They ar e very slippery in both the water and the air (my 182 on amphibs cruises at 140mph at 24 squared). If you are going to be doing any ocean landings you will want fiberglass floats because even on salt they will last a life time. They also retain their value for almost ever because they just don't age. They used to weigh a big more than Aluminum but Aerocet has developed new techniques to bring the weight down to that of Aluminum and in most cases less than Aluminum. The Aerocet 3400s will also fit a varity of aircraft 180, 182, 185 and 206. So you can swap them around if need be.
I did a lot of research before buying my set and in the end I put my money on Aerocets. As many know I take my plane into some pretty rough and tough areas and these Aerocet floats haven't failed me yet.
