Rating: Aqua Lung Hotshot
Reviewer: Jonathan C.
i am a business owner. that said, i use these fins in a variety of ways and conditions. from 1 million gallon swimming pools, to the lake i live on, to lobster diving in gloucester massachusetts. smart, compact, efficient and great on bare feet as well as socks. propulsion is adjustable (in a fairly narrow bandwidth) but the size and usefulness over ride any bad effects. i swam .5 miles on my lake in the beginning of july no problem. 2 tank 20 dive in gloucester no problem. great set of fins.

  • Elizabeth:

    Will the Ocean Quest EZ Spring Dive Fin straps work woth the Aqualung Hotshot fins (post configuration)?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Elizabeth, yes the Ocean Quest spring straps will work on these fins. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Maria:

    I am very short, just under 5 feet and I use the sling shot fins. I have tried many other fins and I feel these give me the best control... but they tire my legs out and I wonder if they are really too long for someone my size. So now I see these hotshot travel fins which are 4" shorter but Im worried my boots wont fit into them. I live in New England and waters cold-I use Henderson H2 7mm No Zip Boot SKU: HNDBH27 Would you be able to tell me if these boots will fit into the hotshot fins? What are the size differences (between a small & regular?) Would sizing up be a good idea? Any info would be great, thanks,

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    These fins will be smaller and easier to kick, but designed to be worn without boots. The Oceanic Vortex V-8 might be a better choice. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/014489/Oceanic-Vortex-V-8-Adjustable-Strap-Dive-Fins.html

  • MJM:

    I have these fins but they dig holes in the back of my ankles. What are the best socks to avoid abrasion but not cramp the foot pocket? Turns out Duct tape wraps are not a fashion statement.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello MJM, when wearing adjustable strap fins. You should wear some type of boot: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear/Boots.html. If you would like to place3 an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • dale:

    regarding the Hotshot fins: 1. can they really be used comfortably without a boot/sock? 2. where can I find a size chart?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Dale, yes you can use these without boots but I would suggest wearing boots with these fins. As for the sizing chart if you look in the drop down menu for the fins you will see the color and size of the fins.

  • Bob:

    I bought the Hot Shot fins and the recommended spring replacement straps, but cant figure out how to swap them out! It doesnt look like the original heal straps are designed to come off at all!

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Unfortunately these will not accept a spring strap. We will make the change on the website. Send an email to returns@scuba.com for a return label on the straps.

  • Brian:

    Are these good fins for Snorkeling? I am pretty tall at 6-3 and want something comfortable and of low effort.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Great snorkeling fins and easy to use.

  • s.simpson:

    I have lost one of the blue snaps (or keeper) for the fin strap on my Aqualung Hot Shot fin.Still will hold but on removing the fin the strap occasionally slips off. Can I get a replacement for the snap?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    hello, here is the sku for the replacement fin straps. 012400

This amazing fin has been engineered with the traveling diver in mind. It offers:

Unsurpassed comfort
Compactness for carry-on travel
Power for a fully-outfitted scuba diver

Comfort
The foot pocket is designed to be worn with bare feet!
The top and sides of the foot pocket are soft against bare skin
Neoprene socks or thin-soled boots may be used for thermal protection
Unique, self-adjusting Comfo-strap is buckle free. This particular type of elastomer guarantees comfort
Mid-foot Flex Joint
The blade attaches to the sides of the foot pocket rather than at the front of the foot pocket.
Prevents hyper-extension of the toes and ankles
Maximizes the transfer of power from the leg to the fin
Compact and Light Weight
Fits in carry-on luggage! Ideal with new Departure bag from Deep See.
Measures only 20.9 in. / 53 cm overall length
Size regular weighs only 3.28 lbs / 1.5 kg
Power
Due to the Mid-Foot Flex Joint, the entire length of blade flexes and provides forward thrust. With a traditional fin, the third of the blade in front of the foot pocket is considered dead space and provides no forward thrust. The result is that the HotShot provides the power of a fin that is 30% longer!
Geared with silicone slings (Power Bands). These pure silicone slings are loaded with energy during the power stroke, which they release prior to the upstroke
Twin-Speed Gear Shift
The silicone Power Bands form the HotShot gear system
The gear shift allows the diver to choose the best speed-to effort ratio
Divers can change gear settings while wearing the fins
The blade is made of a semi rigid customized technopolymer. The result is an excellent spring effect and flexibility to maximize thrust.
The rubberized ribs are made of two different elastomeric compounds to provide the greatest elasticity
Other features
Comes in three sizes: small, regular, large/x-large
Anti-slip rubber pads on the bottom of fin keep divers safe on boat decks
Grooves along inside bottom of foot pocket prevent foot from being vacuum-sealed in foot pocket making doffing easy
Power bands are protected on the bottom to prevent contact with the ground

Fin Care and Maintenance
Care Before and During the Dive

Avoid standing your fins on the tips of the blades for any extended period of time.
Avoid hot temperatures and hot surfaces as these can damage the fin.
Avoid placing the fins in a car trunk on hot days as the temperatures inside car trunks can exceed the temperature tolerances of the fin and the blades may distort.
Care After the Dive:

Rinse thoroughly with fresh water and towel dry before final storage.
Storage:

Store in a cool, dry and protected place out of direct sunlight.
Chemicals/Solvents:

Avoid any contact with alcohol, oil, gasoline, aerosols, or chemical solvents.
Do not expose any part to aerosol spray, as some aerosol propellants attack or degrade rubber and plastic materials.
Do not use any type of alcohol, solvent or petroleum based substances to clean or lubricate any part.
Do not store your equipment near any oil, gasoline, chemicals, or solvents.
