About Omega Amphibian Flip Fin

Just imagine...a high performance fin you can also walk in when entering and exiting the water...who knew? The days of dragging your fins in and out of the water are finally over! Dynamic Scuba Fins (or "flip fins") are a totally new class of fins. Take them out once and you will never go back to traditional fins. The revolutionary and durable Aqua-Hinge Mechanism and highly efficient non-vented blade design provide an essential combination of performance and safety for Scuba divers at all levels. For swimming, no other open heel fin can match the power and comfort provided by the Amphibian, which features a prominent central web configuration contributing to increase propulsion and reduced load required during sustained kicking.

A natural evolution within the dive industry, the Amphibian Fin System is designed to be strapped on prior to entering the water and removed after exiting. The heavy duty springs push the soft blade webbing up to ride gently against the shin while on the surface. This makes walking, climbing boat ladders and other movements as easy as wearing no fins at all. Once in the water, the Amphibian blades are flipped down into swimming position by simply kicking naturally in the water, and flipped back up by pushing back on the release levers before getting out.

The fins are manufactured with the finest of materials. The blades are made from a combination of soft, durable thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and a more ridged TPE. The soft TPE web is designed to increase propulsion and reduce the load required for sustained kicking and the more ridged TPE blade inlays increase coefficient of friction on blade. The Aqua-Hinge is a heavy duty hinge featuring 316-military grade anti-corrosive stainless steel springs. The fins come equipped with durable rubber fin straps that have an oversized thumb loop and squeeze-style" side-release buckles all for easy donning and doffing.Fins are available in multiple sizes and colors. Fins are proudly made in the USA.

The Omega Amphibian Flip Fin is commonly used for Recreation, SCUBA, Snorkeling, Travel and more. The Omega Amphibian Flip Fin is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced, Recreational Diver among others. The Omega Amphibian Flip Fin is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Omega Amphibian Flip Fin: Accommodates Boots, Comfortable, Efficient.

Very well made fin. Takes some practice

Very well made fin, a little wierd to look at, but they acutally WORK!! Love being able to walk in the fins. The release catch is stiff and requires a little practice to get use to.

Way too difficult to put down and up

I bought these fins for float tubing. They are way too hard to put down in the water, and way to hard to put up when I am done. Am very disappointed in the product. I am in touch with the manufacturer to see if possibly I have a defective pair. I have read several places where they have accidentally put the stiffer military latch on non-military products. We shall see

Best Fin Design Ever!

By

from St Pete Beach , FL, US

The best thing ever for boat diving or walking around in a cramped boat. Absolutely Terrific idea and design that makes both getting off and back on the boat that much easier.

Good Idea

By

Used these fins on boat dives for 3 years. Very convenient on boat deck. Noticed some material separation at material joints but this was not a big problem. On a recent trip to Cozumel both fins cracked through the letter "M" in the "Omega" logo. Will probably buy it again but I'm still concerned over the materials quality.

Terrible for walking in water!

By

These are great for walking on the sand, but once you enter the water with any kind of swell or surf they severely inhibit walking forward. The reason I purchased is for a bad spine and really hate donning fins in water. So suiting up and walking with fins seemed like a great idea until I got to the water and the other 7 in the group just walked on out in the surf and I could not keep up walking forward for sure and not walking backwards either. I had to finally take them off to catch up with the group that was about 20 yards ahead of me and then put them back on once I got to deeper water.. on a boat dive they did great but the propulsion was nowhere near my twin jet scubapro fins. I had to fight to keep up underwater. Since I used them on this one dive trip Leisure Pro said they would not accept a return even though I am highly disatisfied with the product. Basically they said only defect or not used, basically you can open something and put it back in the package and they will accept it back otherwise it will not be accepted back... it is not like Amazon's return policy where if you are unhappy you can return an item. Frustrated - back to ScubaPro fins.

