Default 1/3 Scale Cub struts

I recently purchased a 1/3 scale Cub from a friend and want to put it on floats, but I can't seem to find any struts other than Sea Commander's. It looks like around $100 just for their struts. OUCH! Any other ideas ?

He was a good bit cheaper that Sea Commander, but I had found him after I had already ordered mine from sea commander....

Thanks for the info. I didn't know Keleo had them. Jim, I used K&S on my Beaver, but they don't make it big enough for the 1/3 scale. Now I wish I had a Bridgeport mill in my garage to make some fittings! Thanks again,,,,,Seaplane
