ScubaPro Twin Jet Max Adjustable Spring Strap Split Fins
Rating: Jet fin max versus v-12 10/09/2012
After much debate and research, I decided on the scuba pro jet fin max over the oceanic v-12. Much of the consensus is that the max provides better acceleration due to its stiffer component. I am a strong swimmer and agree. Perhaps the v-12s are better suited to newer or less conditioned divers. For either fin I recommend considering a hard sole boot to provide more support and avoid foot cramping due to too much flex in the foot from softer boots. Either fin is top quality. I like the spring strap on the max. Makes for easy entry and exit. The max may also be lighter for traveling.

I bought these to go with a new set of fins per scuba.coms recommendation. They fit good and I will keep them for kayaking. Another shop rxd I buy hard sole boots to go w the jet fin max to avoid muscle cramping due to too much foot flexing in the boots under review. I agree. The hard sole allows the whole foot to act as a unit.
