Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

These fins can't be beat. Had mine since 1969 and still using them. Got a small split in foot pocket just last week and still was able to do a timed 800 meter speed snorkel and a 100 meter tired diver tow for Divemaster. In 800 meter, I smoked 3 other younger guys with new hi-tech fins.Fins held up fine.I'm 53 now(got them in 8th grade) and will eventually maybe have to replace them. Spraying them with silicone when storing will make them last forever.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

Still being made after 30 years for a reason! These things are built like Goodyear tires. Thick, stiff, heavy rubber... indestructible. Simple design, with nothing to break. Lots of propulsion from a single fin stroke. I've used them for my public safety dive classes, as well as recreational diving in Panama City. These might not accomodate boot style booties though. I have a 13 foot, and ordered an XL, and can only use booties with a thin rubber bottom, NO boots for me. I recently purchased a set of SP Jet Sport fins which will accomodate a boot style bootie. Jet Fins are heavy out of the water. Personally, I don't pay any attention to their weight in the water, but I'm a big guy (6'5", 250). You can put these in the bottom of your dive bag and not worry about them getting mis-shapen due to other objects sitting on top of them.

Great in the toughest currents. I could be in the water for hours with them and not feel fatigue. I wouldn't use any other fin out there. These are the only fin you need. If the military uses them then they are proven to work.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

I learned to dive in 1985 and these were the fins I learned to dive with. After 18 years I am getting back into diving and checked out various sites to see how these fins stacked up against newer "sleaker" models. They are in perfect shape, a few scuffs here and there, but I decided to keep them since based on these reviews.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

The other reviews will testify how these fins are possibly the only fins you will ever need. Not the flashiest color, not a crazy eye-catching design, but tried and true in all conditions. These tear through current better than anything I have ever tried.

The only trick is to be careful on the foot size measurement. Your boots you wear with these fins can have a strong impact on what size to get. I wear a men's US 7, but with 5mm boots with a thick sole, I needed a large.

Also, the straps are not easy. Get spring straps and you have the perfect set of fins for all conditions.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

These fins are excellent for dry suit and technical diving. They perform better than any split fin in a strong current. Don't drop them though as they will sink to the bottom, upside of their weight is no ankle weights needed. Not really suitable for novice recreational divers or those without a lot of lower leg strength.

It is great fin with my drysuit, especially with it's little weight, I don't have to wear the ankle weight (but you need some practice to not to wear ankle weight)anymore. Do you a favor by getting the spring hill strap for the fin, it is much easier to put it on and off.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

Fantastic product. I acquired these fins when the set I was using on a trip developed multiple cracks. I payed nearly double the price for them at the local dive shop, but would do it again in a pinch. I used to own a pair of Gorilla fins that were given to me second hand years ago, and when I saw these I grabbed them immediately. I have had them nearly a year and am extremely satisfied. The only downside is the lack of draining holes or vents in the toes. This causes the fins to hold water in the foot while exiting the water.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

Feels like they'll last forever. How does the saying go? "If it works dont mess with it" Just make sure You order a size larger if you have "thick botties". Also, you may want to consider a pair of "scuba Pro spring heel straps". Will make it a whole lot easier putting them on and taking them off. Last but not least; a little heavy but worth their weight.

P.S. Had to exchange mine for a larger size ("thick booties":)). The guys at Leisure Pro were real good about it. No hassles.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

Great Fins. I have size 16 feet so my fin choices were VERY limited. Other reviewers said these werent very efficient fins but the XXL size that i bought work very well. They fit well but my only complaint is that the boot pocket is very tall. Looks to be made for thicker boots / dry suit. Only took me about 15 min to get used to it...after that it was like butta.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

This fin is an all-time classic. I owned a pair about 20 years ago, and decided to pick up another pair after changing to the twin-jet fin a number of years back. This fin is slightly wider than many, giving it good surface area for propulsion. Strap is a bit difficult to pull off while at the ladder when re-entering the boat. I've seen a lot of folks add a spring-strap modification for this reason.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

I bought my first set of these old timers at a yard sale 20 years ago ( or so ) and thought they were good.
Sold them and got some newer style longer fins and 5 minutes into my next dive, I wanted my old jetfins back!! The new fangled ones were actually folding in half when I'd try to get moving...
I now own another pair, and love to watch people smirk when I pull them out.
then I disappear!
These things are stiff enough to let you explode away from a dead float, and stop on a dime!
Short enough to allow quick turns and twists.
You fad divers can have your fancy stuff. I'm keeping my old fuddy-duddy flips!

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

These have been around for many years and are still in use. That alone says a lot. The split fins supposedly give more speed, but I am not racing. In my opinion these are as good as it gets, and the price is incredible relative to many of the "fad" fins. I suspect that these fins will still be in production many years from now.

Still THE Professional fin ...

