About Atomic Blade Fins

The Atomic Blade Fin combines 2-Fame Designs on One-Fin to Maximize Kicking Power in the Water. Atomic has achieved this with POWER-LOOP MONOCOQUE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING MONOCOQUE and POWER RAILS . Power-Loop Monocoque, is an Engineering-Term meaning Single Shell." This design structure is Heavily Utilized in the design of an Aircraft Fuselage or Indy Race Car, for example. Power-Loop Monocoque is a Construction Technique that Utilizes the External Skin to Support Some-or-Most of the Load-Area of the Fin while Power is applied through the Frame Rails (Power Rails) into the water.

POWER-LOOP MONOCOQUE FOOT POCKET POWER PLATE The Power-Loop Monocoque Structure is Located Over-the-Top of the Foot-Pocket and connected to the Fin via a Frame Rail (or Backbone/Bulkhead), Backbone Frame Structure Inside-the-Power Rails. In turn, this structure is connected to the sole plate (Power Plate), giving the diver a Very-Solid-Feeling of the Fin being Bolted" to the Foot as Power is Smoothly-Transferred to the water without Twisting. POWER RAIL The Frame Rail Structure-on-Each-Side of the Fin is designed to Mimic a Bulkhead, Backbone or Spine. VERTICAL STABILIZERS Oversized Vertical Stabilizers at the Tips keep the Fin Tracking Straight Up-and-Down. THE FOUR C'S OF ATOMIC THRUSTER FIN POWER: CAPTURE CONTAIN CHANNEL CONTROL Thruster Fins Capture Water and Contain the Flow without Spilling it Over-the-Edges while Channeling the Flow of Water Down-the-Blade and Off-the-Vertical Stabilizer Edge Tips, and Controlling the Power with Atomics' two Frame Structures (Monocoque and Frame Rail) to Fully Optimize the Paddle Fin Design.

Wow! Is what you will say once you have tried these Fins, but that's not all! The Atomic Aquatics Non-Vented Blade Fins have a NEW BUCKLE STYLING All new Buckle Style with Wicked" design and Cleaner Styling. Fin is equipped with EZ-LOK Squeeze-Style" Quick-Release Buckles which Snap-On-and-Off with Ease, yet Will-Not Disengage- Accidentally. The Rubber Fin Straps are equipped with a Large Pull-Tab for Easy Donning and Doffing. Fins are available in Multiple Colors and Sizes and are covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

    Comments about Atomic Blade Fins:

    This is a beautiful fin and for the right foot type I think it would work great. I have a high arch and instep and requested a suggestion for a fin that would fit such - plus be good for ocean diving ( sometimes swift currents)
    The leisure pro chat guy suggested two fins and I got this one. Because of the design the hard material part joins the soft rubber part right at the highest point on the top of my foot - making it very uncomfortable. There is only about an inch of soft rubber (Closest to the leg) then 1 3/4" hard material and then the rest of the foot pocket is soft. I really really wanted these fins to work so I tried different boots, socks, and even barefoot but it still was uncomfortable. I am sad to return them because I love the great design and color and I think they would preform well in the ocean

        Make sure you read the sizing chart before purchase! I didn't and assumed that a size small BladeFin would be a good fit simply because thats my usual fin size.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
        THOMAS D  These were the scubalab 2013 testers choice and I'm looking to add a pair of fins to my inventory so I chose these.
        Shopper  need suggestions for boot and open heel fin for 15 year old girl?
        SUSAN H  The Atomic Aquatics line fits women's feet well (I am size 7.5 Narrow) and can wear a small. I would choose a less stiff fin. I could not paddle with the Blade Fins on because my legs were not strong enough to move the fins through the water. I have used my Atomic Aquatics full foot split fins instead and another brand I purchased (which I do not recommend because an extra small is still large without a 5 mm boot). If you go with Atomic Aquatics open heel fin, I would recommend a split fin. However, I find the split fins are not particularly good in stronger currents.
        Shopper  What are the buoyancy characteristics of these fins? Positive or Negative?
        Kasia W  These fins are neutrally buoyant in fresh water.
