    These fins are an amazing value, was in the keys and my DM who was wearing $220 Apollos commented on my speed and said he was having a hard time keeping up!
    The foot pocket is very large and does not fit well with my soft soled boots, however they fit perfect with my Sea Soft Stealth's which the Apollo's did not! Overall an Amazing fin at this price!! I wish they IST offered them with SS spring straps.

    Good value for money

    Not as efficent as the Oceanic V12's but less expensive. I use these for both SCUBA diving and snorkeling.

          Comments about IST F-2 Talaria Open Heel Split Fins, Black:

          This was my first fin purchase and I am very pleased. They look and feel like they would be cumbersome and heavy when you first handle them but once they are in the water you literally glide effortlessly and gracefully through the water. I am a tall woman with large feet so the fit is very nice with my soft soled fin socks. I'm feeling more like a fish every day! Thanks!
