Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8) image
 
(based on 122 ratings)
Brand: Tusa
Located in: Essential Equipment, Fins
When using the standard, flat fin, propulsion is inhibited solely by fault of design. When the leg is completely extended, there remains an angle of 27 degrees between the heel of the foot and the calf of the leg. This 27-degree angle causes 10% of the propulsion that is produced by the kicking motion to be lost. Because the fin is angled below the body, during the kick phase, the body is pushed up and forward, instead of straight ahead. With a normal flat fin, 10% of the diver exertion to propel him forward is lost by battling this upward force. With the TUSA X-PERTZOOM FIN, that 27-degree angle has been incorporated into the fin. This means that when the leg is fully extended, even though the angle exists between the foot and calf, the fin ends up parallel to the leg. This means that 100% of the energy expended during the kicking phase is directed toward the propulsion of the diver.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These fins were decent, but a bit underpowered for drifting reefs will current. I will be dumping them for stiffer fins. I also like more power when diving for the bottom. They run large. I wear a size 11 Tusa boot/slipper. The Tusa M-LG fin still felt roomy, comfy enough however.

These fins work great. I was a little hesitant since they are split and I've never used split, but I'm glad I got them. They are extremely efficient and are practically effortless to use. Highly recommend!

The fins are great. I feel very fast with minimal effort. I'm a big guy, 6'4'', 290 pounds and they work like charm in both scuba and snorkeling. Boots are necessary. I'm size 13, and use size 14 boots with the X large fins. They fit great. Great Product

Great, lightweight and easy to put on/take off. They seem most effective when you are not paddling quickly. Slow, leisurely kicks seem to create the best effect, which is great for diving.

These are awesome fins! I was a little worried when i opened up the box and pulled them out because they are a lot longer than your average flipper. However they are amazing. They require very little effort to kick.

[...] Just as a comment I would like to inform you that size of the TUSA split fins are large for me. I selected the size as per the size chart in your web page but it is little too large. From the previous reviews others have made I can see someone else also have had the size problem, so it would be better to review the size chart for TUSA split fins.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I dove Lanai, HI with these fins. They worked very well. Comfortable, powerful and efficient. I wouldn't wear these without dive boots, I don't think they would fit well without them. I also wore them snorkeling with the boots. They are probably too large and heavy to get just for snorkeling.

Service & Delivery comments:

Delivery was prompt, product was new and in good condition. I didn't need to contact customer service. Everything was fine.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

My first 12 dives I used a pair of fins my dad bought when he just got into diving. I ended up with cramps about 15 minutes in and continued to get them throughout the dive everytime. I have used these fins on my last 2 dives and have not gotten a single cramp. I can say that my kicks are more powerful, require much less work and i have more control. This has enabled me to dive longer as I'm not burning through my air as before.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I just want to point out that when I got this it felt really big even with boots on. I wear a size 9 and according to the sizing chart I should wear a medium(7-11). But when I tried it on I had to pull the strap all the way out and it was still loose. So I'm think I probably need a small(4-7)...scratching my head. So I returned this one (thanks to the easy return policy of LeisurePro) and got a Mares Raptor size small(6-9) instead ...its almost the same thing and their sizing are much more accurate.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These fins are great! I am a straight 7 in womens, and i wasn't sure about the sizing but the small fits really well on my feet and the adjustable strap is really smoothe for getting them off an on. I used to use an older model of Tusa fins that weren't the split design until a couple of my friends told me about these and they were certaintly right. As i do alot of snorkelling i was a bit unsure about whether they would be just as good for snorkelling as they are for scuba, but they were fine. They are light, give me the propulsion i need, they don't give me leg and foot cramps like my older fins and you basically can't even feel them on!