I have size 10.5 wide feet and own both the the XL and the XXL.

The XL works for most with standard boots and is very efficient with a powerkick

The XXL fits over athletic shoes when doing run-fin-run conditioning

My first set lasted nearly 20 years..

I use both XL and L Jet fins, XL for deep and wreck dives, L for reef and shore dives. My wife uses the M Jet fins, easier for her to power. I had one L pair last 30 years of diving, just replaced them this year from LeisurePro and saved about $32.00 with shipping on the total purchase.Great fins will last like all things if you take care of them.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

There is a reason that these fins have been in continuous production since the 60's! There is a reason that these are the prefered fins for the military, cave, wreck, and technical divers! That reason is that ScubaPro got them right the first time and then left them alone!
I have been diving for forty years now and I have never used a better fin.
This fins offers incredible power and control. You can easily do manuevers with them (helicopter, reverse sculling, etc.) that are difficult or impossible with lessor fins.
They are shorter and easier to pack than most. And, their slightly negative bouancy offen aids in achieving proper trim.
Try them for a while and you are unlikely to want to use anything else!

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

These good old-timers have place anywhere where gimmick features are not desirable. Basic construction, high efficiency and durability are the best traits. They are quite heavy but it can be just the extra weight to eliminate for ankle weights. The only negative thing I have is sizing. I have XL and XXL sizes but there is definitely a space for one size between them. While the XL size fits me tight on size 9 (5 mm wet) boot, the XXL is almost too big on a heavy dry suit boot with two pairs of wool socks.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

The ScubaPro Jet fins are a great piece of gear. Their design is tried and true, as it has not undergone any changes in over 30 years. They provide excellent propulsion and power (a must for rescue/salvage applications) but consequently are very heavy.

Make sure you have booties with a solid sole or the pocket will be too wide and the fin will move side-to-side abraiding your foot--not fun on long swims. Being made entirely of rubber, they will not lose their shape if abused or forgotten in the bottom of a gear bag.

For the serious diver, this is the only set of fins you'll ever need.

I work as a rescue swimmer for a fire department in Maine. I got these fins about 5 months ago. These fins are superior to anything I have worn before. They allow you to swim very efficiently with much less effort. After seeing them in action other members of our marine team are going to purchase these fins as well...

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

To use this fin properly you have to work your way to it slowly by using first a hard fin to prepare your legs for this very strong fin. Otherwise you get cramps every once in a while. Take also electrolytes ( Magnesium, Pottassium ...) to prevent cramps untill your leg mussels have adapted.
Nothing beats this fin against the strongest current.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

These are excellent fins that provide a lot of thrust but require a higher fitness level from the diver. They are more compact than many fins on the market today, many of which tend to be much longer. I find I get superior position and attitude control with these fins than others I've tried. Get some practice swimming with them before going on a big dive trip, because they do require strong muscles!

These fins are awesome I like to dive as much as I can in oceans, lakes and rivers I have not had any problems with these fins at all. They go on and off easy which is always nice and move you through the water with minimal effort. I have been using the same pair of fins for the past four years and have loved them ever since. i will continue to buy these fins as long as ScubaPro will make them.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

I'm pretty much going to echo most of the other revers' sentiments: if you're going to buy a set of fins, get these. Super comfy, compact (they fit anywhere, and people won't be tripping over your fins on the dive boat), and with enough power to propel you through the water like a Polaris missle - very handy for dealing with the strong currents here in the Northeast. I've heard talk that they're not very flutter-kick friendly because of their stiffness, but they worked really well with both flutter and frog kicks. Bottom line: there's a reason these fins are favored by military divers, and that's because they rock.

One thing: the sizing seems off. I wear a size 7 7mm Instadry boot, but the medium fin didn't fit - I had to swap it for a large.

They are most respected fins in Cave/Tech diving community and very efficient for Frog and Backward kicks propulsion techniques.

I am a certified scuba diver, but because my wife does not dive, I just snorkel most of the time. These fins give me excelent propulsion when needed. I like the stiffness that some other reviewers seem to dislike about these fins.

These fins really get you moving in the water. My first pair of fins were ScubaPro twin jets and although I really liked them I found that I really liked to frog kick in the water, which split fins are not very efficient at. My jets really move me through the water now when I frog kick and I really appreciate their rugged, durable construction. The military and almost every single tech diver on the planet can't be wrong!!!!!! try them you will love them.

I'm on my 2nd set. I always carry them in my bag, just love them. However, a warning for those new to the sport. Some cramping might be experienced due to the extra effort required. Most notably, if wondered a bit further than anticipaped, and under surge conditions the kicking back portion of the dive could not be as pleasant. I've seen this happen more than once. So, as always, don't push beyond your abilities.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

These are the first pair of fins that I have used. They work really well, are very durable, and as the other reviews say, they propel you far and are good against current. However, the sizing is a little small and they are narrow fins so if you have wide feet, as I do, your feet start to cramp if you buy too small. So if you buy these, buy big, other than that they are a great product.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

Great fins, awesome power and fantastic classic design.