FANTASTIC Fins

By

I have had these for 4 seasons and love them more each time. It's so easy to walk on a rocking boat; kick to extend the fins in water; and snap-back easily for climbing back up the ladder. The only surprise is that everyone doesn't have them too.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Charles N  I've had flip fins for 6 years now and love everything about them. I'm getting another pair in mine. Six years and they case I lose one of mine. Six years and they still work great.
STEVE A  great for exiting a boat
ANDREW Z  Make my dive day alot more enjoyable, one less item to carry into the water with
Doc W  I would use these fins in a "float-tube" for flyfishing. I wear BOOTFOOT waders that have a somewhat large, fixed shoe (as opposed to booties or a wading shoe.) Should they fit???
TYRONE S  Yes you could. I would check to see if the manufacturer was still in business. Last I heard they were not.
WILLIAM S  Hi, They probably won't fit. I also have bootfoot waders & could not use them, I wear a size 11-12. Hope this helps.
STEVEN L  I do believe that the Flip Fin will fit waders (I just checked the size of both my waders, my dive boots and the boots on my dry suit. There seems to be little difference in there size.
DENNIS P  I wear a large fin normally and had to buy pads because of so much room. my wife has the medium fins and they even feel large on me. I have a wide foot and that's not a problem. the bootfoot might be somewhat larger though.
Marilyn S  I would recommend going up a size with those waders.
STEVE A  I am not sure about the fit but walking in water with the fins "up" in current is difficult as the force against your leg is multiplied in moving water. I find them most useful when walking on a flat deck boat
ADAM K  If you are talking about those velvet bottom shoes. I think fly fishers wear. Probably it might help to go a size bigger if possible.
LAWRENCE M  I'm curious about the overall size of these fins. Can they be carried in the plane on a carry on? Does anyone have the actual size of the fin when it is open? That alone would make me buy it.
JOHN M  These are full size ocean fins, 2 feet from heel to tip. They would be very awkward in a carry on bag. They do, however, have an extremely strong stroke, ghiving you a lot of distance for a small effort. They are also very durable; I've been using mine (approx. 4 dives a month) for 5-6 years.
JASON S  I don't know about being carried on a plane, I don't fly, but the dimensions are 26 3/8"long x 9 3/8" wide without the strap on. Mine came with a cary bag-approx. 32"x11" enough room for fins and a mask in it's protective case, also has a zippered pouch that is big enough to cary my 2 snorkles and a spare set of gloves. My fins are size XL.
DAN S  I have a pair of extra large Flipfins. I'm not sure if other sizes have different dimensions. The over all length is 26 inches long when the blade is straight out and 9 1/4 inches wide at the widest part of the blade. When the blade is flipped up, its about 19 inches, and the foot pocket is about 12 inches long I use mine at the local aquarium, where at the entry point there is no chair or place to lean, so other people have to have someone to hold on to for balance while they put their fins on, I just walk up and step right in. Dan S.
GREGORY K  I have a large pair of the fins, and they're about 26 inches in length when extended. They're easily transportable on a plane. Be sure to get the individual inserts, too. GK
LAWRENCE M  Thanks Gregory, What about putting them in a 21 inch carry on, will the fit when opened up? I tried a short pair of fins once, but not enough kick. These I think would work if I could get them into a carry on.
GREGORY K  At 26 inches, they'll "fit" but you won't be able to close the carry-on bag because the fins will extend by 5 inches. Why not buy a pair, try them once, and if they don't work to your satisfaction, return them.
Derwood A  I'm 6'4" and they hit me about 15" up my leg, or 3/4 of the way up my shin, when in the up position. Don't see why they wouldn't fit in a carry or or a plus 1. Love them by the way. Everybody calls me a transformer when I wear them. I lack an ACL in my right leg and balance can be difficult, especially backing up. Flipped up, I don't have to worry about my fins getting stepped on. Once in the water, one good kick locks them. Coming out, you pop them open with your heel and climb the ladder. The big advantage there is if you get knocked off the ladder with a wave or pulled from the boat by the current, you're still wearing them so you can reengage them, swim back to the ladder, and flip them up again.