Fin performance is difficult to measure but neither my wife or myself have suffered any leg cramping since switching from straight fins to these. When my wife switched from straight fins to these she began to out-swim me. I bought a pair. Now I can keep up.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I used to own some cheapo fins that gave me hideous shin cramps when surface swimming (I do a lot of shore diving). I heard a rumor than split fins were more comfortable especially when doing long swims so when these were on sale in a package I decided to give them a try. I loved them. They're a great deal, way cheaper than some other split fins I've seen and they're really comfortable on those long swims. And you can go FAST! I'd accidentally leave people behind and have to stop for a bit to let them catch up. No more cramping, aching legs. My only complaint is they're a little big on me but I may have ordered a size too large, and they're a little annoying to loosen the straps, especially with cold fingers.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

As many of the reviews say the fins really help you avoid leg cramps but its at the loss of some efficiency if you happen to be fighting a strong current or surge. Kind of like choosing a lower gear/speed on a bicycle.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I read a lot of reviews before buying these fins. When I did, I was still a little skeptical about the reduction of stress on muscles and joints, but well, they were right. No more pain on my left knee the day after diving/snorkeling. Also, I could keep ahead of other divers easily. As with any split fins, try to keep the kicking angle small when swimming against currents. Last tip: try to get them in black, the black composite material is supposed to be more rigid.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These fins worked great for me. I have knee problems & my legs/feet get spastic/cramps. These fins allow me to conserve air, move thru the water faster, & are easier on my muscles then my standard fins. I have used my buddies for many dives & decided to buy my own pair. Great price to. I wear a size 9 women's shoe. I dive in either a 5mm hard sole boot or a 3mm soft sole boot & the M/ML fins fits both boots great. Yeah you can't do certain kicks with these but overall for me the pros came out on top of the cons!

Finally convinced my wife to get a pair. I'v had mine for 5 years and they have been used on more than 200 dives. The quick release buckle is great for removal. The fins help relieve leg strain as you can move effortlessly with a simple ankle kick or scissor style kick. Great control and good speed under water

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

This is a good split fin for its price, better than my Scubapro splits in general.

feels true to size, Great for those with bad knees or have a hard time kicking. Really, it's almost you aren't strained at all but you are moving quite quickly and pretty light.

The bad well it is very long , cumbersome on the bottom floor, does only flutter kicks, floppy, tends to slap the surface water and not stay submerged. Thrust is definitely not here.

If you want a split fin, this is great for its price.

I bought these fins for a trip to Bonaire. I actually prefer them to my Biofins. I found them more comfortable and for snorkeling they were much more efficient than the biofins. For diving, they were a bit stiffer than the Biofins but they were just as easy to "fin" and I had no problem with speed or manueverability. Highly recommended.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These fins allow for effortless and efficient propulsion. I often find myself having to slow down for my dive buddies. They work well with my shorter and slower kicks. I wear medium booties, but fit nice and comfortably in the XLarge size. They are a breeze to slip in/out of. If you're looking for high quality and high performance at a great price, then I would highly recommend these fins.

These fins worked well for both scuba and snorkeling. They were very cofortable. [...] I swam/snorkeled with manta rays, humpback whales, dolphins and lots of different colorful reef fish. I got to dive with grey reef sharks, sea turtles, and a very friendly monk seal.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I've been using a pair of these fins for about 2 years now and I can honestly say that they are the MOST EFFICIENT and ERGONOMIC fins I've ever used in my 21 years of diving. I used to dive with ScubaPro Jetfins exclusively. Then I tried a pair of these on...
I had my doubts when I first saw these "new-fangled" split fins, but after I actually USED them for the first time, I couldn't believe the difference! Not only are they a FRACTION of the weight of my old fins, but they out-propel them hands down. And my days of leg cramping underwater are just about a distant memory too...
These fins are well suited for open water diving and for diving where some extra propulsion is needed(like kicking into a stiff current).
Bottom line is: Don't take my word for it- try on a pair for yourself.

This is my second set of these fins. I still have not worn the first ones out and I have over 500 dives on them. I just could not pass up the price of this sale. My first ones cost me [$] and I was more than satisfied with them and still am. If I wear them out this is is their replacements.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

While I haven't done a whole lot of diving, during the course of training and open water dives I have used several styles of fins. On my last dive I tried the SF-8 fins, and immediately contacted LeisurePro for a set. Minimum effort with great result. The most comfortable that I have worn(I always use boots), and I don't seem to get the leg fatigue I have with other fins. Great buy!

