I'm a Fish!
I dive Cressi Frogfin Plus fins and in June I purchased Cresses bungee strap which was a nice strap but after a month and a half of diving the bungee broke. I noticed there were a lot of universal metal spring straps out there and was curious of any of them were really good. If I can’t find a metal strap that works with the Cressi I will probably change my fins out. I would the bungee strap lasted longer than about 15 dives so I am looking for something that can stand up to a few more dives.
 
Mine last about 500 dives before they begin fraying. I've never had one break.

This is the standard strap there are holes on the sides of the fins that the quick releases lock into and then the quick release has the strap which is a giant pain. I am not sure what I could secure a bungee cord to

Have someone 3d print you the bracket to put on the attachment post...
 
Or find someone who has the brackets for the XS straps they didn't use....
 
Or pop off the plastic buckle on the fins and use the metal hooks on the bungee straps. Bend the hooks to hold them onto the fins.

You could also order Tusa straps

You could even use thinner bungees and try this

This could work well just need to figure out the right knot to tie in the bungee.
