    love em or hate em--not too many folks in the middle. If you get used to using these fins you will not want to go back to other big leg-crampers, ever. The pro model is stiffer than the original and that does indeed translate to extra snap and more forward movement with less effort. My advice is spend the extra few bucks and buy the "pro" version--it's worth it. On my feet, the company's claims have proven true. The style of kick needed for these is different than std fins, and I think that's where many people lose the connection and don't like these. It takes a short snappy stroke (they describe it as a flutter kick)--long slow strokes will pretty much get you nowhere. But one short snappy kick will get you three times farther and three times faster (OK MIGHT be exaggerating a little bit). Oh and with little "reverse scoops" you can back up. And walk forward into the water. And a BIG bonus is how small these dudes are--If you travel they are GREAT. Just keep an eye on them--they are pricey and will walk in certain resort areas!

    I am confident that I have the appropriate size..a size down would be too small, a size up would be too big. The part that goes over the top of my foot presses heavily into my foot making it sore. Not uncomfortable at first, but after a day diving, it is creating such unbearable pressure on my foot that I cannot wear them anymore. This is while wearing a 5mm hardsole boot. Very disappointing considering how much they cost me.

      Comments about Force Fin Force-Fin "Pro Fins":

      I've used this fin for about 15 years and I'm on my second pair. Once I did try Apollo Bio-Fins and they hurt my feet so I went back to my trusty FF Pro.

      Their forte is foot comfort and compact for travel. They're efficient enough as I never have any trouble keeping up. I highly recommend this fin with the bungee strap which is sold by Force Fin.

          I moved to these from Apollo Bio Fins. No more cramps. Hooray! It took me a few dives to get used to them. Now I won't wear any others. You get a lot of stares from clueless and the usual FF naysayers. They work well and I have no issues with them at all.

            I have used these fins since the early 90's and absolutely love them. I would never consider using any other fin. You can turn on a dime with these fins. Pivoting with one foot is a breeze. The power of these compact fins is outstanding.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Years ago my girlfriend bought a pair from Leisure Pro (based on my constant nagging that her fins were awful!)
            They DO run a bit small (if you want to use boots order bigger!), so hers did not fit the first time around. The lady at LP couldn't have been nicer getting her the right size very quickly. Same experience later with a mask.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            VIRGINIA R  With my big Mares fins I was getting cramps. I have hardly any cramping with these. They go fast enough. Easy to maneuver side to side & backwards. Low profile when flopping from boat bench to exit. Unique, so easy to find. Strap is more sturdy than that on my old fins.
            Shopper  What is the difference between the "pro fin" and the original fin? Thanks.
            LeisurePro S  The fins are the same except for the pro being a stiffer more powerful fin.