Service & Delivery comments:

Leisure Pro has been my go to company. Fast shipping, excellent customer service, and the best prices will keep me coming back!

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

This is one of the best fins I have owner, and this is the second pair I picked up for myself. I also picked up a pair for my girlfriend, because you can't beat the price here. I marked that they fit about a half size big, but since I already knew this, it wasn't a problem for me, just something to be aware of when you are buying. The only way to describe using these fins is that it's like kicking with nothing on your foot, but you're moving along like you have the stiffest most efficient fin. They are amazing, and I definitely recommend them for anyone that has had knee/hip problems in the past.

Great for scuba, takes less effort to swim. The down side - standing on these angled fins on the bottom is an issues, walking in them is worse. Abit on the heavy side so consider the weight if you shore dive - best for boat dives. Leisure Pro gave me a fantastic deal. For the money these are great fins

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I purchased these fins because I have an ankle that I broke a few years ago and regular fins hurt it after a while. They are stiffer than I had expected, but they will propel you with just a slight kick. I have enjoyed them so far, but after a while it still irritates my ankle. It is a good fin and less expensive than others. I find it works very well with short kicks and not giant flutter kicks.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I'm a Professional Dive Master in Maui, Hawaii, I use my Tusa X-pert Zoom fins everyday I dive. The rare occasional rough currents are of no issue using these fins, has lots of power with lot less effort than paddle or non-split fins. Tip: because of the downward angle of the fin minimize walking with them on, may cause undue pressure on insert in front of foot pocket.

Service & Delivery comments:

Delivery was faster than expected, even through US Mail. Product(s) arrived in perfect condition, well packed. Customer service (e-mail) with manufacturer on prior pair of Tusa fins was prompt and helpful.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I used these fins on a night dive with several friends. I had no problems zooming along and passing them whenever I wanted with minimal kick cycles. I love these fins and wouldn't trade them for anything. Oh and did I mention this dive was during a south swell with plenty of surge? I also loved how they felt on my feet. They were very comfortable, I wear these fins with booties. I have a size 13 foot and ordered the XL. I like the buckle system too. Very easy to lock and unlock. In one word I would describe these fins as awesome!

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I used these fins for the first time on a night dive. Super sweet! With a building south swell, the surge was picking up. I had no problem passing all the other divers. I'm 6'3" and 245lbs. Pretty big. Kick cycles were minimal and moved me through the surge effortlessly. I loved how they fit and felt. I wear a size 13 shoe and I purchased the XL fins. I also wear booties. I didn't even realize that I had them on my feet. I can't wait to use them again tomorrow and the next day and the next day. I love Maui!

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I have used these fins for a number of years for general SCUBA and spearfishing.. Last year, I lost one in heavy seas on a deep water diving trip. For some reason, all of the shops were out of the size/color I wanted, and I would up purchasing one, and then another, pair of competitors' highly touted fins. Neither brand compared with the TUSA X-Pert Zooms, and as soon as I found what I wanted I bought another pair. The angle of the fin makes surface swims a breeze, which also makes them ideal snorkeling fins.

Three other divers and myself, out of a group of six, wore these fins. Comming up out of a canyon we were blasted by a strong current. Those of us wearing the split fins could'nt swim the current. We had to dive back down into the canyon to avoid being swept away. The other divers wearing regular fins could have overcome the current. These fins are dangerous! I'm a strong swimmer in good shape. I have'nt worn them since that dive.

The open back design is a plus, especially with boots. Also if the strap rips you would only have to replace the strap. On my last fins the heel ripped so the fins had to be replaced. Very comfortable and easy to put on. Much less effort needed to swim than standard type fins I've had in the past. Definitely worth every penny!

