    I used this fin for snorkling and it didn't perform to well. The fins would probably work well for scuba because once they were underwater they performed very well...though big and I became tired easily...however they were rockets underwater and I don't snorkle enough to be a pro and that could lead to my fatigue. While snorkling at the top the fins were very buoyant and slapped the top of the water. I'll keep this fins around for cold water but I'll probably just by a set of warm water fins that are a split design or a little smaller. But again I'm just a recreational diver...the qualitry and comfort was very good and an overall good value.

    I bought these after reading the raves on online reviews. I thought the large surface area would translate to higher power. I tried it on a pool and was greatly disappointed by the amount of effort it took. Plus, the speed was less than what I could achieve with cheaper body glove snap fins I used for snorkelling. It was returned to the store the next day. I wouldn't recommend these fins.

    Comments about Oceanic Vector Open Heel Fins:

    When I bought these I hoped that they would be an open heal version of my favorite Carib fins by the same manufacturer. They are not. They are too stiff to be efficient.
