need to reeplace them or will they stretch out fairly quickly and stay open?

try DAKINE Primo. SB shrinks if you have bigger shoe size or you use boots.

Hi Tony

I wear boots too - for a 2008 iSonic I keep tennis balls under the straps: first to "stretch" them; then to keep their shape when stacked in the van. After a while these straps stopped shrinking back down, and are comfortable.

Only "downside" is a slight compression of the deckpad where the ball presses.
