About Apollo Bio-Fins Pro XT, Silver

Apollo was the first manufacturer to recognize the potential of Split-Fin Technology. Every major dive company now offers some form of Split-Fin. In a sea of imitators Apollo's Bio-Fin Series has continually taken top honors. Every model Bio-Fin submitted to Scuba Diving Magazine (SDM) for annual review has rated "Testers' Choice". With eight consecutive wins, Apollo's Bio-Fin Series is clearly the fin to beat.

Bio-Fin Pro XT is Specifically Produced with a 30% Stiffer Blade for Greater Torque, it is a much more Rigid Fin. The Apollo Bio-Fin standards of 100% Rubber and 20 degree Angle help this Fin provide Excellent Performance, Low Strain, and Reduced Air Consumption.

    Comments about Apollo Bio-Fins Pro XT, Silver:

    Took a while to adjust to the new kicking style since I am accustomed to using large paddle fins, but after a couple dives with these fins I was able to adjust and get the same kind of power and control the paddles provided but with less effort. Worked great even in extremely strong current.

      Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  What size do you recommend for a male 8/9 hard sole boot?
      LeisurePro S  I would recommend the large for the hard soled boots, medium for soft boots.
      Shopper  I wear women's shoe size 7-8. What size Apollo bio fin would I need?
      LeisurePro S  Unless you are wearing thick boots, these fins will probably be too large for you. If you would like to try them, I would definitely recommend the medium.
      Shopper  what is the difference been this fin and the regular Apollo Bio Fins
      LeisurePro S  This fin is stiffer than the "regular" Bio fins. Some people feel that the more rigid blade makes it respond slightly quicker to direction changes and alternate kicking styles. The stiffer fin also gives you greater thrust in the water.
