Comments about Hollis Gear Hollis F1 Open Heel Bat Dive Fins:
I use the F1s for just about everything. When teaching I like that they are heavy so its easy to demonstrate skills with them without my feet floating. In the ocean I like that they are very powerful and that I can kick through currents when needed where as with other fins I would not be able to. They are very powerful and efficient, you seem to get every ounce of power you put into them back with each fin kick. I will warn that they may be a little too much for new divers. My first pair of fins were the F1s and I too was warned that they are extremely good fins but take a good amount of leg strength. So for about 8 weeks I used them every weekend and would get leg cramps every time I used them. So I bought a different pair of fins that were easy on the legs, which I thought I liked, until I was talked into giving my F1s another try. When I did I was shocked by how powerful they were and with repeated use my legs got strong enough to use them without issues. Not that diving is about going fast and speeding through the ocean, but if diving was a race, these are the fins that would win it. I love them now, and decided to buy a second set for my drysuit. Which I bought from LP a few months ago. Love the spring straps, and everything else about them, they are built like tanks too.
