Rating: oceanic vortex v6 fins
Reviewer: scott sayer
These fins were purchased after a discussion with a scuba.com specialist. My problem for years was finding comfortable full foot fins for my wide foot. I can report that my problems were solved with the V6 fins. The size 11-12 actually fit my 10 wide foot perfectly, without the side toe pressure I had been living with previously. They also have better control and fatigue less than other fins, and stayed on my feet well. I rate them a good value for such a well fitting and performing set of fins.

Rating: Great fins for warm water
Reviewer: Joseph C.  -  View all my reviews
Purchased these fins for recent trip to St. John. Snorkeled everyday. They were light weight, comfortable and had all the power I needed to kick to the bottom and chase fish all day. Just a tad stiffer than the Aeris Velocity I purchased for my son. Both great fins.

Rating: Runs small!
Reviewer: Ronald J.
I usually wear a size 10 mens shoe so ordered the 9-10 sized fin, but they are so tight as to be impossible to get on! Since we are on an extended holiday, I couldnt send them back so had to borrow larger fins for the duration of our vacation. So disappointing! My wifes fins fit fine and she had worn them comfortably on all our excursions. Ron Johnson

Rating: New diver: Oceanic V6 full foot split fins review.
Reviewer: Chad W.
I bought these fins to replace the Aeris velocity full foot fins. I used the Aeris fins for one dive trip and also about 6 months doing a mile or more nonstop, 3 to 5 days a week keeping in shape at the community pool. The back of the heels split on me but they still work. I did get a lot of good use out of them. The fins worked nicely, producing good propulsion with less strain on the quadriceps. The Aeris velocity fins feel a bit light weight and flimsy compared to the Oceanic V6 split fins. The V6 have stiff rails down both sides of each. The stiffer fins are more work on the quadriceps, they are harder to kick but seem to give more propulsion per kick, so I believe fewer kicks gives the same distance in the same amount of time. They are pretty fast, probably faster than the Aeris fins in short sprints but Ill probably tire quicker. More testing to come. The rubber at the back of the heel is quite a bit thicker so Im hoping Ill get more use out of the V6s. So far I like them but will need to adjust these sturdier fins as they are harder to push. I tried the Oceanic full foot "Viper" (not a split fin) before hand and gave them away immediately and ordered the V6s. Too much effort to kick, very stiff and no angle. Harder on my ankles and quadriceps. So far I really like the Oceanic V6 fins. I swim at least a mile nonstop 3-5 times a week for endurance, to help me in the ocean current, lower oxygen use and keep in shape so Im ready for my next dive trip (Bonaire I hope)!

Rating: vortex v-6 dive fins reasonably priced,terrible service
Reviewer: antonina g.
I purchased these fins for my trip to Cozumel because of the lite wait.It is what i expected .Served the purpuse. Just like to make few comments about this website.I placed my order in December 2011 to have everything arrive for sure before my trip to Cozumel in February 2012.First email from website i received 10 days after order placement and it informed me about back order on one of my items.Promised shipping time was mid-january(My credit card was charged immediately after order placed in December).After i checked billed amount it was much more than advertised.After 4 calls to Scuba.com billed amount was not adjusted and now i had more items on backorder .Shipping date was changed to the end of January.After more then unpleasent conversation with customer service(they are just scuba instructors) i was able to cancelled backordered items and they shipped what they had in wearhouse.Because of lost time i was not able to reorder everything from different website. 3 more phone calls got me my money back on cancelled items and refund on overcharged items.will never shop here again.

Rating: Best Dive Fins Ive Tried Yet
Reviewer: Dov M.
Moved to Belize 4 months ago, and Ive gone through a number of fins, most of which dont fit me very well. I typically wear a 9-10, but in a European size 41-42, which are harder to find, and most tend to be either too short in front or too loose in the heel. The Oceanic Vortex fins both fit perfectly, and give great propulsion for snorkeling. Very happy with the purchase.

