Nice but heavy

Nice propulsion but HEAVY. Will figure out how to add some foam to ankles to counteract heavy fins pulling feet down all the time.

    Comments about Oceanic Vortex V12 Split Fins:

    Not familiar with fins at all & purchased these after reading multiple reviews & right price. Turns out they are a bit heavy but in the water thats not an issue. I do love the split fin. After borrowing some without the split my ankles & knees became sore. The split helps with the ergo discomfort. My family has now taken up SCUBA & Ill be buying 4 more sets of these.

      Comments about Oceanic Vortex V12 Split Fins:

      I have tried several others and have found none better.
      My original fins are still good. I bought these because they were on sale to use as backup.
      About the sizing. My original V 12's were size Regular. The catalog lists a M and XL. I previously ordered an XL and they were too big. This time I ordered a M. When I received them they were size Regular like my originals and fit perfect. I wear a size 12 shoe.

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
      Ronn S  Been using these for 10 years and love them, one broke on strap holder, after that amount of time its ok.
      MONTE S  Are these fins the same size as Atomic Splitfin?
      JENNIFER H  The Atomic Split fins the come in size Small,medium,large and x-large. The Vortex v12 the come in size x-small,small,medium or x-large
      MONTE S  Outside dimension is what I meant. If you put an atomic fin next to an oceanic fin ,would they be the same length and width.
      Shopper  Using for snorkeling, not with dive boot. I have a men's size 12 foot. Will Med. be the right size?
      Frank L  These are designed to be worn with a boot. Will not be comfortable if used without one.
