We do underwater surveys of habitats, and need to lie on the bottom for minutes at a time. Being able to cancel positive buoyancy in our legs makes it easier to get the job done. These weights do just that, and they are reasonably comfortable.
Ive only used these shears on one dive, used to cut cable ties holding scientific instrumentation to a mooring weight. Definitely made short work of cutting the zip ties. The area we were diving also has a lot of fishing, mostly trolling with hi-tech braid lines. The security of having shears that can handle braid makes me more confident than diving with a knife.
I needed to replace my previous Cressi fins (long story, involving high currents and loose strap). The Frogs are just as good as my previous fins. Ive only done 2 dives with them thus far, again in high current, and they have performed really well. Look forward to diving with them 2 days this coming week.
