About Apollo Bio-Fins Pro XT C-Series Silver, with SS Fin Strap

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.

    I've tried using a few different fins and have found that these are the most comfortable, efficient and easy to use fins out there. There is another model of the Bio-Fins without the stainless straps but I recommend getting the straps for ease of use. The only set back is the price but it's well worth it.

    I bought these fins thinking I was going to get the best. I already own a pair of Scuba Pro Split fins and wanted to go one better. I have a large foot [14] I bought the LL the largest size they do. I was disappointed to find it too small. I had to buy a 2nd pair of narrower booties to fit the pocket. I love the steel spring strap and would highly recommend this feature for any fin. But I actually prefer my Scuba Pros, this after almost a year of using both fins side by side. I think the Scuba Pros are way more comfortable and get me through the water faster. Another thing is, I do not think split fins in general are useful for tech diving when you are carrying large loads [multiple tanks] Paddle fins are better. I also think the original black Apollos are better than the XT C-series silver.

      Excellent fins. Very fast. I just made a mistake ordering the large ones, and I should have ordered the medium ones.

        Can't brag enough about these. I try to recommend them to everyone. They push you through the water with ease, and quickly, and saving air as well. A bit heavy. Not something I would take on vac, but wouldn't dive without them on the east cost/cold water areas. (Transitioned from ScubaPro Jet fins to these)

        I can actually feel these fins dragging my entire body threw the water at high speeds. If my body was shaped like a torpedo then I could swim to China in about 3 hours.

          The best fins out there. I hate to say that there is a fin better than the jet fins, but these are it. They will push you through the water with ease. Most people have trouble keeping up with me. Buy them and you will see what I mean! I own 4 different types of fins, but these are my go-to ones from now on.

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  I'm right on the cusp between two sizes. Do you recommend the medium or large?
          LeisurePro S  The rule of thumb with boots/fins is always to go smaller than larger. I would recommend starting with the medium then.
          Jorden H  Hi what size would you recommend to suit oceanic neo size 10?
          JOHN K  All of my boots are size 10 and my Apollo Bio-Fins Pro C's in size LL fit me perfectly. My regular shoe size is 10.5 Wide. Great fins but heavy (I like them that way, helps balance out vs steel tanks). I also keep both open and ff Mares for travel.
          Shopper  Will the X-LARGE Apollo Bio-Fin Pro XT C-series - with Stainless steel fin strap except a size 10 D.U.I. Rock Boot ?
          LeisurePro S  Yes, it should.
