Reviewer: Scott Michael on 12/27/2008

Best Fins Ive ever used. - ill preface this by saying that the split fin technology used in these fins is licensed by natures wing to apollo, scubapro, atomic, tusa, oceanic, dacor, sherwood, beuchat and genesis. any of these manufacturers that claims to have a "secret" design that the other dont, is referring only to details such as materials, fins strap design, batten and rib design. the basic principles and operation of these fins is identical for all of them. potentially each of these fins will work about the same for you. the key is to determine which manufacturers products fits your foot and swimming style the best. my reasons for picking apollo fins was simple: - they are 100% rubber and as such...View Full Review

Reviewer: Deborah Coltun on 12/28/2013

Apollo Bio Pro Adjustable Strap fins - OMG, started diving late (50) and always had some trouble with leg cramping. Finally decided to look into Bio Pro after seeing them on a dive master on liveaboard. Bought a lovely PINK pair on sale, but at the price wouldnt go for the steel straps until Id given the seemingly expensive fin a trial. Just got back from a week in the Bahamas...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these seemingly expensive, heavy (on land, in the delivered box from UPS) fins. Great power with little effort, no weight in the water, super control and, most importantly, NO CRAMPS all week, not once, even loosening the adjustable straps to remove prior to climbing back aboard. Cant wait to get the spring strap, at any cost. FYI,...View Full Review

Reviewer: Heidi Fickinger on 4/6/2014

Great Fins! - Recently replaced fins I had had for years that had become extensions of my feet and have struggled to find a fin that I liked and gave me both the ability to move quickly and be able to finesse in confined areas and avoid kicking corals or other objects. Silly marketing name (Smoke on the Water), but these Atomic fins are perfect. It is effortless to use them, no foot or calf strain. Lots of power to swim against currents and great on reefs where I need to just minutely move to look at a tiny fish. LOVE them and I am a hard sell. The other benefit is that they are not as heavy as my Biofins, which is a plus in todays reduction of baggage weight allowances for air travel. I HIGHLY...View Full Review

Aeris Mako Adjustable Strap Fins Reviews

Reviewer: Oscar Zuniga on 7/27/2014

excellent product, great value - I have been diving with my Aeris Mako fins for several years and have been very happy with the fit and performance of them, so when my wife needed new fins she got a pair of them as well. Excellent product, very durable, and it would be difficult to find a better value in a dive fin. You can buy less expensive fins, but they wont hold up to shore dives and repeated donning/doffing like the Aeris fins do. We typically make 20-25 dives in a week of diving, both shore and boat dives, so our fins are on and off constantly. So far, no broken straps and no lost fins. The fins have plenty of power and all-day wear comfort with classic scuba fin styling but without gimmicks or gadgets.

Reviewer: Steven P. on 2/26/2014

Wow is all thatI can say - Wow. I have been using a pair of fins that are as stiff as a 2x4. When I bought them 20+ years ago, that was okay, but now, even though I am in really good shape, I find them just too stiff (58 years old 180 # male). I have been reading the reviews on these fins for years (all great) and had a strong recommendation from one of my friends who has a pair. Finally decided to take the plunge and am I glad I did. Just got back from a diving vacation in the BVI. These fins are incredible. Comfortable as slippers with unbelievable power. My diving partner commented on this. Also, my air consumption went down as I was doing much less effort to move than before. FYI, I used a size 9 Ocean...View Full Review

Reviewer: Jeremiah H. on 1/25/2010

excellent fins if you try em, youre gonna buy em! - ive been a die-hard u.s. divers rocket fin diver since 1975. i didnt the claims of this "technological innovation" by apollo. but, i had the opportunity to try them out a couple of years ago, and i was very impressed with them. probably the hardest thing to get over, when you first use these fins, is how effortless they seem. theres so much less effort involved in the kick stroke, that you feel like you must not be doing any good, with respect to motion. but, when you see how fast youre going, youre shocked. i went out and bought a pair immediately (this purchase was a gift for a friend ive had mine for several years). i was getting ready for a dive on a dive boat, not long ago,...View Full Review

Hollis F1 ´´Bat Fin´´ Adjustable Spring Strap Fins Reviews    F1 ´´Bat Fin´´ Adjustable Spring Strap Fins

Reviewer: Gary Sanders on 9/10/2012

Outstanding power and control, great spring strap - Though I dive with multiple tanks and in a dry suit in California waters, I have been using Scubapro Twin Jet split fins for years as they are comfortable and gave fine control. But swimming upstream in a current seemed to need more power. I tried recent Atomic fins but found them to be too stiff and the spring strap buckles opened twice in kelp forests when kelp wrapped around the fasteners. This happened on two different pairs. When I saw these F1 bat fins, I tried them as they are more like traditional broader paddle fins. Result: While stiffer, they are easy to get used to and do indeed provide more power and quite good control for finning in reverse or rotating or station keeping or...View Full Review