One thing to note, is that the sizes are a bit wack. I have a size 14 shoe, and bought a XXL pair of fins. I have a friend who has a size 10 shoe, and bought a XL pair of fins. The size difference between the 2 is ridiculous.

Mine fit perfectly with a size 14 boot on, however my friends fins were far far too small for him. He needs to buy the XXL's and get a chunkier boot to make best use of the fin. If using a dry suit with rock boots, then go with the XXL pair, unless of course u have a very small foot. I would suggest the XL to be closer to a size 8 or 9 with a boot on.

Also, the spring straps from scubapro are very good with this fin. With the spring straps, I'd suggest that this is a fin you could almost use for life.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

I dove with these for years but had to switch to the next big thing when Twin Jets came out. I've come to my senses and gone back to the tried and true Jet Fins. They're not as sexy, but they get the job done better than any other fin I've ever used.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

This classic fin works as advertised. It gives plenty of power when flutter kicking and works superbly a frog kick. The weight helps keep the feet down in a drysuit.

The only real drawback are the terrible straps attached to these fins, which is why almost everyone who uses them has replaced it with a spring strap.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

I've used this fin from the day I started taking open water classes in 1988 and wouldn't use any other type of fin. My son who is now a rescue diver started using fins he picked out at a store that didn't sell scubapro. After trying my jet fins he was convinced that the jet fins were the best, we both have a new pair. By the way my I still have and use the set of fins I bought in 1988. This product is a great performer and a lifetime pruchase

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

An old design that was gotten right the first time. This fin propels you well on a flutter kick, yet allows alternate kicks (frog, etc) with precision control. Shorter than most other fins, it's easier to walk in if you have to.

The only complaints that I have are that the fin is made of a heavy material. They are much heavier than others that I've used. Also, the strap is difficult to adjust because it's the old design buckle. I found that I simply pull the strap down below the foot pocket, then put my foot in and stretch the strap over my ankle.... easy to do.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

I bought these because I needed a fin that would accommodate DUI Rockboots. The foot pocket on these fins (XXL) is huge, and my size 14 Rockboots fit in them easily. My only criticism is with the buckle. It is very sturdy, but hard to adjust. If you set them up once and don't mess with them, you should be fine, but I wouldn't suggest trying to adjust them right before you're about to giant stride off the back of a dive boat, or while wearing heavy gloves. These fins are classic for a reason, but I wouldn't mind seeing ScubaPro upgrade the buckles to something more functional.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

I first encountered the jet fin 20+ years ago while learning about snorkeling in college. On a college budget, they were outside my price range. And for snorkeling, I didn't want anything so heavy. But they *moved* me through the water. Years later, got my scuba certs. Wore several diff fins during classes. Once certed, was surprised to discover jet fins still existed, as a friend had a couple pairs. Tried them again, and haven't looked back. Only problem I found was pulling them off if I sized them to my foot and wore boots. Sized them one up (XL instead of L), and they are perfect for boat diving.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

Scubapro's Jet Fin have been around for a very long time. This is my second pair in just over 20 years of diving. While these fins are a bit heavier than many on the market, considering travel weight restrictions, etc., they are impervious to just about any kind of damage. Replacing the standard rubber heel strap with a spring heel strap increases comfort, and allows you to avoid adjustments when you switch from one type of wet suit boot to another.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

This is my third pair of fins. I like them the best because they give me perfect trim whilst diving in my dry suit and are the most efficient fins on the market to execute the backward kick.
In a wet suit they feel a little heavy and more effort is required to maintain trim esp. if utilising frog kick.
Very sturdy design. Spring straps that come as an option are a must in my opinion.

Extra large has perfect weight for trim in dry suit. It also fits my wet suit boots. They are great for helicopter turns and backing up Yes suimming backwards in a restricted area where you cannot go forward any farther and cannot turh around. Also great for inverted non silting kicks.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

These fins are the best and they only get better if you add the spring straps and the price tag will still be less than most other fins on the market.

The best set of fins around by far. Perfect for instructors and advanced divers. You can propel yourself and a student / intro with ease and just as easy with a 120# 4 tank tech rig.

Comments about Scubapro ScubaPro Jet Fins, Black:

The Scubapro jetfins were released in the 60's and they are still the best fins on the market today..

I have some friends who have tried the other fancy "split" fins on to find out that scuba equipment is heavy and the only way to efficently move you and your equipment throught the water is by moving alot of water with your fins.. Everyone keeps comming back to the Scubapro jetfins..

I trained on jet fins 20 years ago and they are still the best fin on the market. I've tried split fins and the only difference is the price. Save your extra coin for a computer and buy these fins.
