i am looking for replacement fin straps for my Aqualung sling shot. can you recommend?
Hello Martin, here are the starps that I would suggest for you: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-113/012067/Ocean-Quest-Ez-Spring-Fin-Straps.html.
My wife has the Aqualung slingshots. I plan to order but the sizes have changed, (she has regular). I have a size 9 foot. Do you have these in stock, (black/silver) as we are going on a trip and need by 6/25 at the latest, (Sarasota, FL). Thank you, John
Im a male and wear a size 11-11.5 shoe...what would be the appropriate size for me in the Slingshot fin?
Each item on our site will list the sizing, if applicable, in the options dropdown box. With open heel fins, they take into account that you will be wearing a boot with them, so no adjustment in size is needed. You always purchase using your normal sneaker type shoe sizing. In this case you'd wear the XL size.
good day. please am a professional commercial diver and i work offshore with a diving company we dont dive with scuba but with surface demand but for a long time i have not had my own fin so i which to ask if this fin can be used comfortable to work offshore on a surface demand dive or is it for just scuba diving and for recreational diving, thanks.
Hello Collins, yes these fins would work for you doing commercial diving on surface supplied air or mix gas what every you are breathing. If you are looking for a fin that would work better for you take a look at either the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/014857/Hollis-F1-%C2%B4%C2%B4Bat-Fin%C2%B4%C2%B4-Adjustable-Spring-Strap-Fins.html or the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-20/012288/ScubaPro-Twin-Jet-Max-Adjustable-Spring-Strap-Split-Fins.html. Both of these I think would work a lot better for you with your diving.
How does these compare to the Mares X-Stream fin? After 3 years I am looking to need to replace my slingshot fins
Aqua Lung is excited to offer Slingshot - a revolutionary fin that will take the dive world by storm. The Slingshot will make diving more comfortable, efficient and fun. Its innovations include Power Bands, Gear Shift and Mid-foot Flex Joint that all add up to provide a wonderful diving experience.
Pure silicone Power Bands are loaded with energy on the power stroke. They release their energy prior to the upstroke to provide an added boost of power
Instead of wasting your energy, you accumulate it and reclaim it! Power bands lessen fatigue and add thrust
3-speed Gear Shift customizes your speed to effort ratio to fit the specific conditions of your dive
Three different settings are available
Easy to shift during the dive, even with gloves
Mid-foot Flex Joint
The blade is attached to the foot pocket using two Mid-foot Flex Joint
This takes the strain off of the toes and the top of the ankle. The result is a dramatic improvement in comfort
You can now use the entire foot to power the fin rather than just the front half of the foot
Provides the blade a significantly larger range of motion, often up to 5 times that of a conventional fin
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.
Store in a cool, dry and protected place out of direct sunlight.
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.
