Rating: Worth the Money
Reviewer: JOHN WALTHALL,   
I had reservations about going from long, heavy fins to a lighter, shorter split fin, but I am amazed at the power from the split fin. Although I have not spent a week doing OW dives yet, testing in the pool leaves me very satisfied.

Rating: Super Dooper Vins
Reviewer: Richard Shook,  - View all my reviews
Just bought these fins for a vacation in Hawaii. We dove every day for 2 weeks and they were like power steering for my feet. Truly effortless and smooth on each stroke of my legs and feet. In some strong currents and this is where these fins really made a difference. Wow I like this product.

Rating: Excellent fin at an amazing price!
Reviewer: Michael H.,  - View all my reviews
When my wife lost one of these fins on a recent dive trip she was upset. Shortly after we were pleasantly surprised when we saw them being sold for a great price on I had bought a cheapo set of fins but the v-16s had already spoiled her so much that I had to buy her another set. As a DM I believe that these fins are one of the best available and a good value with all the features that come standard. I also have a pair in my aresenal of fins. Split fins work! Springs straps are awesome!

Rating: Overall a good pair of fins.
Reviewer: Yao Ying T.,
im not sure how they had tested the fins, but i get great air consumption while using these. the only drawback is that the spring buckles seemed loose while kicking it would not be my first choice to use with these fins as cornering and turning is a bit stiff.

Rating: Simply Amazing
Reviewer: Christopher G.,   
These fins are simply amazing. The fins were surprisingly on the heavy side outside of the water but once you start diving with them they feel almost weightless. These fins require the absolute least amount of effort to propel you either underwater or at the surface. The only downside to these fins are the spring straps, now it just may be my feet, but these straps are on the loose side with no way of adjusting them, i simply order the rubber replacement straps and now the fins are perfect
