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.

Questions about this item:

Dan E  Hi..... I want to upgrade from my split fins,but I'm stuck between these Hollis F-1's and the Scubapro Jet fins. Can anyone help me out????? Pro's & Con's Thank you Danny
DAVID N  I've been happy with the Hollis F1 fins. However I've never tried the Scubapro Jet fins. Previously I used Atomic Split Fins but had to switch for dry suit diving with size 13 Rock Boots. The Atomic XL was not large enough but the Hollis 2XL was a good fit. Compared to the Atomic, the Hollis fins are stiffer. I think the Atomic fins have better kick efficiency. However in some situations I found the Hollis advantageous in that regard such as sculling or avoiding silt-up. The Hollis has a spring strap which I like. There is an over-size loop on the spring which helps when putting on or off with a gloved hand. The Hollis fins seem like they are made well. The might be a little heavier but I never felt like that caused a problem. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Dan E  Thanks for the INFO. David. I'm also using the Atomic split fins,but I'm tring to make the move from Rec. to Tec and I'm told that spilts aren't going to cut it. Thanks again Danny
jack s  what is the width of foot pocket?
RYAN F  I don't have the exact measurements off the top of my head, but they are pretty generous foot pockets. I can't see anyone having difficulty fitting there foot into it. On a different note they're not overly wide. These are really great fins. When the first showed up I thought the foot pocket may be a little too wide as I have a narrow foot, but the way that these are set up they'll fit just about anyone. The straps are adjustable. I am a special forces operator, and the guys on my companies dive team recommended these.
jack s  Thanks and Thank You for your service to our country!