Oceanic Vortex V-16 U.S.A. ´´Limited Edition´´ Fins with Spring Straps Reviews    Vortex V-16 U.S.A. ´´Limited Edition´´ Fins with Spring Straps

Reviewer: JOHN S. on 5/7/2014

My take on the Vortex V-16 - I just completed 10 dives in the Dominican with my new fins. First time I have ever used a split fin and it took me about 2-3 dives to settle into the different feel. The fins provide plenty of power when I needed it in current but were delicate enough allow for the fine adjustments I need to make when setting up for taking photos. I also found that I felt less leg and knee strain vs a solid fin. The only advice that I would offer is that the foot pocket runs large. I have a size 13 foot and with my XXL Scubapro Delta 3mm low rise boots the fit was a little loose.

Reviewer: Alice L. on 3/9/2012

Change is hard - I had talked to someone on a trip in November who loved the fins and described their many positive features so I decided to purchase a pair. My first hope was they would be easier to pack than my current huge pair of split fins, slightly easier but just as long (x large size). I spent a week on a live aboard using them for the first time and had I not been stuck with them I probably would have dumped them the second dive. I was used to heavy split fins with negative bouyancy and the Sea Wings are positively bouyant. After 400 dives with the other product this was a learning curve. By the end of the week I loved that feature as it allowed me to hover for pictures without worrying about what...View Full Review

Reviewer: Karl E. on 4/28/2014

Twin Jet Max Fins - The name says it all, which suggests Power & Speed but not necessarily the later. Its more about comfort and the ease of your movement to propell yourself forward. I have used another brand of split fins for years and until an irreplaceable lug retainer for the fin strap broke recently, believed those babies were the best fins ever since sliced bread. How wrong was I and how great these Twin Jet Max Fins are to wear in the water. Add the adjustable spring loaded straps and your diving life is made even easier still Well worth the price, just add them to your gear, you wont be sorry.

Aqua Lung Slingshot Adjustable Strap Fins Reviews

Aqua Lung Slingshot Adjustable Strap Fins Reviews    Slingshot Adjustable Strap Fins

Reviewer: Rodney Wallace on 10/17/2012

Sling Shot Fins - Thanks to Scuba.com’s recommendation I purchased the Aqua Lung Sling Shot Fins to replace my aging Force fins. I went to the Force fins many years ago to avoid foot and leg cramps. The Force fins work on somewhat the same principal as the Sling Shot fins. The Force fin blade expands and increases resistance on the power stroke and gives the energy back on the return stroke. When I first used the Sling Shot fins with a setting on 1 I was very disappointed. I had no power and the fins were squirrely on my feet. But on the 2 setting the fins came alive. They felt like the Force fins only with a lot more power. On setting 3 they are even more powerful but with more strain on my legs. It’ll take...View Full Review

Reviewer: Jeanine D. on 4/24/2014

Awesome Fins! - I loved these fins because they were a little longer than other fins I have used in the past. These fins gave me more power with less effort. I highly recommend them. I liked the adjustable strap to fit to my feet as well. I actually wore my water shoes (by accident) with them and they ended up being comfortable and I didnt get any blisters so I will be using them in the future. I highly recommend them.

TUSA Solla Adjustable Strap Fins Review - $99.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - 30 dives in fins TUSA with september - october. Good fins, but "Anatomic Fin Strap" do not good. If when diver swimming frog style, anatomic strap bends begin to rub blisters on the outside of the heel. After replacing the anatomic strap on a standart TUSA or springs gets good fins.

Reviewer: Sam J. on 11/12/2013

Nice fin but maybe not for me - Let me start by saying Im new to diving and going to through trial and error despite suggestions from others. For me these fins are slightly small in the foot opening but that is with 5mm booties. In addition to that the flex they have is huge. Very easy to kick with but almost too much flex for what I desire. If your legs are not strong these would be ideal, if you kick harder it feels as if you go nowhere fast.

Great service! - I recently made a purchase for new fins, which I love. But Id like to comment on the service from scuba.com. I called in a few times to ask questions while I was making my desicion and found everyone I spoke to to be very helpful. Most importantly not pushy sales people! Love the service!

Aqua Lung Hotshot - 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.

Great first set of fins. - Ive never owned fins before. I am 28, male, 62 180 lbs. I bought a set of these fins to have my snorkeling gear for scuba diving. I now have so much fun snorkeling I havent even bothered to get certified in scuba. The difference fins make are enormous. With little effort I propel myself forward so fast my snorkel starts shaking back and for against my hood and I feel like wind is rushing over my head. If you want to see more underwater, get fins. I cant compare these to other fins but Ill say that Ive had no issues using them so far. They go on easy and are comfortable. They are very fast but also allow for slight movements. They are slightly negatively buoyant so if you move very slowly...View Full Review