Rating: Lived up to their good ratings
Reviewer: Charles B.
I wanted a pair of easy to use fins primarily for snorkeling in South Florida. Warm water, clear reefs, and occasional underwater hunting. I have been a certified diver for over 40 years and have gone through a lot of the fin and equipment development. I just finished a week in the Keys with a chance to really test the Oceanics and now I am ordering a pair for my wife to replace her old Planas. The fit was comfortable, no feet cramps and plenty of speed with scissors and dolphin kick, particularly the later was especially easy to do with these. Sizing is very important and happily mine fit out of the box.

These surprised me by how easily they kicked for speed and yet were great for maneuverability. Not too big, not too small and really comfortable, make sure you go down at least a size since they tend to run big.

We ordered the full foot fins for my wife and they were just a bit to big, I got online with one of the great inside sales people at Scuba.com and with in a few seconds he had checked to insure that the next size smaller in stock and they were shipped that day. You can not beat that kind of service anywhere. The fins work great

Rating: Oceanic Vortex V-6 full foot fins
Reviewer: Louis Szabo
When I asked for a scuba.com recommendation for a very good snorkel fin I can carry in airline baggage, they recommended the Oceanic Vortex V-6 full fit fins. We used these fins while snorkelling in the Bahamas, and we were very happy with their thrust and comfort. They required little effort from a kick stroke to move along at a very good speed. We can also use these fins for diving. Excellent product and scuba.com recommendations.

Rating: Vortex V-6 Full Foot Fins
Reviewer: Bobbie Mallard
They save me a lot of energy, as I move along. the large split fins work so well. I really enjoy them and not having to wear a boot with them is so comfortable. Yet in the cold water I have a large set to use with the boot. I find it easier to use them rather than the strap, for comfort and ease of putiing them on and off/

Rating: Comfortability + High Mobility = Great Value!
Reviewer: Samuel P.  -  View all my reviews
I wear a size 12 shoe. I ordered the size 11-12 fins and they fit perfect. I used these fins for snorkeling off Maui and they provided excellent mobility even in strong currents with little-to-no muscle fatigue. If I can find a suitable sock I will try these fins for diving in warm waters. (An unexpected bonus - the angle of these fins made them easy to pack into my carry-on duffle bag!)

Rating: Nice Fins
Reviewer: Vincent V.  -  View all my reviews
I ordered these to replace my old US Diver fins and was looking for something with a little more thrust without using as much energy. I ordered a size 9-10. The fins do seem to work very well with just a little leg motion. About the only issue I found was while I wear about a 9.5 shoe and have a wide foot these seem to fit just a tad large but not a big deal.

Rating: Powerfull Fins
Reviewer: Bernard S.  -  View all my reviews
These fins are powerfull and effortless to use. I was able in salt water to overcome the boyancy and swim down 12 to 15 feet which I was never able to do with traditional fins. Also I snorkeled a little over a mile each day and never felt fatigued or tired

Reviewer: Sam Newkirk  -  View all my reviews
I have not had a chance to use the fins yet, but I am looking forward to doing so in April. I wear an 8.5 shoe, so I ordered the 9-10 size. I should have ordered the 7-8 size. I have socks to wear in them, so they should be OK.

Rating: First Time : Oceanic Votex V-6 Full Foot Fins
Reviewer: Martin C.
The fins performed as well as stated after reading other reviews on-line. Matter of fact, I ordered the wrong size and called back and SCUBA corrected the size with no problem and received them as delivered on time. I noticed that it definitely give me more quickness , speed in the water swimming with the barracudas, sting rays in choppy waters ( 3) and I never got cramped up like I have previously with othr long normal fins after being out snorkling,swimming for 1-2 hours straight. I was able to cover a ,ot of ground with fins.

Rating: Great fins!!!
Reviewer: Martin T.
I purchased a snorkel package which included these fins. I did a review of these fins on SCUBA.com and the review was just as they said. Great fins, I have done a lot of snorkeling and had always rented. These fins propel you with great force when you are trying to catch up to fish or stay in one place in the current.

Rating: Great flippers
Reviewer: Adam H.  -  View all my reviews
This is the first time I used these split fins. I used them for two weeks in hawaii recently and was impressed how well they worked. They really did make it easier to kick and my legs were less fatigued compared to the regular non-split fin. They fit a little wide on the foot, but I used a neoprene 1mm sock that helped, and also the sock made this and any fin more comfortable than just a bare foot against rubber. I would buy them again.
