Rating: Great fin
Reviewer: Ralph Rodriguez
i have been diving for many years and just recently made the switch from paddel fin to split fin. Not only did my endurance increase, but my yearly dive/smim test, has significantly improved. At the end of 800 meters, I have shaved two minutes from my time and not nearly as fatigued as I was with paddle fins. I HIGHLY recommend these. I also tried the Atomic Smoke before purchasing these. I definitely feel I made the right purchase.

My first pair love the function they work very well, do not like the weight. Feel I need a lighter pair for travel!

Reviewer: Michael C.  -  View all my reviews
These might be a little overkill for snorkeling, but I can get to places a lot quicker than everyone else and use a lot less engergy doing it. Ill get waterlogged before I get tired, and Ive never had a cramp. Our family has three pair of these and everyone loves them.

Reviewer: Lisa Hughes
I love these fins. You forget they are on in the water, not heavy at all. I used them on reefs and wrecks. My favorite so far.

Rating: New Technology at its Finnest.
Reviewer: TERRANCE NICHOLSON  -  View all my reviews
These fins work excellent on long dives they operate on vortex propolsion. Takes less strength to get the same speed, which in return increases your dive time, saving precious gasses. Very durable rugged design. Probabley have them for many years to come.

I love my new fins. I am a woman diver who needed sturdy booties for shore diving in Bonaire, so it was hard to find fins to accomodate the sturdy boots. They work perfect, with a big foot pocket. In the water they propel me right through with very little effort. renee97038@hotmail.com

Best fins I have ever used. They are heavy out of the water but once in the water you wouldnt know you have them on. They are comfortable and as a person who used to always get cramps from fins I can guarantee that these ones are fantastic.They also have a great action giving you a great deal of propultion with little effort.

Rating: The easiest fin EVER
Reviewer: James R.
I used to wear the Power fins before this and I tell you, it is like day and night. These fins feel as though they arnt even on your feet! You forget about them so easily. They are a bit heavy out fo the water but really, what are you wanting to do with fins out of the water anyway? If its a travel issue, they are going to charge you for your bag anyway. The power that these fins produce is incredible. After you swim with them the first time youll wonder what you were doing before.

Dove in Bonaire with the new fins and they are fantastic. good power and comfortable to wear/also bought the spring straps. Easy on and off they were a little heavier than the fins I had but I got use to them quickly and they swim very nice.I give them 5 stars.

Reviewer: Stephen H.  -  View all my reviews
Great product. The only downside is I didnt realise how heavy these fins are out of the water. Certainly not a carry on item on the aeroplane, and with the international limits decreasing on checked luggage its definately a downside (but the only one I have found).

Glad to have these on my feet instead of my 20 year-old spectra fins. Theyve been great for boosting efficiency under there, I find I dont work quite as hard, and my calves and feet dont cramp anymore.
