About Atomic Aquatics Full Foot Split Fins

Split fins have become the most popular style fin in diving today. Just look around when you are out beach diving or on the charter boat and you will soon discover that more divers are making the switch to this style fin. Why are they so popular? They are popular because they work, and you, work less! A split fin performs more like the combination of a whale's tail and a propeller. When you kick the two separate blades twist and create more of a propeller surface which will increase your propulsion and lift. You feel as if the fin is not strong enough to keep you moving as fast as you are accustomed with your full bladed fin, yet you cover the same distance in the same time.

Less Drag, More Thrust and most important Less Strength is Used. The Split Fin Design is not only unique; it uses the Latest Technology in Composite Plastic Polymer Materials to give a Light Fin (Great Travel Fin) and one that Increases Thrust and Reduces Fatigue. Extensive R&D and Testing yielded the perfect formula of Flexibility and Rigidity for Efficient Propulsion. Atomic Multi-Composite Plastics result in a Powerful Kick that requires Less Effort, Stress and Strain meaning Less Air Consumption. The Power Rails are Highly-Resilient and Perform as the Backbone of the Split Fin, Storing and Releasing Energy with Every Kick. The Semi-Ridged Flex Battens set in the Soft Elastomeric Blade, Control the Precise Wing Shape to Optimize Thrust and Reduce Drag. The Large Surface Area Blade Improves Pivoting, Turning and Alternate Kick Styles.

Thin, yet Strong and Highly Flexible Hinge Points between the Semi-Ridged Battens cause the Blade to React Quick-and-Efficiently to the Slightest Kick. The Anatomically Contoured Full Foot Pocket designed to Fit-your-Foot without Stress Points. Foot Pocket has a Large Heel Pull-Tab for Easy Donning and Doffing of Fins. The Atomic Full Foot Split Fins are available in US sizes 4.5-5.5, 6-7, 7.5-8.5, 9-10, 10.5-11.5 and 12-14 (EUR: 36-37, 38-39, 40-42, 42-43, 44-45 and 45-47), comes in Black or Yellow colors and is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

The Atomic Aquatics Full Foot Split Fins is commonly used for Recreation, SCUBA, Snorkeling, Travel and more. The Atomic Aquatics Full Foot Split Fins is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced, Recreational Diver among others. The Atomic Aquatics Full Foot Split Fins is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Atomic Aquatics Full Foot Split Fins: Comfortable, Efficient, Lightweight.

    My wife and I first bought these after reading a very favorable review several years ago. Among other things the review said "they're so fast they'll make your snorkel bend." That's been our experience, our snorkels literally bend. We've since bought them for all our children as well. We use them for snorkeling as well as scuba diving in tropical climates. They're a bit pricier than many, but in our opinion worth every penny.

    One caveat. I'm a size 11 shoe so I bought the large. The fit was quite snug and as a result I would get blisters. However, my wife never got a single blister. We compared fit one day and realized hers looked somewhat "loose" yet they stayed on very well. I ordered a pair of X-Large and have been blister free ever since.

    I frequently feel the two sides of the "split" fin hitting / rubbing together. Not that big of a deal, but I work hard to be conscious that I'm not coming into contact with the reef. These fins force me to constantly stop, thinking I've kicked the reef. Looking back, it's just the fins hitting together.

    FIns work fine, but are way to distracting for me. Going back to a blade.

      Comments about Atomic Aquatics Full Foot Split Fins:

      I wear a size 13 shoe and the XL fit just right. If you are a size 12, the pocket would be a little loose and a 14 a little snug, but probably still comfortable. The fins have plenty of power for diving with a light easy flutter kick. More power is available and would give you as much as most paddle fins. There is a difference between the materials and comfort between Atomics and Tusa fins. The Tusa's are almost as good and far cheaper, but you get what you pay for. The narrower design of the Atomics and different materials give slightly more thrust per amount of energy put in and do not tend to hit each other. I find I have to consciously keep the Tusa's apart since they have a wider design. The Atomics work better with a frog kick, but not as good as a typical paddle fin. On the surface, the 20 degree angle of the fins make a face down surface swim slightly more work than a fin without the 20 degree angle, but for diving this is a plus for the typical body position during scuba diving. Nice fins. The only reason for 4 not a 5 is the surface swimming is not perfect.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            RONALD V  Good reviews got my attention, and a lighter, slightly shorter fin that is more manageable for travel. I find it to be comfortable without booties, which is another space and weight saver in the packing process.
            Shopper  re these sizes men's or women's?
            Steve S  They are Unisex, but the sizes listed are men's sizes.
            Shopper  My size is 42~43,but your advise is 9~10' for men,10~11'for women is that correct?
            PATRICK M  Men's size 9 is equivalent to 43. In the US, Mens and Womens sizes (for the same number) are different scales. Look for a US / International shoe size conversion chart that should help.
