And the reviews are in:
"The Bio-fin Pro Yellow is a bonafide speedster, and real neck snapper off the mark."
"One out of two fins rated Excellent in the power vs. stress ergo category (the other was the Apollo Bio Pro XT), this is also the only fin test divers rated Excellent for acceleration" -Scuba Lab
"powerful, yet comfortable-it virtually form-fits to foot... Zero resistance at high speeds" -Scuba Lab
" It's 100% natural rubber construction provides a butter-soft foot pocket that feels molded to your foot. It's the only fin in this year's competition to earn an excellent rating for comfort. But while it may fit like a favorite slipper, it doesn't behave like one. The Bio-Fin Pro Yellow/C-Series outraced all comers on the speed test, muscled top score out of the thrust test and easily dusted the competition on both the slalom and efficiency courses. When test divers took it out for some real-world diving, it dominated there too. Generating snorkel bending acceleration, stability at high speeds and a nimbleness that had everybody talking, this pliable fin racked up the highest total ergo score. As the only open-heel fin rated excellent for power, for acceleration, for its efficiency with alternate kicks, as well as for comfort, it's easy to see why the Bio-Fin Pro Yellow/C-Series is this year's top overall open heel fin.

My feet are 13EEE and the fins I own are Oceanic Viper XL. I have a difficult time getting these fins off my feet and that is a problem on ocean boat dives ( just came from Cozumel last night). I need a fin that doesnt stick so well to my feet. Any recommendations?
How big is the difference between the regular bio fin and the XT bio fin? Also, which size would you recommend for boot size 11.5US?
