About Atomic Aquatics Split Fins Smoke on the Water

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. Fin is equipped with EZ-LOK Squeeze-Style" Quick-Release Buckles which Snap-On-and-Off with Ease, yet Will-Not Disengage- Accidentally, and the Spring Strap that Automatically Compensate for Boot Compression and Adjust with changes in Depth. The Spring Straps are Rust-Resistant Stainless Steel Springs were designed with Variable Pitch Geometry. Divers get a more Comfortable Fit and Easy One-Hand Removal with the Large Rubber Thumb Loop, yet the springs are Resistant to Deformation if Overstretched. Included on the "Smoke on the Water" Split Fin and available for all Atomic Split Fins or as a Universal Retrofit for other Brands (see SKU: ATMFSS).

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 Open Heel Foot Pocket designed to Fit-your-Foot without Stress Points, with Semi-Open Toe for added Comfort. The Internal Sole Plate creates Ridged Platform Beneath-the-Foot for Greater Power Transfer to the Blade yet provides a Soft, Comfortable Foot Pocket. Fins are available in sizes Small, Medium, Large or X-Large are Black in color and are covered by a 12 month limited warranty. So make the switch and use less effort which equates to less air usage and longer more comfortable dives.

I have owned "regular" fins for 15 years before my research lead me to these. Efficiency from split fin design is gained by using shorter kick strokes within the diver's wake profile. Less effort for the same speed means less air is used and more bottom time.

These fins offer at least two other distint advantages: Spring tension strap allows for quick and secure donning & removal. The 2nd advantage is that the fins float even in fresh water. Both features are a real plus for divers of all experience levels.
These fins are a little wider than some fins making them just a little harder to pack on trips.

Their overall design, quality and performance represent the state-of-the-art of fin technology in my opinion, and will provide you with years of dependable service. My wife also owns a pair these fins.

The springs and clips are not designed well. When you adjust the strength of the spring, you need a screw driver and not make a mistake in the reassemble of the clip; otherwise you will lose a dive. The clips are easily broken though it's mostly cosmetic and you can still use the fin, but you do worry about the strength of the clip. Save you money and don't buy the fins with springs.

        Awesome fin! I have never used full fins, and have always used split fins. These fins are all they claim to be. I haven't had any issues in any currents yet. They are a lot stiffer/sturdier which gives them the power that other split fins do not have due to them being very flexible. They still allow for easy maneuverability like split fins do as well as minimizing cramps. I promote these fins to all my dive buddies. Highly recommend.

          LeisurePro is GREAT company! I send all my divers to this site. I've used many fins & these are my favorite, VERY smooth & very little effort is needed to propel yourself underwater.I'm never "sore" the following day after diving. Spring clip in system is AWESOME!

          I wore Scuba Pro Twin Jets for 5 years. I tried this fins and oh my god!!!!!!! What a huge different it is now to just cut throught the water and not work so hard to get where you wanna go. Simply the best fins I have ever used. Leisure Pro is a great company and I will never get any equipment from anywhere else.

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          COREY B  Awesome power & ease of donning. I use both flutter & whip kick technique as a videographer, & the precision of keeping me where I want to be is outstanding. Used them in Galapagos currents & they really shined. The only downside is that they are a bit longer than my other fins, & so I have to especially be mindfull of keeping them off the coral.
