Rating: good, not great and they run big
Reviewer: Karen Levine  -  View all my reviews
These fins run large. They supposedly fit women with feet sized 5 to 8.5, but my size 6.5 feet require that the straps be tightened all the way. I dont think a woman with smaller feet would be able to keep these on her feet. I bought the Ocean Quest spring dive straps, size small, to use with these fins, and they were too big. Given the problems I have had with the straps, it is hard for me to see the advantage of these fins.

Rating: a little wide
Reviewer: TANYA B.  -  View all my reviews
i tried two sizes of this fin and although i am sure it performs well, sadly the tow box of both was too wide in both sizes. (yes sports fans, with booties on). ALso i wasnt real sure about the strap which would be great to flip down when taking the fin off, but which TO ME, could rotate down while finning. I could be wrong, i never got to try this fin. Liked the length of the blade very much though.

My husband and I are beginners and purchased these fins for our dive certification class. Overall perfomance was good. Easy to get on and off. I had some problems with the locking mechanism but they were were easily rectified.

Rating: response fins
Reviewer: timothy hancock  -  View all my reviews
great fins for the price. i have had no trouble with fins , i like them very much. i am strong swimmer so it doesnt matter what i use. i do like the power they provide as opposed to split fins . the splits are good for moderate swimmers and small frame people. i am a big boy and i need power to push me through them water . these fins provided that. splits made an easier stroke but i felt less power and more strokes because of water being aloud threw

Rating: Love them
Reviewer: Gena L.
I lost a fin doing a very fast drift dive, and even with the slight price increase from the manufacture I got a second set. These fins are great as they act like a split fin, but you have more control.

Rating: Good Flippers!
Reviewer: Grahamm H.  -  View all my reviews
My first impression when I got these was they were to big to travel with. I did manage to get them in my suitcase without sacrificing anything. The ease of use was good. They took only seconds to put on and get comfortable. After a hour of snorkeling, I didnt have any fatigue in my legs at all (I dont exercise). I thought these were a decent flipper for the price. The only bad thing is they are big for travel.

Rating: fins
Reviewer: Laurie & Vic A.  -  View all my reviews
I love these fins. The buckles work great. They are easy to release to slide your foot out. They are very comfortable. We dove 4 days and I didnt have any problems at all. I would highly recommend these fins.

Rating: Low cost fins
Reviewer: Robert Johnson  -  View all my reviews
For the price they are ok, I wanted to try this style of fin and purchased mainly for the price. They worked, nothing broke, and I would reccomend them as a back-up, the quick release is a little sticky, the clips are hard to release with gloves on, but all in all worth the price.

Rating: Response Fins
Reviewer: Carol Johnson  -  View all my reviews
I have alway bought the super-expensive long-blade fins to get better propulsion with fewer kick cycles. These fins however, are a great length with enough rigidity to do a comparable job. They are comfortable and give you leadway through most current conditions. When conditions are less demanding, relaxed kick cycles generate a real comfortable glide. In my opinion, these are real versatile fins at a fabulous price! Carol Johnson, MAster Instructor

Good fit. Especially like the adjustable straps. However, you must use either neoprene booties or sox to prevent chafing.

Rating: Genesis Response Fins are a great Value

I recently returned from a trip to Cozumel. My new Genesis Response Fins were comfortable, light, and easy to put on and take off. They felt like an extension of my legs.
