About Cressi Open Heel Frog Fins

The Cressi Frog Fin has been a classic in the Cressi range for many years and has a huge following from divers in every corner of the planet The fin is skillfully made with a combination of a strong copolymer and a soft elastomer This Composite design delivers efficiency when kicking and exceptional comfort

The blade originates from the upper part of the foot pocket, with a 20% increase in useful surface area compared to a traditional fin of the same length A pair of medium-large Frog fins is about 8 5 inches wide by 25 inches long and is made of a Copolymer called ethylene-vinyl-acetate Ethylene-vinyl-acetate is a state of the art plastic that has good memory The materials memory allows the fin to snap back into its original position or angle without "going flat" This creates a comfortable gentle kicking fin that delivers nice power, without inducing leg cramps

Running nearly the fins outside blade length are raised, rubber-like ridges A pair of smaller ribs runs down the fin's center These stiff ribs channel water onto the fins blade As water streams down the leg, it continues in a smooth transition across the length of the fin There is no water hydroplaning or skidding on either the up or down stroke No hydroplaning means better power and control for the diver Each kick's up and down stroke are power movements and drag is minimized

The Frog's innovative computer designed foot-pocket further aids control and comfort The pocket's top edge is lined with comfortably soft, curved, rubber-like techno-plastic Its bottom portion extends back about four inches, giving support under all or most of your foot When your foot is supported, more of the power from your leg and foot is transferred to the kick

The Frog is heavier Cressi model A Heavier fin is more durable and useful for the working diver or instructors who demand strength and comfort The Cressi Frog also works well when wearing a dry suit or thick cold water wet suit, very popular also in diving schools and excellent for rentals

It is easy to walk backwards or sideways in Frogs Small bar-like treads on the bottom provide traction when standing on a slippery surface The impact resistant plastic quick-release buckles are easy to operate, even with gloves; buckles have a sleek finish and reliably locking mechanism to lock the strap in place They buckles rotate an impressive 300 degrees, so no matter how high your arch or how high your heel strap is worn, the buckle rotates for a non-crimped, perfect fit

The Cressi Open Heel Frog Fins is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Recreational Diver among others. The Cressi Open Heel Frog Fins is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Cressi Open Heel Frog Fins: Accommodates Boots, Comfortable, Efficient.

The clips for this fin are a poor design. Most fins are very difficult to get the clip off of the actual fin. While diving at Cozumel we have lost two fin straps (including the clip assembly) The fins seem heavy compared to other brands that were actually a larger size. Very disappointed. We will look for another brand- perhaps Tusa or Aqualung. BTW, fin straps with clips cost over $20 US in Cozumel. argh... I suppose we might have got a poorly manufactured fin, but they are still very heavy.

Boat diving vs. beach diving

By Amanda

from Long Beach, CA

About Me Advanced

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Accommodates Boots
  • durable
  • Good for frog kicks
  • Good value

Cons

  • Bad for surface swim
  • Heavy
  • Not for tight spots

Best Uses

  • Cold water
  • SCUBA

Comments about Cressi Open Heel Frog Fins:

I've worn these fins on lots of boat dives and they performed well. I do more of a slow caver/frog kick and I get a lot of distance in each stroke. The texture on the bottom makes it easy to walk backwards of sideways without slipping. The fins seem to be neutral to slightly positively buoyant, so there's no need for ankle weights. This means they do not float well if taken off in the water and dropped.

I recently started doing beach dives and find them far less satisfactory for this purpose. When using a flutter kick, they do not generate much thrust, so they are slow and ineffective, particularly during a surface swim. The quick release straps can become inundated with sand and cease to function until cleaned, so I recommend swaping them out for spring straps.