Great fins-comfortable, great price, efficient really enjoyed using in Cozumel recently. Accomodated the current bootie I own and I am going to purchase a heavier boot and I am sure it will fit that as well. I like the flexibility of the Tusa fins, my Cressi fins were so stiff I had scraped the skin off the top of my toes by the end of a dive vacation.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

Head and shoulders above the rest! The split fin and angled design reduces effort and they really mean it! The slightest little kick really "zooms" you forward, and with a small learning curve, you're able to maneuver much easier in the water using only your legs!

A diving buddy swears the expensive solid fins he bought a few years ago are the best they've ever made. But when I let him use my X-pert Zooms on one dive, he was sold and tried to steal them from me the rest of the trip. He's now an owner, too!

The only drawback - and keep this in mind when purchasing any split fin - is that although they are FANTASTIC in relatively calm water, they do require more effort than a solid fin when swimming against a strong current. Not sure how the physics work on that, but it's true. Still, they're the best fins I've ever owned and definitely worth the extra few dollars. Cheaper when purchased as part of a package.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

Every time I dive people ask "do those split things work?" These are by far the best fins Ive every used. I have problems with cramps but these provide ease when snorkeling, spearfishing, and diving. These accommodate any size boot even for divers with wider feet. The angle of the fin helps with more efficient propulsion and cuts down on fatigue. Very durable and will last for years if taken care of. Definitely worth the extra few bucks.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

I got a pair because my wife hurt her knee and I got them because I have a bad back. They worked just like everyone said they would. Good movement without the extreme effort. If you can afford these fins you should get them. They cost more then regualr fins but that's the only knock against them. The value is there.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These fins are fantastic. I did a lot of reading about split vs single blade fins before I purchased. I would have to now be in the category of people who have tried and love split fins - I think it is a myth that they are not efficient or quick. My partner has Plana Avanti Quattro fins and I don't have a problem with speed against him. They are so effortless and quite effective with even with the flick of your ankle! They also tend to stir up the bottom LESS! I will stay with splits in future and these are a great fin to start with! Quality materials and fin straps also!

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These fins are awesome!!! So efficient, smooth, easy to use, there is simply no better fin out there. I wouldn't recommend them for snorkeling, but they certainly could be used for this as well. They're so easy to put on and off, and i noticed a considerable amount of energy saved just from using these fins. Buy them, it's definitely worth it.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

The size chart says the mediums fit mens size 7-11. In addition, it says to add one size if you are using hard sole boots. I wear mens size 8 and was using the Tusa Imprex hard soled boots and I would not recommend the medium size fins with anything smaller. Without the boots, my feet would drown in these fins. For soft soled boots, I would rather have the small size zoom fins. The foot pocket does seem to have a little extra room in terms of width, so it's clear that they can handle bigger hard soled boots than my size 8's. I'm sure they can handle size 9 boots, and probably 10's.

As for the fins in the water....haven't used them that much yet, but they seem fine. I was a little worried that the foot pocket might be too loose in terms of width, but I haven't noticed that. They are heavy weight and seem well constructed. My medium's weight 2 lbs, 3 oz. each. That's still less than Apollo's, but a lot more than my Oceanic Caribe full foots.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

Overall, I am very happy with this split fin, I share it with my daughter who is a size 7, I am a size 8.5. It fits both our boots. The buckles are easy to get in and out of. I move faster in these and easy helicopter turns vs Mares Volo paddle fin. Paddle fin is easier for moving backwards but I cramp less in split fin.

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These run a little big which is ok if you are wearing a booty. TRY THEM ON BEFORE YOU BUY! I like the velocity I get from them. They really move in the water. They lose a little power in a STRONG current, but seem to work well in a moderate current for me. They look really cool, too!

Comments about Tusa Tusa X-Pert Zoom Open Heel Split Fins (SF-8):

These work well for both snorkeling and scuba, for both weaker and stronger swimmers, and for short and longer stroke/legged people. This is the third pair for use by our recreational snorkeling and diving family, and I'd probably go buy them again if I needed to. This particular pair was purchased for my 13yr old daughter who gave them a 5 star rating.
